Ich bestellte mir dieses Buch, obwohl noch keine Rezensionen dafür vorhanden waren. Ich bereue den Kauf nicht!
Über die Geschichte muss man, glaube ich, nicht viel sagen. In diesem Buch findet die epische Geschichte des Herrn der Ringe ein würdiges Ende.

Meine Hauptsorge beim Kauf des Buches war die Englische Sprache, da ich befürchtete, die Sprache wäre zu kompliziert für meine (bescheidenen) Englischkenntnisse, doch dies erwies sich als falsch. Das Englisch ist gut zu verstehen, an den etwas altertümlichen Stil gewöhnt man sich nach einigen Absätzen.

Besonders hervorzuheben sind die wunderschönen Illustrationen von Alan Lee. Diese kommen ca. alle 20 bis 30 Seiten daher, oft auch Doppelseitig. Sie bieten einen schönen und phantasieanregenden Einblick nach Mittelerde.

Die Verarbeitung des Buches ist sehr gut, die Seiten sind fest gebunden, aber auch nicht zu fest.

Alles in allem spreche ich eine eindeutige Kaufempfehlung für dieses Buch aus.

The Return of the King is the final part of The Lord of the Rings. In this last part the feeling of good versus evil reaches its pinnacle in LOTR. Tolkien gave incredible detail describing the War of the Ring, as it spanned several chapters. All of the characters are developed further, and for most of the TROTK, the story remains a two way split. TROTK has an amazing conclusion, and that is partly bad. Upon finishing the novel, I was sad that it was over, and I didn't want it to be over, because Middle-Earth is a great place to get lost in. You go on the journey that the Fellowship undertook, and feel everything that each member of the party felt. This is possible because throughout LOTR, Tolkien wrote vivid passages describing the regions of Middle-Earth, the characters, and what they were thinking. I read TROTK more slowly, because I wanted to stay longer than what the novel would allow. The four hobbits of the Fellowship become harden warriors, a trait that was virtually absent from their kind. Even though the novel finally came to a complete finish, it felt like it left room for more. It's to bad that there is no direct sequel, and while it answers most of the questions left from the end of The Hobbit, the reader can come up with plenty more questions upon finishing LOTR. Professor Tolkien did a work that was unexpected in its depth. He invented several REAL languages and writing systems, a complete history to back the novel, and created a wonderful world filled with diverse races and environments. Some fantasy authors may have tried to reach Tolkien's level in fantasy literature, but I am certain the The Lord of the Rings will never be duplicated. The Return of the King stands as the incredible conclusion of the greatest epic ever written. My only regret was that it ended.

Of Tolkien's well-known quartet of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King is the best. The suspense builds as the war comes to its climax. In the West, all efforts are put towards defending the city of Gondor, chief city in Middle-earth, and main defense against Mordor. In Mordor, Sam continues to help Frodo towards Mount Doom, where the Ring can be destroyed. But the closer they get, the weaker Frodo becomes, and the stronger the power of the Ring becomes. Every scene is beautifully written, and even with all the action, the characters still take center stage. The writing is almost cinematic; is feels that real. It's a novel that scares you, grips you, makes you laugh and cry. One of the best novels ever written. After the climax, you begin reading more slowly. Not because it is not interesting, not because it moves slowly by its own nature. You read more slowly because you do not want it to end. After reading these novels, you will not want to leave this world behind. I have one complaint and one complaint only about this book: it is too short. If you die without reading The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, you have missed the greatest joy in literature. Do yourself a favor: read these books.

Hierbei handelt es sich um die Hörbuchversion des dritten Buchs (The Return of the King, unterteilt in Buch 5 und 6) von Tolkiens Lord of the Rings, wie der Titel schon besagt. Es ist eine digital aufgearbeitete Fassung der Aufnahmen von 1990.

Die Aufnahmen sind ausschließlich Originaltext, es ist nicht gekürzt worden. Zusätzlich findet man aber im Anschluss den Prolog des Lord of the Rings. Dieser ist vom Anfang an das Ende geschoben worden.

Die beiliegenden Verzeichnisse des jeweiligen CD-Inhalts sind sehr nützlich, um sich Stellen zu merken und sie schnell wieder oder überhaupt finden zu können.

Zur Stimme von Rob Inglis sei gesagt, dass er nur einen leichten Akzent hat. Das auffälligste dürfte sein rollendes „R“ sein. Störend wird sein Akzent nie, auch wenn er bestimmte Personen mit anderer Stimmlage und Betonung ließt. Es wird immer sehr deutlich gelesen.

Sein Lesestil führt aber dazu, dass selbst „aufregende Stellen“ in „nur mäßig aufgeregter“ Stimme gelesen werden. Hierbei handelt es sich eben auch um kein Hörspiel, sondern um ein Hörbuch. Wenn man seinen Kindern ein Buch vorließt, würde man es wohl ähnlich handhaben, manche Hörer mag es aber stören.

