This story picks up where "Fellowship of the Ring", left off. The fellowship apparently divided in its direction and even thought the immediate purposes diverge and converge the urgency of getting the ring to Mordor is ever present. We are lucky in the fact that J. R. R. Tolkien will completely follow each participant's path from beginning to end. All the wars are covered in detail and the progress of the ring bearer is chronicled. New creatures and old vermin reveal themselves.
As with the Ramayana, we find that every creature has his/her function and that there is no black and white in this purpose. Frodo (Elijah Wood) alludes to this when he thinks of Gandalf, Aragorn, and Gollum. Even Gandalf tells not to hurt Gollum as he may play a larger role in the story that one could imagine.
