    Tolkien is the master of world building With his writing comes generations of detailed history and lore Middle Earth did not simply spring up overnight Instead it is firmly established with the most thorough groundwork that is simply unmatched And here his epic trilogy comes to an end I ve read it many times over the years, and reviewing it is no easy task So, like my reviews of the first two books, I ve picked out ten things I really love about the book Spoilers ahead 1.The blade that w Tolkien is the master of world building With his writing comes generations of detailed history and lore Middle Earth did not simply spring up overnight Instead it is firmly established with the most thorough groundwork that is simply unmatched And here his epic trilogy comes to an end I ve read it many times over the years, and reviewing it is no easy task So, like my reviews of the first two books, I ve picked out ten things I really love about the book Spoilers ahead 1.The blade that was broken has been remadeFrom the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be kingAragorn never really felt kingly until he was given the sword of Elendil His commanding presence becamethan just a presence when he wielded the sword We all knew it was coming, but it was great to see it happen nonetheless 2.The last of the stewards With the return of the kings also ushers in the end of the stewards For all Boromir s weakness, and his father s madness, Faramir maintained his honour Had he taken the ring for himself, the realms of men would have fallen He played a pivotal role in the action, and his actions demonstrated that men are not as weak as the elves thought His fate and future titles show such a thing 3.Th oden s Sacrifice There are many heroes within this trilogy, many men who give up their lives to vanquish evil In spite of Gondor ignoring his calls for aid, in spite of Gondor watching Saruman ravish the lands of Rohan, Th oden still rides to her aid when his own lands are safe He honours his pledge even when the one made to him was broken Acting on the advice of Gandalf, he squashes his own hurt pride and rides for war because he understands what is at stake if he does not Th oden was a true king and one the bravest men of this story He knew what he rode to, but he went anywayArise, arise, Riders of Th oden Fell deeds awake, fire and slaughter spear shall be shaken, shield be splintered,a sword day, a red day, ere the sun rises Ride now, ride now Ride to Gondor4.Girl PowerWhat do you fear, lady Aragorn asked A cage, owyn said To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire There have not been many moments for women to show their strength in this story Arwen s moment in the films was non existent in the book Frodo was saved on the river by an Elf lord called Glorfindel So when Eowen battled the Witch King, it is the first major moment Tolkien gave to a female hero In a vastly male dominated genre, it was great to read this scene If I have one criticism of Tolkien, it s that we didn t seeof such things 5.Golem s internal warGolem almost comes back into the light He tries so very hard to conquer the ring, though ultimately it defeats him and he succumbs to its power Had Frodo never been forced to betray Golem to Faramir in The Two Towers I do think he would have stayed loyal Perhaps he would have survived the events of this book What do you think Could he ever have been on the ships bound to the grey havens after all had done 6.The Siege of Minas Tirith This is probably one of the most exciting action sequences I ve read in fiction Sauron s hoard is unleashed in all its brutal fury, and the realms of men quake in its wake Their defences are weak their courage faltering, but they do have one weapon to stem the tide the white rider Terry Brooks loved it so much he copied the entire thing, or thereabouts, in The Sword of Shannara. 7.The Mouth of SauronIs there any in this rout with authority to treat with me Or indeed with wit to understand meA massively unrepresented character on the screen and one who spent much of the third age waring the dwarves in the north and the elves of Mirkwood, The Mouth of Sauron is the vessel of Sauron s voice Second only to the Nazgul in the command structure, The Mouth of Sauron is sent in to negotiate, threaten and persuade whentact is required Nazgul are clearly incapable of such a task, so it falls to him I d love to knowabout this character, and his deeds, but his end at the Black Gate in the movie is most fitting We can only presume that he also died there in the book, though there is no mention of his demise.8.Hobbit loyalty Frodo Frodo wouldn t have got far without Sam Sam Now Mr Frodo, you shouldn t make fun I was being serious Frodo So was I.Sam saves Frodo so many times in this series Whilst Frodo has the burden of the ring, Sam has the burden of Frodo Without him Frodo would be dead, most likely murdered by Golem in his sleep or, if he made it that far alive, eaten by Shelob 9.The Hobbit warIn the films Saruman dies at Isengard In the book he is imprisoned by Treebeard only to later convince him to let him escape He and Wormtongue, in a senseless act of aggression, conquer the Shire Such a situation allows for the Hobbits to show that they no longer need wizards or Kings to deal with their problems They arrive back, rally their people, and crush the evil that has infected their home Saruman, who only has the power of his voice at this point, dies in the action All though this dragged the book out a bit, it was entirely necessary to show the growth of the characters after the story had ended 10.The Grey HavensIt also explains Frodo s decision to leave the Shire, something the movies fluffed up The Shire is never the same, and any attempt to rebuild it will never make it feel like home for Frodo He has gone through too much to go back to his old life So he needs a new one, one where he can heal and attempt to put his past behind him The beautiful lands to the west await him I love this final imageBut I have been too deeply hurt, Sam I tried to save the Shire, and it has been saved, but not for me It must often be so, Sam, when things are in danger some one has to give them up, lose them, so that others may keep them ________________________________You can connect with me on social media via My Linktree.