  1. The authority of Sauron only continues to grow, as his forces ransack Rohan s population and grab Rohan by its reigns The Grey Company must seek help from all those opposing Sauron s rule and must also aid their allies The War of the Ring is classic J.R.R Tolkien and like most classic J.R.R Tolkien books, it was quite dull at points.Some readers would undeniably find this book verbose For example, you might find yourself reading five pages of size eight text about the handsomeness a dwarve s bea [...]

  2. I won t do a full review of this book because it is the 5th book in the series the first half of Return of the King This one was much action packed than the rest of the series so far and I absolutely love following this set of characters compared to Frodo and Sam, and the way this one ended, I really need to read the last one soon

  3. A grim book of war, and war strategy, this is my least favourite of the Lord of the Rings so far The language continues to be beautiful I still love the characters I also suspect that I would have enjoyed this book if I had read it immediately after finishing The Two Towers But the book is relentlessly dark, and lacks a lot of the interesting character introductions and world building of the other books It was a nice read It is still Tolkien, and still The Lord of the Rings, after all It s just [...]

  4. I did not like the beginning of this book as much as I liked the others but it became engaging with every page and tension was at maximum when it ended to continue from where the previous book left Sam and Frodo.

  5. Eh, I m going to be consigned to a special hell for saying this but this book has been the worst part of the Lord of the Rings series so far.I mean, this is the exciting part all the battles and action, violence and horror all concentrated into the one book where all the tension and conspiracies were leading up toBut Tolkien just doesn t write action very well In my opinion I ve probably been spoiled by a lot of my modern reading, but still What is even worse is that on a number of occasions th [...]

  6. My favorite book of the series so far, perhaps along with the third one Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn chase Merry and Pippin across Rohan The battle of Gondor takes place and I loved the action and excitement of it all Merry and Pippin find out that they are made of braver stuff than they supposed, Merry even being essential in the slaying of the terrifying black captain along with Eowyn who is a kickass hellcat Cool, brave and tough, who knows what might have happened but for her and Merry If only [...]

  7. I am really disappointed that I couldn t get into this, it just felt like a chore and most of the time I couldn t even remember what I read, but I will just blame this on the fact there was a lot of hardcore parts prior to this and maybe I should have had a break before carrying on, fore now I cannot remember much of this epic battle that had been urging on in this I may have to re read just this novel in the future, but for now, it just dragged on and although I was laughing at some parts the b [...]

  8. Ah, The Return of the King It s such a satisfying read whilst all the miniature endings were a little frustrating in the movie, they work perfectly here I adore The Scouring of the Shire especially I don t have much to say that I haven t already said my review of the other volumes of Lord of the Rings except perhaps that I read the appendices for the first time which was an experience The history sections were interesting but I have to admit drifting off in the language sections linguistics was [...]

  9. I read this book because it is in a genre that I like and because it is in a series that I am reading The category this book completes is a fantasy book The parts of this book that I like are that it is finally getting to the main part of the whole story and that even on the fifth book it hasn t lost track of the storyline There were no parts of this book that I didn t like.

  10. A lord of a ringe war of the ring by j.r.r Tolkien I liked that the ring turned you invisibled that ther are so many creatures,it must have taked a long time to think of all them.i also like that you need to destroy the ring to set balance back conclusion action lovers will love this book.

  11. War and rumors of war and battles were fought I liked the Dead Army who only Aragorn could summon to fight the battle in Minas Tirith A quote from Gimli Certainty of death, small chance of success, what are we waiting for

  12. That s better After the lacklustre last volume which was devoted to the adventures of Sam and Frodo, this volume looks in on Aragorn and the rest as they weather the storm of Mordor as war finally breaks out in Middle Earth Excellent stuff all around, and a rotten cliffhanger.

  13. The most action packed novel thus far I am so excited to be done this book but I also do not want to reach the end.
