The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

The Return of the King - JRR Tolkien - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of The Return of the King:

The end of the journey and the end (?) of evil.

My favorite JRR Tolkien quote from the book:

"I will not say; do not weep; for not all tears are an evil."

Questions to ponder while reading the book:

Do you have someone you can trust?

Can you succeed without friendship?

My review of The Return of the King:

The end of a long, long journey.

An epic story for the ages.

Tolkien is a master of description.
