Rating (Out of 5 Stars): 7 at least !
So it is better to talk of the story as a whole...and a thousand words would never be enough. This third novel then continues an truly epic work which tells the story of a battle of good against evil set in a fantasy world. Your basic premise puts a band of hobbits(small hairy humanoid characters) on a quest to destroy a magical ring which would give the evil lord the power he needs to crush the forces of good. The only way they can do this is to cast the ring itself into the cracks of doom - lava filled chasms deep in the heart of Mordor...the enemy lands.
The Lord of The Rings series may be fantasy novels, but they have a universal appeal. i have never come across anyone who would argue that they didn't enjoy reading them. Tolkein has a way with words which can draw the reader deep into his work, so much so that time will fly past and you'll find yourself reaching the end of the story far too soon and be left gagging for more. You can't ask for more than this offers, and thats the bottom line - five stars isn't enough.
