Verizon LTIE 1049 AM a googlecom observercom Tolkien has been a huge intluence on me and I love the way he ended Lord of the Rings It ends with victory but it's a ittersweet victory Frodo is never whole again and he goes away to the Undying Lands and the other people live their lives And the scouring of the Shire brilliant piece of work which I didn't understand when I was 13 years old Why is this here? The story's over? But every time I read it I understand the brilliance of that segment more and more All I can say is that's the kind of tone I will be aiming for Whether I achieve it or not that will be up to people like you and my readers to judge Jon’s ending Meme
