The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkein

This is the climax of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. I thought it was a spectacular ending to the story and I loved every part of it. I especially liked the part after the major confrontation when the hobbits returned home. It added a lot to the story and was very enjoyable. In this book, Aragorn and his companions are preparing for battle with the forces of Mordor. At the same time Frodo and Sam are painstakingly making their way across Mordor to Mount Doom. The armies of Gondor and Rohan must do all they can to give Frodo the chance to destroy the ring or all hope of defeating Sauron will be lost. There is fighting and some reference to drinking.

The greatest trilogy ever written - period. There is nothing like reading a great fantasy novel that is written so well. Most of the fantasy novels I run across these days are written so poorly, I get bored quite fast. Tolkien didn't shy away from using his amazing grasp of the English language.

For anyone who has not read the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, stop whatever you are reading and read them. They are a classic and should be read by all serious fans of quality writing.
