    "I've been doing a fun little experiment where I try to read the best novels of every year of the 20th Century, and I got to 1954, and someone recommended 'The Return of the King.' Yes, the Lord of the Rings novel, and strangely, I've never read it. I thought it was pretty good but more of a young adult novel, I can't imagine it was one of the best pieces of literature published that year. Definitely a good book, but not really for my purposes."

    "This book was epic! I loved the adventure and story. It was just a really good book!"

    "Tolkein is considered the father of fantasy writing. We would not have an entire, and quite popular genre of books had it not been for the work of Tolkein. This is most exemplified in his Lord of the Rings series which ends on a high note with The Return of the King. However, I'm not quite sure what this has to do with Catholicism or teenagers. Perhaps, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe would be better as it has Christian overtones."

    "The Return of the King or The Lord of the Rings is the final part of Tolkien's brilliant story. Oh to get into the mind of the person who think like this. This book is a recommended collector version of the story and comes with illustrations that will impress any reader and collector."

    "This is the classic final book of the Lord of the Rings series. It's a recent edition of the thrilling tale of Frodo and Sam and their foray into Mordor. I think previous fans of the series will love to revisit it and new fans will love discovering this fantastic story. "

    "This is an outstanding series of books. I have seen it engage readers who otherwise "HATE" to read. It's long and twisty, but they still keep up and read it to the end."

    "I bought the book "The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings)" for my niece, a fan of the saga, and she really appreciated it, maybe even more than the movie. There's no need to introduce who Frodo and his company are, but I surely suggest to read the book to whoever liked the movie, and for some reason didn't feel like reading the book: do it, you won't regret!"

    "If you are a lord of the ring's fan, enough said. If you are not, this is the third and final book of the trilogy where the epic battle against the dark lord sauron is coming to the end. Epic battles, climatic ending and the struggle between good and evil."

    "Im a die hard LOTR fan. This book here is my favorite in the series. Amazing author. "

  • Cheryl Simmons
    Written on April 23, 2018
    "It's hard to imagine that someone doesn't know about The Lord of the Rings now after a series of wildly popular movies and massive circulation of the books since 1955. If you don't know then I would say the Christian part of these books is all symbols and allegory and not directly presented as Christianity. Also, you should trust that their is a reason for it being so popular and maybe start with The Fellowship of the Ring or The Hobbit."
    Leonardo Ventura
    Written on April 22, 2018
    "Any Christian would want to read The return of the King (The Lord of the Rings). If you love science-fiction then The return of the King is the best novel with science fiction that you can hope for!"

    "Who doesn't love Lord of the Rings? This book is perfect if you love elves and just simply want more Lord of the Rings. I love that it is an older book from 1955. It really gives you a different perspective on writing styles from that time compared to today's writings an authors. "

    "The last book in the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy is an absolute classic. If you're at all even remotely a fantasy fan you must read this."
  • Frank Stone
    Written on April 21, 2018
    "Of all of the Lord of the Rings books, Return of the King is probably my least favorite. The world building from the first two books is largely dropped in favor of the climax, followed by a series of disappointing endings."

    "He has some interesting recommendations and all good ones. Of course the Lord of the Rings series would be one of them. Very good book. But as you know it is very long and an be a bit intimidation for someone who are not avid readers. One of the books recommended by him that I think is better is "The Girl on the train" Very suspenseful, easier to read and entertaining."

    "I first read Tolkien back in middle school, and of course I have revisited him time and time again. It's not overblown to say The Return of the King is probably the best entry in his world famous The Lord of the Rings trilogy. I highly recommend it to anyone even remotely interested in the Fantasy genre."

    "This book is fantastic, it describes a very unique story, and it absorbs you in the story, you will read every page of this book being surprised on the situations and the character described on it, and i am sure you will love this book as i do. "

    "What an amazing book (and series of books)! I read these the first time when I was 6 or 7 and all that wonder is still here 20 years later. These things are classics for a reason, and they're even better than the also amazing movies. Everyone needs to read it at least once."

    "I struggled through the Two Towers, when I was a youngster, and when I got to Return of the King, it went back to being a page turner for me. I could feel the end of the epic approaching, and each page seemed to last less and less. Finally, I reached the end, and instead of sadness, I discovered the glossary in the back; going through Sindarin, and getting my first taste of runes, sparked in me a lifelong passion for languages. But, also, I can get away with telling my wife, "Sevig thû úan"."
