About the Book

Few novels of our time have gathered so large and loyal a following as J. R. R. Tolkien's masterpiece, "The Lord of the Rings."

"No imaginary world has been projected which is at once so multifarious and so true to its own inner laws...none so relevant to the actual human situation yet so free from allegory...Here are beauties which pierce like swords or burn like cold iron. Here is a book which will break your heart...good beyond hope." --C.S. Lewis, Time and Tide

For those who have not read Part One, The Fellowship of the Ring, the author has provided a synopsis of the story to this point. The Return of the King, the third and final volume, brings to a close his magnificent epic of Middle Earth.

A Statement From the Author About This American Edition
“This paperback edition, and no other, has been published with my consent and co-operation. Those who approve of courtesy (at least) to living authors will purchase it and no other.” --J.R.R. Tolkien
