Synopsis from Goodreads...
In the third volume of The Lord of the Rings trilogy the good and evil forces join battle, and we see that the triumph of good is not absolute. The Third Age of Middle-earth ends, and the age of the dominion of Men begins.
Beginning: "Pippin looked out from the shelter of Gandalf's cloak."
56: "A young man, Merry thought as he returned the glance, less in height and girth than most."
Comments: I have finally read The Return of the King, and so I can mark The Lord of the Rings off my TBR list. I had a great time reading this story. What are you reading this week?
