Meanwhile, the other Fellowship members are preparing for war against the armies of the Dark Lord, Sauron...

    El Silmaríl·lion de J. R. R. Tolkien (mirryi)
    mirryi: The Silmarillion recounts the history of the Elder Days; a must-read for those interested in Tolkein's imagined lore.

    Oswald: Return of the King de Edoardo Albert (heidialice)
    heidialice: Oswald is a tribute to Tolkien and his scholarship, and while strictly historical (fiction) with no fantasy elements, is in my opinion a worthy companion read!

There are so many wonderful moments in this:
- Eowyn defending her fallen king from the Nazgûl and Ring Wraith
- Aragon sending disheartened soldiers back to guard the ford
- Samwise realising it’s a one way trip to Mount doom
- Samwise carrying Frodo up Mount Doom
- Samwise showing mercy to Gollum
- Frodo showing mercy to wormtail
- The eagles are coming
- Frodo and Samwise being honoured as the ones who saved middle earth
- Samwise love for Rosie Cotton
- Merry and Pippen taking back the shire
- Samwise spreading the Elven dust over the shire and the resulting fruitfulness in the Spring ( )

Well, we arrive, at last, at the final entry of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. It is a bittersweet farewell to a classic story, but, at the same time, kind of welcomed. I'm sorry, but as soon as Sauron was destroyed, I wanted the story to end right there and then as that was the end of my cares. Unfortunately, the book just goes on and on for another 110 pages, which is nearly 10% of the entire trilogy. I know Tolkien wanted to wrap EVERY SINGLE THING into a nice little bow, even things no one really gives two shits about, but it was just too much. The entire "Scouring of the Shire" subplot is entirely unnecessary, in my opinion. I see no purpose to having another climax after the end of the main storyline, but it's there anyway, so what am I to do?

Despite all my complaining, this book still has some great qualities to it that I cannot overlook. For one, "Return of the King" definitely has an epic, grand, and climactic feel to it. There are tons of massive battles between Good and Evil in this one. Everything comes to a head, and Frodo finally arrives at Mordor. It's hard not to get excited at all this craziness. However, as I mentioned in my previous review, I don't like how Tolkien constantly tells us how epic and grand everything is. The amount of times the dude used the words "Lo!" and "Behold!" drives me off the wall. Tolkien, let me decide how I feel about this story and its scale, alright?

Though I've stated in my previous reviews that I dislike how Aragorn is "too perfect" in these books, I will say that I did finally somewhat enjoy reading about him in this book. He's not made any less perfect (if anything, just more perfect, majestic, and kingly), but it is nice reading about certain aspects of his character, like his mercy, his generosity, his ability to set pretty much the entire realm of Middle-Earth right, etc. I do get feel-good emotions reading about it at times.

Just like in the previous entry of this trilogy, the pacing isn't that great here. I've already mentioned the 110-page conclusion of this book, but there's also many other parts that drag on. A good example is the beginning. Every time I re-read "Lord of the Rings", I always get the urge to put off reading "Return of the King" for a little while after ending "The Two Towers". Almost nothing interesting happens for many, MANY pages, and it just drains me, man.

Anyway, that is how I feel about this book, and, with that, we're done with this franchise. There are obviously some other books that delve into the extremely intricate and rich lore of this world, but I'll probably re-read and review "A Song of Ice and Fire" next before going through "The Silmarillion", which will actually be a new read for me, though I now a little bit about it from watching tons of CivilizationEx videos.

It took me until my mid-60s to read The Lord of the Rings trilogy. While I certainly enjoyed the imaginative world Tolkien created and the hero's quest, I was distracted throughout by the scarcity of female characters. I realize the series was penned in the 1950s, when women's place was "supposed to be" in the home and men got to have all of the adventures, that alone was off-putting to me. Still a wonderful series and I can understand why it is so beloved. Now I will have to watch the movie, which I also somehow managed to avoid until now.

Reread in 2023 after having seen the movies in 2021. Such interesting characters. ( )

Nobody seems to have a moderate opinion: either, like myself, people find it a masterpiece of its genre or they cannot abide it . . . The demands made on the writer's powers in an epic as long as 'The Lord of the Rings' are enormous . . . but I can only say that Mr. Tolkien has proved equal to them.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the shadows lie.

Pippin looked out from the shelter of Gandalf's cloak. He wondered if he was awake or still sleeping, still in the swift-moving dream in which he had been wrapped so long since the great ride began.

J.R.R. Tolkien's complete work The Lord of the Rings consists of six Books, frequently bound in three Volumes:
  • Volume 1: The Fellowship of the Ring, consisting of Book I, "The Ring Sets Out" and Book II, "The Ring Goes South";
  • Volume 2: The Two Towers, consisting of Book III, "The Treason of Isengard," and Book IV, "The Ring Goes East"; and
  • Volume 3: The Return of the King, consisting of Book V, "The War of the Ring," and Book VI, "The End of the Third Age," with Appendices.
This LT Work consists of Volume 3, The Return of the King; please do not combine it with any other part(s) or with Tolkien's complete work, each of which have LT Works pages of their own.

CAUTION: It appears that most copies of the title O Senhor dos Anéis: O Retorno do Rei in Portuguese translation are the complete Volume 3 of "The Lord of the Rings," published in English as The Return of the King. However, a Brazilian edition of the same title reportedly includes only the second part (of two) of Volume 3, roughly corresponding to Book VI of the larger Work, The End of the Third Age; see O Senhor dos Anéis. Please be mindful of the difference, and only combine records for Works having the same content. Thank you.
