Product description

Review

‘An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent, in a region where everything is invented, forest, moor, river, wilderness, town and the races which inhabit them.’
The Observer

‘Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century.’
Sunday Telegraph

From the Back Cover

'The Return of the King' is the third part of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, 'The Lord of the Rings.'

The Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures as the quest continues. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the Kings of the West, joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and took part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escaped into Fangorn Forest and there encountered the Ents. Gandalf returned, miraculously, and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman.

Meanwhile Sam and Frodo progressed towards Mordor to destroy the Ring, accompanied by Smeagol – Gollum, still obsessed by his 'preciouss'. After a battle with the giant spider, Shelob, Sam left his master for dead; but Frodo is still alive – in the hands of the Orcs. And all the time the armies of the Dark Lord are massing.

"Tolkien was a storyteller of genius."
'Literary Review'

"One of the most intense feats of the imagination of our times."
'Birmingham Post'
