This review is from: The Return of the King (The Lord of the Rings, Part 3) (Mass Market Paperback)
I became interested in the trilogy when my brother Chris made me read "The Hobbit." Though many people skip the prequel to the trilogy, it certainly helped me to connect things to all 3 books of "The Lord of the Rings." It took me a total of 5 months to read "The Hobbit", "The Fellowship of the Ring", "The Two Towers", and "The Return of the King." I loved all of the books, but my all time favorite was "The Return of the King." I love Aragorn, and this was his book -- well, a part of it was. The first half of the book was a little emotional, but it was worth it. When I finished the book, I was almost torn apart. The ending totally surprised me, not only because it wasn't something that could have been predicted, but because these wonderful characters: Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Legolas, Gandalf, and Gimli, were ripped away from me. They were my family for 5 months, and now they were gone with not another word. Though saying goodbye to the Trilogy was hard, I would never ever go back on those 5 wonderful months and not read the books. Especially since it's summertime, this is a great time to read these books. A little part of me still believes these wonderful characters are with me, and will never go away.
