Pickpick

Finished The Lord of the Rings. Such a great story with so many different characters. I understand why it‘s a classic. I think the ending is sufficiently satisfying and a fitting end to a long tale. Also the appendices are definitely worth the read (if only to learn that Sam has 13 kids and is elected Mayor of the Shire 7 times).

“‘Here then at last comes the ending of the Fellowship of the Ring,‘ said Aragorn ... ‘some of us may meet yet again at times; but I fear that we shall not all be gathered together ever again.‘”

Tolkien really does endings properly. This follow-through describing what happens well after the story‘s climax is much appreciated.

“Then Éowyn looked in the eyes of Aragorn, and she said: ‘Wish me joy, my liege-lord and healer!‘
And he answered: ‘I have wished thee joy ever since first I saw thee. It heals my heart to see thee now in bliss.‘”

Had to take a moment to Awww when I read these lines

I didn‘t know Merry and Pippin grow because of the ent-draughts! I love this little detail

“...and then [Gandalf] laughed, and the sound was like music, or like water in a parched land; and as he listened the thought came to Sam that he had not heard laughter, the pure sound of merriment, for days upon days without count. It fell upon his ears like the echo of all the joys he had ever known.”

It feels so good to laugh after being lonely for a while. Cant imagine how great it feels after surviving something really horrible or painful.

“For the Quest is achieved, and now all is over. I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam.”

Book Frodo is making me retroactively like movie Frodo more. I think I might like him just because Sam likes him. Good enough for Sam Gamgee is good enough for me.

“The strangest strangers turn out to know it and we talk about Gandalf and mad Gollum and the bridge of Khazad-dûm while the party or classroom or the train rattled along unheard. Old friends rediscover it, as I do-to browse through any book of the Ring trilogy is to get hooked once more into the whole legend-and we talk of it at once as though we had read just read it for the first time“ -Peter S Beagle,the forward.❤️YES❤️#lordoftherings #tolkien
