Awesome ending to an epic,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Return of the King: The Return of the King Vol 3 (The Lord of the Rings) (Paperback)
Tolkien's descriptive writing is 100% if not more as it outlines the true emotional terror of evil in realistic and gripping epic fashion. it certainly left me out of breath by the last page. Frodo's situation sits as a double edged sword as the fight between the ring and his conscience, and his mission proves whether he succedes or fails. Interesting twist at the end makes this the most popular book this century. A must. The appendix is worth reading as well as it outlines the history before and after this series and completes the story in true epic style.
