The Return of the King is the towering climax to J. R. R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron.
In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director. This recording also contains Tolkien’s preface to the trilogy, including a prior history of the ring, and shire habitat, history, and folkways.

A fine finish for one of the best trilogies ever. The ending recaps provide depth and warmth to what we have seen in the cinema. I enjoyed all three.
I'm glad they included the appendices. The performance is fantastic, the story is good. Probably the best of the trilogy.
This book was really good. I actually like this one the best because it wraps things up. The narrator was really good and made you really get into the characters. A classic book and series that everyone should read and/or listen to at least once :)
I watched the Trilogy many times before listening to the book. Well worth the purchase. I was able to fill in the blanks, making these three stories new to me again.
very exciting reading of all 4 books and a great touch with all the history's at the end of the reading.
