The Return of the King (Thing 2)

We read The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien, which is the final book in The Lord of the Rings series.

In the book, Frodo and Sam destroy the ring but the quest wasn't easy. First, they found Golem. Then they walked into a cave to go to Mount Doom, but they meet a giant spider that tries to eat them. Then, Frodo gets taken by some orcs and later Sam saves him. After that, they go to Mount Doom and Golem tries to steal the ring. He bit Frodo's finger off and Golem started walking around saying, "My precious." Then Golem falls in to the Fires of Mordor.

I would give this book because it's crazy and has adventure. I only gave it three stars because I like the other Lord of the Rings books better.

P.S. My favorite Lord of the Rings book is The Fellowship of the Ring.

The Return of the King (Thing 1)

We read The Return of the King by J. R. R. Tolkien. It's the final book in the Lord of the Rings series.

This book was probably my least favorite out of all of them. It was the most confusing and the others were better in my opinion. There are lots of battles with Gandolf and the others and Frodo and Sam are still following Golem to destroy the ring. There are bits of humor near the end of the book and it has a surprising finish.

I would give this book. It was the most confusing but it was a good wrap up story.

For our activity we watched the animated Lord of the Rings movie. It had all three books in one movie and it was good but it was very strange. They left out tons of stuff and the ending wasn't at all like the book.

After reading all of the books, my favorite book in the series would have to be either The Hobbit (which technically isn't part of The Lord of the Rings) or The Two Towers.Link
