Plot
Frodo and Sam continue their journey to Mordor while Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli are off chasing the orcs that stole Merry and Pippen, (little did they know Merry and Pippen were on their own adventure as well!) Frodo and Sam capture the creature Gollum and make him their guide who is to take them to the black gate of Mordor, or will he? Meanwhile saruman the white plans to kill all the men of middle earth and acts on that plan! Will the story end happily? Only you can find out.

I love how this book can creep you out! It's crazy, I mean you'll be reading and cold shiver will go down your spine or you'll jump mid sentence. This is a creepy line near the end of the book: "For long now she has been hungry...but nothing of this evil which they had stirred up against them did poor Sam know!" I also love the action in this story here's an excerpt from my favorite chapter Helms Deep: An axe swung and swept back, two orcs fell headless, the others fled. The final strongpoint in this novel is in the descriptions of the landscapes, characters, and other things. Here is a description of and Ent's hand: "A large knob-knuckled hand was laid on each of their shoulders."
