Another grueling journey that jumps to mind is that of Roland Deschain in Stephen King’s The Dark Tower series. King was inspired to write this series by The Lord of the Rings, and, like Frodo’s, Roland’s journey is fraught with challenges up until its very unexpected ending. Tolkien undoubtedly inspired numerous journey tales over the past few decades of fantasy fiction, including The Belgariad by David Eddings and The Sword of Shannara by Terry Brooks.
So as I embark on my next journey, let me know if there’s a favorite fictional journey that sticks in your mind.
