Does anyone else wish we had Tolkien's six titles?! Can't Post

The Ring Sets Out, The Ring Goes South, The Treason of Isengard, The Ring Goes East, The War of the Ring, and The End of the Third Age?

Although I am not a major fan of the "The Ring..." titles, I still appreciate "The Treason of Isengard", "The War of the Ring" and "The End of the Third Age" very much.

For the three volume editions I would have at least preferred "The War of the Ring" over "The Return of the King".

"The Two Towers" would be fine for me, if it would be clearly stated to be Barad-dûr and Orthanc. I think the movies did well in deciding on that... some of the things Tolkien discusses seem really weird to me, as many of them figure in TTT but do not really play a major role. "The Treason of Isengard" would not have been bad for that one either, but with the shortcoming of not really referring to Frodo's storyline.

Any thoughts? :)


(On a different note: I HATE the translation "Die Gefährten" (literally: The Companions) for the German version of FotR. "Die Gemeinschaft des Ringes" would have been just wonderful. I also do not like the use of "Wiederkehr" instead of "Rückkehr" for the "Return" in RotK.)
