    One thought on “The Ring Goes East”

    1. I don't dish out five stars lightly But shit, I've got naught bad to say. I've been sucked into this world and 6 books isn't enough. I'm on the 5th and I don't want it to end anytime. All that is gold does not glitter Not all those who wander are lost.The old that is strong does not wither Deep roots are not reached by the frost #Bars

    2. Ahh this one :)I think that the first time I read the Lord of the Rings, this was one of my least favorite parts. But this time around I am loving it! This is story of what happened to Frodo and Sam after they ran away from the Fellowship - while Aragorn and co. were gallivanting around Rohan and fighting Sauraman and his orcish armies.I think its awesome to see that neither Frodo nor Sam have any real clue about surviving on their own - they struggle along in the harsh terrain but are constantl [...]

    3. I like Frodo and Sam, but Gollum steals the show. Frodo really is a good, kind and just master, and Sam a loyal servant. Gollum, on the other hand, is sneaky, pitiful, tortured, cunning and the greatest character in the book, if by great you read interesting, a clever invention. Frodo and Sam are both so good and kind that what this book needs is Gollum's cunning. Can he be trusted or not? Faramir is anothert showstealer, necessarily, but a lovely guy. Just, thoughtful, kind and honest. I see wh [...]

    4. Even though this has taken me nearly a year to read, I really liked it. I, however, much preferred following Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli than Frodo, Sam, and Smeagol. The only thing is I'm not sure what Tolkien's trying to get at with the Southerons. They didn't seem to have any real purpose in the story so.k what to make of it.

    5. The strength of this part of the story is in the character development and tension created in the relationships between Gollum, Sam, and Frodo. When this is done well, this book is fantastic. In the first book of this second volume of the trilogy, I missed the presence of Frodo and Sam. I was surprised to find that even without them, it had been my favourite so far.Surprised I was with this book that, with Sam and Frodo present and the ultimate concern or the narrative, I felt less tension and i [...]

    6. Frodo and Sam leave the Fellowship and continue their journey towards Mordor. Their paths cross with Gollum who leads them there directly into a trap. In the movie trilogy the different plots were mixed but here they are kept strictly separately (nothing about the rest of Fellowship here). This makes the plot easier to follow but on the other end you can't wait to get through the next book to continue with current story - this could create an endless loop if the books would not end at some point [...]

    7. I really enjoyed reading about the adventure of Frodo and Sam on the main quest, with their treacherous 'guide', Gollum. This is supposed to be what is happening in the meantime whilst Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas are off gallivanting. I really liked becoming used to how Frodo and Sam are around each other and how Sam would do anything to protect his master, as we see in Shelob's Lair, but I was a bit confused at the way things were worded by Sam. The way he expresses his devoted love towards Frod [...]

    8. I read this book because it is the continuation of a series I am reading at the moment and because I enjoyed the previous books. The category this book completes is a fantasy book.The parts I liked about this book is that it is building up to the final climax of the story very well and in an in-depth and easy to follow way. As well as that it manages to keep hold and develop on the storyline in a very nice way that means if you have read the previous books it is very easy and enjoyable to read.T [...]

    9. The Ring Goes East was all about Sam and Frodo and Smeagol who was eager to be their guide. Without the gollums help I don't think Frodo and Sam would've made it past the gates of Mordor. Smeagol knew another way in although nonetheless treacherous. I dare say without Smeagol it wouldn't have been as exciting and adventurous either. Anyhow by the end Frodo was caught in the enemy's snare and was hauled away and luck would have it that at least Sam had the ring .

    10. This is probably my least favourite of the series so far, mostly because I think that Frodo and Sam's story is a little slow. I understand why it is so, reflecting the journey that they are struggling through but this literally took months to read despite it being a short book. I did however love the ending and the introduction of Gollum and am excited to carry on with the series.

    11. I wish I had gotten these novels in this exact box set (in large print writing if possible). They seem much more manageable reads as a set of 6/7 than as one large volume (what I own now) or three novels even. As much as it's the same story the large daunting read is what stopped me time and time again.

    12. My least favourite of the LotR books so far; I don't think Sam and Frodo are compelling enough protagonists to hold a book on their own, though there are shining moments, particularly in the final third involving Shelob and Gollum's true colours.

    13. Frodo and Sam's adventure continues, aided by Gollum. As Mordor looms into view, Frodo perceives the grimness which lies ahead
