The Return of the King is the towering climax to J.R.R. Tolkien’s trilogy that tells the saga of the hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Ring. In this concluding volume, Frodo and Sam make a terrible journey to the heart of the Land of the Shadow in a final reckoning with the power of Sauron.

In addition to narrating the prose passages, Rob Inglis sings the trilogy’s songs and poems a capella, using melodies composed by Inglis and Claudia Howard, the Recorded Books studio director. The 13th CD in this recording contains Tolkien’s preface to the trilogy, including a prior history of the ring, and shire habitat,
history, and folkways.

—Also includes The Annals of the Kings and Rulers, an appendix to the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

as with the previous two, this was phenomenal...the narrator is on another level, I could have literally just started over and not have been bored.

Great narrator does the Books Justice. However I’m quite annoyed that the cover art has been changed to that if Amazons ridiculous show. Isn’t it obvious that we are here for the books, and not you’re politically charged, expensive fan-fiction? Bug off!

The CD has everything that a good edition of the book would--Tolkien's Prefaces and the appendixes. As always, the narration is exemplary.
