  • J.R.R.Tolkien is a great author, and it really shows in this tale of deceitfulness,faith, courage and heart. I suggest you read The Lord of the Rings: The Return ofthe King. You will enjoy it!

  • The book, Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, is truly the best book ever. With a reading and maturity level of high school, it reads like a smooth piece of rock. It is highly recommended and is fun and exciting to read.
