The Return of the King
The Return of the King: Being the Third Part of the Lord of the Rings | J.R.R. Tolkien
The third volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind themAs the Shadow of Mordor grows across the land, the Companions of the Ring have become involved in separate adventures. Aragorn, revealed as the hidden heir of the ancient Kings of the West, has joined with the Riders of Rohan against the forces of Isengard, and takes part in the desperate victory of the Hornburg. Merry and Pippin, captured by Orcs, escape into Fangorn Forest and there encounter the Ents. Gandalf has miraculously returned and defeated the evil wizard, Saruman. Sam has left his master for dead after a battle with the giant spider, Shelob; but Frodo is still alive—now in the foul hands of the Orcs. And all the while the armies of the Dark Lord are massing as the One Ring draws ever nearer to the Cracks of Doom. “A triumphant close . . . a grand piece of work, grand in both conception and execution. An astonishing imaginative tour de force.” – Daily TelegraphIncludes the complete appendices and index for The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

“Well, here at last, dear friends, on the shores of the Sea comes the end of our fellowship in Middle-earth. Go in peace! I will not say: do not weep; for not all tears are an evil.”Gandalf 🌋👑
Nothing like visiting dear friends. And that‘s exactly what it‘s like rereading this series. No matter how many times I read this one, I can‘t help but to get swept away in the grandest of adventures. Hate saying goodbye.. so I‘ll just say see ya later.

Bookwomble That's a well-loved book 😊 ❤📖❤ 2w

Definitely not my first time reading or even my first time rereading The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien.. but it is my first time reading this 1971 edition I snagged from a local vintage shop.
I‘m in love with the artwork on this cover.
Stoked to be going on this adventure again.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would. I watched all the movies when they first came out and I read the first book a few years later. I hadn't read much fantasy then, and it was a bit too intense for me at the time. I listened to the second book on audio a year or so ago, and I found that my mind wandered a lot. This one kept my interest and made me want to re-watch the movies.

After 6 months of listening, I FINALLY FINISHED IT! Due to changing of class schedules in the library, and honestly just Life, I didn‘t have much time to enjoy audiobook listening. HOWEVER, I very much enjoyed this one. I love the ending of the book more so than the movie- totally forgot it ended any other way! Now on to the Silmarillion ! 💙

#MiddleEarthMarch Day 21 - Dunharrow: Courses and ghosts on the Path of the Dead

I feel this is one of the least popular episodes in the book, and yet is soooo atmospheric and mysterious. I love that sense of being in contact with the dead, and so with the past. A past that doesn't reavel all is secrets (Stone of Erech anyone?).

Let's face it, ghosts in Middle-Earth are so fascinating.

#YearOfTolkien

Daisey I think it can be kind of tough to fit in with everything else because it is quite different, but I do love the dark and mysterious atmosphere of this section. 4mo

Then Gimli bowed low. ‘Nay, you are excused for my part, lord,‘ he said. ‘You have chosen the Evening; but my love is given to the Morning. And my heart forebodes that soon it will pass away forever.‘ — Gimli and Éomer talking about who is most beautiful between Arwen and Galadriel is so sweet. ?

Return of the King can be alternatively titled “How Many Times Can I Cry During a Battle Scene?”.

I am notoriously bad at reading the last book in a series. I‘ll put it off for as long as possible. I fall in love with these characters and worlds so deeply that the parting chapters are outright heartbreaking. The finale installment of the LOTR world shattered me and left me with the biggest smile all at the same time. 5/5⭐️

Up next: TAZ!

I have been on this book forever, people. Haven‘t had time to listen to it and unfortunately Tolkien is very hard for me to sit down and read physically. WELL this February #RuckChallenge just might be the way for me to get finished with this audiobook! 🥶💙 Completed last day of 2 miles, wore 18 lbs ( 1 weight was a can of 🍍 and the other a rock. I ran out of weights at home 😂)and did it in 35.19, my best time ! 🎉

„And as if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns, in dark Mindolluin's sides they dimly echoed. Great horns of the north wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last.“

I have read this books many times. Still I get goosebumps.

What do you fear, lady?" [Aragorn] asked.
"A cage," [Éowyn] said. "To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire.

Eowyn deserves better than Aragorn or Faramir. She deserved to be allowed to slay her enemy, travel with Aragorn wherever she damn well pleased, and died in glory if she wanted to. Now Faramir suggests that she only wanted to die in battle because Aragorn rejected her. BARF.

madamereadsalot1 Faramir is a whiney man child. 🙄 I wish they had picked a less attractive actor to play him in the movies. 😂 7mo

Wow, you guys! It‘s been a crazy few months. Since school started in September, I‘ve read at least nine books, plus lots of literary theory and many, many, many poems.

TK-421 @Leftcoastzen Most of the fires are in the provinces to the west of us so we're in no immediate danger here (except for the ever present smoke) but it's awful to think of all those trees on fire & the threat that poses to wildlife & humans alike. 11mo
archaeolibrarianologist I'm firmly convinced that folks down here will be the first to develop gills to ease breathing through the humidity. It'll be great when we return to the sea after the waters rise. 😁 11mo