Nicht störend und sicher auch nachvollziehbar ist, dass hin und wieder Personen mit einer „falschen“ Stimmlage gelesen werden. Dennoch ein Abzug. Auch wechselt hin und wieder die Stimmlage des Erzählers. Es handelt sich wohl um verschiedene Aufnahmen. Auch nicht so elegant, aber wohl nur schwer anders zu lösen. Das kommt in jedem Buch vor, besonders ist es mir im ersten aufgefallen.

Im Allgemeinen sei gesagt, dass man die Stimme und Leseweise erst Probehören sollte. Es mag sein, dass man sich an der Stimme stört, was bei so vielen Stunden das Vergnügen sicher trüben wird. Des Weiteren handelt es sich um keine billige Investition. Schade, wenn es sich um eine handelt, die man später bereut.

Für mich hat sich jedes Buch auch in seiner Hörbuchfassung gelohnt. Es ist schön die englische Sprache auch wieder hören zu können. Wenn die Augen müde sind, aber man doch noch nicht zu müde, so bietet jedes der drei Hörbücher eine großartige Beschäftigung in Form von vergnüglichem Folgen der Geschichte.

Im Übrigen kann man auch einige Stunden auf einem IPod oder vergleichbaren Geräten mitnehmen, so spart man sich das CD-Wechseln nach etwa jeder Stunde. Für Käufer mit Audio-DVD-Spielern mag das eine Alternative sein...

Die CDs und ihre Boxen zu schonen lohnt sich auch alle mal, da sowohl als auch wunderschön illustriert worden sind.

Trotz der erwähnten Mängel 5 Sterne. Es handelt sich um ein hervorragendes Produkt.

This is the third time I have visited the magical world of J.R.R Tolkien's unique Middle-Earth, and I'm sure it won't be the last time! The Return of the King is the final, and in my opinion the best, book in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. With just as much action, adventure, suspense and romance as the first two, the final episode breaks all bounds with not a dull moment in its entirety.
The book resumes the story of the remnants of what was the Fellowship of the Ring, now the Grey Company. Each have gone their separate ways, and Frodo and Samwise have journeyed to Mordor to fulfill their dreadful task of destroying the Ring. Peregrin and Gandalf set out for the slowly dying city of Minas Tirith to inform its Steward, Denethor, of the death of his son Boromir, who died protecting Peregrin and Meriadoc. While Gandalf and Pippin ride East, Merry, with the rest of the Fellowship and the host of Rohan, rides to Edoras to consult the lady Eowyn, daughter of the king of Rohan. However, a new path is revealed to Aragorn and the Grey Company: The Paths of the Dead. All paths hold danger for each company, though Frodo's is the gravest. With Sauron's Eye upon him constantly, the Ring weighs heavier on his conscience than ever, slowly working its evil on his heart. Having lost all hope, Frodo succumbs to despair and even Sam's optimism cannot lift the heavy burden from his mind.
Following the end of the novel, there are the Appendices, which describe the history of each ancient race and its background. Including some excerpts from Bilbo's Red Book, they are a great help in understanding Middle-Earth as a whole.
I could not stop reading this book once I started, and I believe the reader will find it just as addictive. Tolkien combines all of the human weaknesses and strengths into this magnificent story of betrayal, temptation, courage, love, hate and valor. Journey with Frodo and Sam as all of the Races join in the fight that will seal the fate of Middle-Earth and end the Third Age. I guarantee it will be an adventure you will never forget.
I also recommend that you read The Price of Immortality written by C.M. Whitlock, it is a great story and one you are sure to remember

The Lord of the Rings is the best fantasy story of all time! Tolkien is a master storyteller, and his secondary world of Middle Earth is so true, and so beautifully described. The Lord of the Rings is published in three volumes [Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King], but it is really one story told straight through; to appreciate part of it, you must read all three books. The Hobbit is considered a prelude to the trilogy, and is more accessable to younger readers. [It is much lighter in tone, and is of course much shorter, only being 287 pages long.] The Return of the King is wonderful, containing the climax and the end of the Third Age of Middle Earth. While some conclusions are predictable, other twists in the plot are rather unpredictable. If you haven't read these stories, be wary of reviews that reveal the plot. Knowing what happens is empty compared to knowing how it happens, and hearing the story through the words of a master storyteller. The entire work fits together so well, Tolkien's dedication to perfecting the story is evident. For those readers who feel disappointed that the story is ended, and want to read more about Middle Earth, many of Tolkein's writings were published after his death, such as the Silmarillion. One warning though; no hobbits. These stories deal with the First and Second Age, being tales of Valinor, Elven kingdoms [Gondolin, Nargothrond, Doriath] in Middle Earth, and the days of Numenor before its fall. I highly recommend anything Tolkien has written, because his stories have such deep meanings, and his fantasy world is so well developed to make almost any other appear shallow. Because he was writing one story, some readers may find The Fellowship a bit slow in getting started, but The Return of the King more than makes up for it. Stick with it; this is a quest you will never forget, and you may find yourself wishing to visit these enchanted, almost real lands...

