Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Being the third part of The Lord of the Rings.
While the evil might of the Dark Lord Sauron swarmed out to conquer all Middle-earth, Frodo and Sam struggled deep into Mordor, seat of Sauron's power. To defeat the Dark Lord, the accursed Ring of Power had to be destroyed in the fires of Mount Doom. But the way was impossibly hard, and Frodo was weakening. Weighed down by the compulsion of the Ring, he began finally to despair.
The awesome conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings, beloved by millions of readers around the world.
"The great tale of wonder, like the great novel, is not a preoccupation of children....[T]he adult mind has, if anything, greater need of fantasy than that of a child....In The Lord of the Rings, a whole Secondary World is created and successfully sustained through three large volumes. These are sure to remain Tolkien's life work, and are certainly destined to outlast our time." Loren Eisley, New York Herald Tribune Book Week
"There are very few works of genius in recent literature. This is one." Michael Straight, The Nation
"One of the great fairy-tale quests in modern literature." Time
"A triumphant close...a grand piece of work, grand in both conception and execution. An astonishing imaginative tour de force." Daily Telegraph
"A work of immense narrative power that can sweep the reader up and hold him enthralled for days and weeks." The Nation
"A remarkable book." Newsweek
"An extraordinary work — pure excitement." The New York Times
