Want to know why Rosie told Sam she had been expecting him since the Spring? The answer is here, in the Epilogue, which was not published in RotK because Tolkien's friends all yelled at him until he agreed to drop it.

SPOILER FOLLOWS:

Because on March 25, she sensed the fall of Sauron as it happened! At the same time that the people of Minas Tirith "sang for the joy that welled up in their hearts from what source they could not tell."

That should convince you, if you are the right kind of Tolkienist, that you have to have this book.

Didn't read the whole thing in detail, but this volume is worth it for the Notion Club Papers alone. A linguistic problem solving novella? Sign me up! ( )

9th volume in Christopher's books on the History of the Writing of Middle Earth. This being the last of the 4 that are about The Lord of the Rings. The material within combines the notes on book 6 of LotR, from the Tower of Cirith Ungol to an appendice Tolkien wrote of a conversation between Sam and a 15yr old Elanor, concerning the fates of the other members of the Fellowship. Added to this are the Notion Club papers, a fanciful deviation of Tolkien's that imagined members of Oxford discussing visions of the fall of Numenor and the Adunaic language. The last third concerns itself with what there can be known of the Adunaic language, especially considering that Tolkien abruptly stopped work on it when he got back to Sam and Frodo in Mordor. Worth the read, if you've read the others. There can be found some interesting Anglo-Saxon style storytelling which I found intense and poetic, near the end of the Notion Club section. And I did enjoy reading the Scouring of the Shire where Frodo is the champion, even though it totally doesn't fit the actual book.

The end of the story of the writing of The Lord of the Rings, including Tolkien's attempts to plot out the very end of the story - Gollum always had a role in the destruction of the Ring, but exactly what that was took some time to work out; but Saruman only gradually emerged as the villain in The Scouring of the Shire, and a postscript of Sam and Rose and their children twenty years on was dropped on the advice of Tolkien's beta readers (I wonder if whether J.K. Rowling was given the same advice about the end of the Harry Potter series; if so, she ignored it).

The book also includes drafts of an unpublished novel called The Notion Club Papers, written in the mid-1940s, in which a club of academics - in 1987! - listens to one of their number who has uncovered, through his dreams, another variation on the story of Eärendil and the fall of Númenor which was one of the earliest elements of Tolkien's mythos and which he never quite got right. What's interesting about The Notion Club Papers is that it clarifies the reason for part of the failure: the characterisation is all in the framing narrative, and the epic mythos all in the Númenor bits without really much in the way of interesting personal glimpses. What Tolkine managed in The Hobbit and particularly in The Lord of the Rings was to unite the epic and the personal, but it was only after long years of effort and rewriting, and I don't think either half of The Notion Papers was really salvageable. Still, it's interesting to map the roads not travelled. ( )

Sauron Defeated also includes The Notion Club Papers (a time-travel story related to Númenor), a draft of the Drowning of Anadûnê and the only extant account of the Adûnaic language. However, some paperback editions, entitled in this case The End of the Third Age, include only The Lord of the Rings material, being only a third of the original edition.
