The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien
Series: The Lord of the Rings #3
Format: Paperback

Based on how long it has taken me to read this many people assume that I don’t like the book, but that is not true.  I am simply a Grad student.  One thing I realized is that though these are no short chapters I enjoyed this much more when I read several chapters at once.  I think the reason is Tolkien’s world is so thorough, so dense that you need to get into it and let it seep in if you really want to enjoy it.  Overall I loved this book and I loved this series.  There is a sense of harsh reality within this fantastical world.  In the end, good wins (I’m not ruining anything for anyone that has ever even heard of Tolkien), but to me the beautiful part is that some people get to enjoy it but you are not allowed to forget the sacrifices made by others.  And so the journey continues.

Edit: Almost every other book has the cover that I own but honestly I own the movie covers of these which I hate so here is something pretty for you.
