REVIEW: Return of the King


Title: Return of the King
Author: J.R.R. Tolkien
Finished: April 21, 2010
Pages: 512
Published: 1954
Format: audiobook/paperback

The final book of the Lord of the Rings series, was probably one of my most favorite. I loved the introduction of The Fellowship of the Ring, but I loved the conclusion of the story and tying up all loose ends.

Having seen the movie, the third chapter was always my favorite which probably explains why I enjoyed the third book the best. I listened to most of it on audiobook while driving too and from work and getting ready in the morning. It helped me understand hearing someone else speaking the words.

The Return of the King is the final completion of the journey and fellowship, the destruction of the ring and the crowing of a new king to bring everything full circle. It was a great tale that incorporated all your favorite characters and villains, romance and danger, and plenty of action.
