The Return of the King  - J.R.R. Tolkien

I'm sooooooo close to the end!! I'm really excited too - I think ROTK may be my least favorite of the LOTR. This ending of endings is particularly strange, though I get why it's so long - there are MANY threads to wrap up.

 

I'm conflicted on the Scouring of the Shire and whether the movie did a good or bad thing about removing.

 

Favorite thing the movie changed? Least favorite?

 

My choices: I liked how the movie streamlined the story in general.

 

Least favorite: No Glorfindel, Elladan and Elrohir.
