The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien

As the War of the Rings builds in intensity and the dark minions of Sauron look to extend their evil influence over Middle-earth, Frodo and Sam edge ever closer to Mount Doom. Desperate to avoid the watchful eye of the Dark lord and the treacherous betrayal of Gollum, the two noble hobbits struggle through the Land of Shadow in an attempt to destroy the One Ring of Power and end Sauron's evil reign forever. From Goodreads.

The final book in the trilogy The Lord of The Rings. The part I miss in the film is the return of the hobbits to the Shire. It seems in the film that the Shire has not been affected by the war at all. This is not correct, I can see why it is not in the film but I miss it none the less as it is one of my favourite parts of the book.
If you have only seen the films, try reading the books. As with most books to film there is a lot more happening in the books.
