In the book The Lord of the Rings The Return of the King there have been many conflicts and plot twists that move the story along, as well as, make it interesting. Of these events, an example is during the siege of Gondor, shortly after the army of orcs sent by Sauron start their attack, the people of Gondor get angry at the sight of the dead being hurled through the air by the orcs. An example of a plot twist is during the siege of Gondor, Denethor the king, commits suicide by lighting himself on fire, because the last of his family, Faramir, is almost dead. Another event is later when Aragorn, Gandalf, Pipin, and multiple armies determined to fight against Sauron, are standing out side the black gate, (Morannon) when the mouth of Sauron (a messenger) tells them that Frodo is captured, and unless they surrender, and meet Sauron's terms Frodo will suffer for years before he dies. The effect of the mouth of Sauron trying to negotiate with them was, it brought grief to the friends of Frodo. Although this is an example of a conflict, it it also an example of a plot twist as well. The reason for this is because shortly after, Gandalf suddenly terrifies the messenger, who retreats from the blinding light that Gandalf caused. In conclusion in the book The Return of the King the conflicts and plot twists help move the story along.
