The Lord of the Rings Summary

The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien

This is the final part of Tolkien's epic masterpiece, "The Lord of the Rings", featuring a cover image from the film. Impossible to describe in a few words, Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world convincing in its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal. This is a reissue celebrating the release of the major motion picture trilogy, incorporating images from the films on the covers. The story focuses on the forces of Gondor and Rohan, which must make a last desperate stand against the monstrous armies of the Dark Lord, Sauron. While good and evil engage in mighty battle, the fate of Middle-earth rests in the hands of two weary hobbits.

Evening Standard 'Extraordinarily imaginative, and wholly exciting' The Times 'The story itself is superb' Observer 'A most remarkable feat' Guardian 'Masterpiece?
