Part 2 and 3 Part two... Spoiler Book III: Okay I loved the journey of Pippin and Merry with the ents. It was amazing.I can't wait to see how the movie will show the ents to look like. and When gimli and Legolas were playing in the battle I thought they seemed to be having a bit too much fun whilst in a battle but they were not in play and they triumphed all the same.(though I noticed they did not count the number of orcs slain in book five) Spoiler Book IV :Okay... OH mY Gawd! When Sam thought Frodo was dead I was like No way he can't be! If he was dead the story would be over. and then sam took the ring and I thought all was lost. oh and then I loved it when Sam heard the orcs describing him as an elf warrior. And then I was relieved cuz Frodo was alive. But I wish Sam hadn't given Frodo back the ring cuz you could tell Frodo did not want to part with it from the hold the ring had on him already. Part three... Spoiler Okay I found book VI the one I wished most to read to see Frodo and Samwise to the mointain and the destruction of the ring seemed more interesting then some distraction of a war. so...and then when they got to the mountain and Frodo said he claimed the ring as his own, again I thought all was lost. I find it ironic that it was gollum who was doomed to be doomed by the ring. poor miserable gollum it was his fault all the same but to think that Gollum saved all of middle earth gives me the shivers just thinkin of it. Spoiler Book V: I did not skip all of book five once i had finished reading the end of the ring itself I left that part of the story and went back to the battle of gondor. Merry and Pippen were so brave; in all thier size they deemed the most valiant warriors there. I mean going up against a Nazgul poor Merry could have died! of course there was that chance with Pippen when he killed the troll that fell ontop of him. The men were brave and so was gandalf and yet I think the hobbits did more than the men in a way. sure they were larger in numbers and fought the good fight but I still deem that the hobbits were the truer heros of the story not just becuase of the great deed of Frodo. Okay then I turned back to were I had left book six and I was up till 5:00 this morning reading it the ending was not quite what I expected of it and I was awake till 8:00 am at least cuz after that story I could not sleep. I have yet to read the Appendix but I find that I must read the books once more.
