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

As 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. -From Goodreads

Genre: Fantasy // Fiction // Sci-fi // Classics // Young Adult

My Thoughts: Although it is a close tie with the first book, this one is my favorite book in the trilogy! It’s definitely a tear-jerker, but I love it! You get to see how the characters act in the face of danger and how everyone deals with their own problems.

Writing Style: Pretty easy for a classic. Very descriptive.

Story Line: I loved most of the story line! There was definitely a lot of action in this book.  The part that seemed to drag on for me was when Sam and Frodo were trudging their way to Mt. Doom. Maybe it was just me, but it felt like forever! But I totally understand, cause it was a long way to go.

Characters: We still see that more characters are introduced. I love pretty much everyone except Frodo and Denethor. *ugh!* Tbh, I actually like Sam a little less in the books…

Favorite Part: Such a tough decision! I’ll just say that I liked the battles and the Shire part. 😉

Cons: From what I can recall, there weren’t any cons.

My Rating: 5 Stars *****

Conclusion: Okay, if you’ve read all of my reviews on the LOTR trilogy and still haven’t decided to read them, then what are doing here! Go read them! You will not be disappointed. And if you have read them (or at least one), let me know what you thought of it! Later darlings! ❤