One of the reasons I liked this book is because it gives a great veiw of the the bad guy(a really,really bad guy.I'm thinking Satan here)Bad guys are my weakness.I feel that if the bad guys aren't believable,the book won't hold together.(makes you kinda wonder what would have happened if Sauron got the Ring.I am now thinking "a stream of evil-looking red light zaps into the sky,a hurricane-thingy forms above Mount Doom complete with lightening,there is maniacal laughter...but,I'll let you draw your own conclusions)The beginning of the book is a tad boring,but don't lose faith,keep reading!Anyway in the last book,Frodo is captured by "Big baddie's"(Sauron's)minions.Sam goes to find him,into MORDOR!!!Help!Meanwhile,Gandalf and co. fight off Sauron's leiutenant,the Witch-King of somewhere,a real medusa(hideous)and Pippin wounds hims with an enchanted knife,and SPALT!!He's dead.After that,they go to Mount Doom and do,oh you know what,so I not sayin'.Oh,and a reveiwer from Canada wrote that Sauron shouldn't of been killed because "thats what gives the book its meaning",well,I have two things to say about that:#1 the third age(and the series)is coming to a close.The era of magic is over(this is when the world,or Middle-Earth,comes into the Middle Ages).And #2There in nothing in a book that compares(or that the reader has been waiting for more)to the climactic battle,in which,the villin is destroyed in a BIG bang.Anyway,I wish Tolken was still around to write more,as I still have questions: what happened to the Blue Wizards?What did Gandalf do before he met Bilbo?What..........(enough,already!)

I bought the LOTR book set this summer and read the whole set, including the Hobbit, in about a month I liked it so much. I'm reading it again and I'm telling you that no other book(s) can compare to these books. J.R.R. Tolkien is the best book writter that I have ever read books by. Tolkien is an authentic book writer.The main thing about it is about a majical but evil ring that has to be destroyed in the deapths of Mount Doom. The main character is Frodo. He takes the ring to M.D. to be destroyed. My favorite character is Samwise Gamgee (known as Sam). He willingly goes with Frodo on to their quest. Called by Elrond, Sam is the only one doomed to go on this quest. No to mention that it was Sam who took care of the ring when Frodo was kidnapped by the Orcs. My next favorite character is the OLD, WISE,Hobbit, Bilbo. It was because of him that the whole quest started. Bilbo found the ring in "The Hobbit". Tolkien must have been a genious to be able to think of a whole new world, including the characters, and still be able to keep the story down to earth.In the beggining of the story Frodo and Sam were not alone on the horrable quest. These books are full of excitement, adventure, sadness, death and feast and happy meetings with old friends. This is a MUST READ book set. I reckomend this books to all who would want to read them.

Zum Inhalt sag ich erst gar nichts. Wer die Geschichte noch nicht kennt sollte ohne zu überlegen zuschlagen und sich von Tolkien verzaubern lassen.

Ich besaß die Geschichte bereits und mein Reiz lag allein in der Originalsprache. Besonders am Anfang ist es dabei etwas zäh die Auenlandbeschreibungen zu lesen, da man sich jetzt noch durch Tolkiens Englisch lesen muss. Tolkien greift dabei auf einen sehr großen Wortschatz mit teils altertümlichen Begriffen zurück. Die Sprache wird noch der Person bzw. den Regionen angepasst. Und somit merkt man schnell, dass es so noch mehr Spaß macht. Man muss sich halt an das Englisch gewöhnen, was definitiv nichts für Anfänger ist, aber dann würde man am liebsten ohne Unterbrechung lesen.

Zu den Büchern selbst lässt sich noch sagen, dass sie sowohl von außen als auch von innen sehr schön und sehr edel wirken. Zu den Coverbildern liegt auch immer eine Beschreibung bei.

The first time i read all four books (The Hobbit, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, The Return of the King) I could not put it down. An unexpected gift, it became pure magic for me. There were moments when I became so affected -- scared, and then triumphant. I was living the adventure of Frodo and the whole fellowship. It made the summer of '86 a coming-of-age moment for me, something unforgettable. The knowledge of the book was something i could hug to myself, a deep dark secret, a source of pleasure when the summer finally ended and I had to start junior high school.
When I was older and read it again, I was more critical. I didn't know why. I didn't want to be. But suddenly, Tolkien's words seemed too heavy to me, too ponderous. The metaphors were clearer, though. Still, it made me wish I never grew up.
