In the book TTT the story is split in thirds: Frod and Sams' doings, Merry and Pippins', and Aragorn, Gimli, and Legolas'.As for Aragorn, I think he was involved a bit too much in TTT than was necessary. There wasn`t as much as Frodo in TTT as I would have expected. If someone hadn`t seen FOTR, or they hadn`t found out or knew anything about FOTR, I think they would have thought the main character in TTT would be Aragorn.
In the book LotR, Gondor has been without a king for hundreds if not thousands of years, and when Aragorn accepts the crown, he brings the return of the kingship back to the land.The film ROTK, is the king Aragorn? If he is, then where does he return from and where does he go back to?
I agree with you that there was to much of Aragorn, like he was the main character. It should be Frodo.
However I have to agrree that reading the book is the best advice one can give. There is so much more in the books than in the movies. The books are not just amazing they are magical, and transport you to another world where you never want to leave.The great thing about the Lotr trilogy is that there is no clearly defined main character. it skips about between the entire fellowship, though of course it has to be said that it is mainly the tale of Aragorn and Frodo. But there is such a huge supporting cast that it doesn't work like a traditional book/movie with one guy doing all the cool stuff,
I think PJ drew attention to Aragorn by adding extra scenes that include him. The scene where he falls off the cliff, that wasn`t in the book, well that was what I was told.
