Hallelujah! The end has arrived.
Well, this marathon was fun. Sometimes frustrating, sometimes downright grueling, but mostly good fun.
I found The Return of the King to be worse than The Two Towers and about as good as The Fellowship of the Ring. It was somewhat silly in parts and astoundingly beautiful in others. And it just didn't want to end, did it?
As a whole, the trilogy is an astounding piece of work. It tells an epic story in a magnificent way, bringing JRR Tolkien's work to life with just as much love and dedication as Tolkien did in his hefty volumes. It deserves respect for its scope and ambition. And it has already become a classic.
