Of all three of Tokien's Lord of the Rings, this one is by far my favourite. The Return of the King tied up so many loose ends and I was completely satisfied on that part.

However, I still can't stand that Frodo didn't get his justification in the Shire. And that he never got his happiness. With Sam moving on and starting a family, it made Frodo's situation seem worse. He never got to fall in love or have a family. Merry and Pippin were rightly finished, and I like their ending.

All in all, it was very satisfying. I do want to know where that ship anchors at though...

Quotes Lyndsay Liked

J.R.R. Tolkien
“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.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King