__________________________________

    The last stand for the control of Middle Earth I WENT TO MIDDLE EARTH AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS CRUMMY RING That s the message in a t shirt that I got in a tourism travel and I still have it I thought that it was appropiate to begin my review about the third part and final of Lord of the Rings.All that fuzz about a ring that can turn you invisible You may think, but that was the least of its properties Its major use was being able to control of the rest of ring bearers with it, and if The last stand for the control of Middle Earth I WENT TO MIDDLE EARTH AND ALL I GOT WAS THIS CRUMMY RING That s the message in a t shirt that I got in a tourism travel and I still have it I thought that it was appropiate to begin my review about the third part and final of Lord of the Rings.All that fuzz about a ring that can turn you invisible You may think, but that was the least of its properties Its major use was being able to control of the rest of ring bearers with it, and if you think about that many of the most powerful beings in the Middle Earth possessed a ring, well, it seems logical why all that fuzz Moreover, a factor that not usually is pondered is that The One Ring also helps to extend the lifetime of a being to an absurd expanse, and since Sauron is just a shadow of his past self, it s evident why he needed The One Ring so bad.I commented in my review of the first part, The Fellowship of the Ring, about my theory of the plans of The One Ring Not Sauron s Not Saruman s But the One Ring It was obsessed about the Hobbits, since they were the last bastion of pure goodness in the whole Middle Earth Without making any spoilers, I am kinda sad that while it wasn t due actions of The One Ring, bute vil powers damaged that idyllic of asimple life Also, I think that the whole thing was unnecessary to the main story and even over extending the tale kinda ruining the final climax of the war.Back, in The Hobbit, Bilbo s first act having The One Ring was piety.A small noble deed that would define the fate of the whole Middle Earth.That makes you think about it Each action has a consequence Maybe you won t be able to realize the consequence, but it s clear that you have to think about your actions, since you never know that something that you may consider irrelevant, even correct, it may lead to consequences with epic importance OWYN GALADRIEL, MIDDLE EARTH GIRL POWER Again, I won t spoil anything, I only can say that one of my favorite female characters in the saga is owyn, along with Galadriel Their paths are separate, they are different kind of female characters, but definitely, they proved their own importance and vital roles in this story plenty of male characters.Galadriel s role was centered mainly in the first part but you ll find her here again , The Fellowship of the Ring, and you can t doubt that she, along with Elrond one of my favorite male characters , both are of the most powerful beings in the Middle Earth, where their existence over there, defined the beginning and the end of the Third Age owyn was introduced on the second part, The Two Towers, but it s on the third and final part, The Return of the King, where she plays her vital role in an age where men were the ones usually in the battlefields.It s clear that a predilect theme of J.R.R Tolkien was to show that while wars are things to avoid if possible, if the war is inescapable, it s short sighted and close minded not considering the worth and courage of the unlikely beings Hobbits, women and including them into the ranks of the defending army Since many times the tall and strong men don t think that people of small height or from the weaker sex , can be valuable during a war But you can testify that in The War of the Ring , four Hobbits and a woman, changed the course of it, during epic moments of impossible odds LEGACY OF THE LORD OF THE RINGS The saga ends here, Return of the King, at least the main story, because certainly you can find a LOTof tales in the other books by Tolkien set in the Middle Earth.And it s indisputable the legacy caused by this story.Since ALL the following novels and book series in the genre of epic fantasy are inspired and or influenced due the publication of Lord of the Rings, but its impact isn t limited to this literary genre, since if you know what to look or watching carefully you ll find plots, elements, concepts, etc of this story in other novels of different genres, in films, in TV, etc Once you woud be aware of this story, you keep noticing here and there, the influence and impact of it Not matter if you like Lord of the Rings or not, you have to thank anyway, since the imagination and creativity in the minds of artists in the whole world, in all kind of art fields, were never the same after the publication of this work They got better.Thank you, Tolkien

and Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli as the suspense builds towards the final battle Gandalf has a hard time explaining the death of Boromir to the grieving father Denethor who will have a sad ending himself as things turn out Definitely, Denethor was one of the characters I liked the least Denethor s daughter Eowyn falls in love with Aragorn who is, unfortunately, already betrothed to an Elf princess and thus not fair game but wishes to fight Shall I always be chosen she said bitterly Shall I always be left behind when Riders depart, to mind the house while they win renown, and find food and beds when they return What do you fear, lady Aragorn asked A cage, she said To stay behind bars, until use and old age accept them, and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire p 767 note that the page numbers are from the single volume edition of LOTR This is perhaps an attempt by Tolkien to excuse his male centric story and express his sympathy for the cause of women s equality Indeed, one of the greatest moments in the entire trilogy is when Eowyn rises above her station and becomes the unique female hero of the saga as she strikes down the Night King, But no living man am I You look upon a woman It was truly a fantastic and inspiring moment Galadriel was an interesting female character too, but other than glowing in the dark and handing out cool swag to passers by, she was just a pretty hood ornament compared to Eowyn.I found it curious how they call Sauron The Nameless One , notably a source for Rowling having various HP characters use this moniker for her bad guy Unforgettable as well as moments of suspense when the Lord of the Nazg l seems about to strike Gandalf as Rohan arrives on the theatre of battle changing the momentum p 811 After the battle, there is a beautiful moment on the city walls as Eowyn and Faramir are united just as the Ring is destroyed It is as scene of romance and yet Tolkien pulls it off without it becoming too sentimental and yet remaining epic Fantastic writing neither wind, nor voice, nor bird call, nor rustle of leaf, nor their own breath could be heard the very beating of their hearts was stilled Time halted And as they stood so, their hands met and clasped, though they did not know it And still they waited for they knew what not.A sounds like a sign went up from all the lands about them, and their hearts beat suddenly again p 945 After the battle, there is another nature moment where we see a seedling of Galathilion, Eldest of Trees already it had put forth young leaves long and shapely, dark above and silver beneath, and upon its slender crown it bore one small cluster of flowers whose white petals shone like the sunlit snow p 950 Few writers capture a love of nature with such poetic precision as Tolkien.On the trip back, as folks peel off like leaves of corn, we cross a broken but not toothless as shall be seen Saruman in a comic scene p 960 961 But, when all that is left are the hobbits, they arrive to find the Shire changed and under the terror of a violent band of ruffians the remnants of the armies of Saruman and Sauron Symbolically, I believe that the Scouring of the Shire represents both the lost idealism in Europe after World War I as well as the horrors of World War II which was raging as he was writing the original text He edited the final draft for years before finally publishing in 1955 as well as the damage to the idyllic environment by the Industrialization of England in the XIXe century Perhaps, Tolkien couldn t resist describing a last piece of bitter loss before ending his epic with the fantastically beautiful sending off from Grey Haven They ve cut it down cried Sam They ve cut down the Party Tree He pointed to where the tree had stood unde which Bilbo had made his Farewell Speech It was lying lopped and dead in the field As if this was the last straw Sam burst into tears p 993 Personally, I think that this was a result of Tolkien s personal disillusionment during the Battle of Britain seeing bombs falling from the sky hitting buildings and trees he loved in and around Oxford Beautifully, however, Sam quickly turns his frown upside down and sets out to rebuild what is left of the Shire We then get one last ride together as Elrond, Galadriel, Frodo, Bilbo and Frodo all ride off on boats literally into the sunset in probably the most beautiful literary sendoff that I have ever read p 1006 1008 The Third Age was over, and the Days of the Ring were passed, and an end was come of the story and song of those times The Elves were leaving Middle Earth for good an image and homage to our childhood dreams retreating into our memory as we become adults and shed our infancy Sam, arriving to his house with his wife Rose, firmly rooted in his earthly life ends the book thus He drew a deep breath Well, I m back, he said.LOTR is hard to summarize in words because all of it is so over the top, so epic, and so deeply influential on all fantasy literature in the seven decades since it was written We are all highly indebuted to Tolkien for his beautiful and youthful text If only we had all collectively paidattention to his ecological message and preserved our environment to the same degree that we extended his storytelling legacy Fino s Tolkien Reviews The HobbitThe Fellowship of the Ring LOTR 1 The Two Towers
