The Return of the King, Part 2

The Return of the King, Part 2

In which we conclude our discussion of The Lord of the Rings by talking about Book 6, the final part of The Return of the King and of the series as a whole. Tolkien manages to not kill off any of the major good guys … and yet there’s a real price to be paid for standing up to the ultimate evil. Our heroes talk a lot about that, and everything that happens after the ring is destroyed, and why it had to happen the way it did. Also they give summary thoughts on the series, on favorite characters, favorite books, things like that. Yay!
