Oversized illustrated hardback edition of the final part of JRR Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, fully reset and featuring full-page watercolour paintings by award-winning artist, Alan Lee. The climactic volume of the trilogy, wherein the little hobbit and his trusty companions make a terrible journey to the heart of the land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron. Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR 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 which is totally convincing in its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal.

After befriending the skulking Gollum, Frodo finds himself on a secret passage to Mordor. After abandoning Sam in a cruel trick, Frodo enters a dark tunnel, without Gollum! After a long an intense battle with a gigantic spider named Shellob, Frodo and Sam reunite to destroy the Ring once and for all. But there's a catch. Sauron already knows they're here. With the remaining members of the Fellowship at the Black Gate, Sauron must defend his land before he can destroy the pair. With Aragorn buying Frodo and Sam some time, Frodo and Sam climb to the top of Mount Doom. But, Frodo ends up becoming swayed by the Rings' evil power. Will Frodo be able to destroy the Ring? or will he betray everyone, and give it to Sauron?

sooooooooo i loved it

THIS IS MY FAVORITE BOOK IN MY FAVORITE SERIS!!!!!!!!!!!!! Action filled and nerving, Frodo finally destroys the ring. The war is over. Sauron falls. HORRAY. And best of all, Bilbo sees his nephew again.

So far, this has been an extremely interesting book. It has been very exciting with many interesting events. I chose to read this book because I have already read the first 2 books (The fellowship of the ring and the two towers) which have been very interesting so I thought I would like to read this one. It has not disappointed me. I would highly recommend this book.

This book is so good but violent, well sometimes! I love the book anyway
