And we continue in the saga of Mr. Frodo Baggins and the ring of doom. I liked how this began right where the last one left off. It had no beginning or no end, and its got a lot going on in it.
For one, this is when Frodo and Sam split from the group, so you're following their journey and then the one of the rest of the group. There have been some people that disliked this, but I think where the segments ended were in good places and it was overall done well.
In this volume, you get a better look at several of the characters and are introduced to some new ones. There's the epic battle of Helm's Deep, and the last march of the Ents, who I LOVED. Treebeard is one of my favorite characters in the series thusfar.
I love this series thusfar, its a classic, that everyone needs to read. I give this book, like The Fellowship of the Ring, 5 out of 5 stars.
