Frodo and Sam also died eventually. Just because they sailed to the Undying Lands doesn't mean they escaped The Fate of Men, which is death. Nobody in Arda's history managed to escape their race's "curse" except for Beren and Luthien who were given another life together. They most likely just got some more time.

They died peacefully after a full life, spending their last years with one of their best friends who is also one the most powerful and wealthy individuals in the(ir) world. I can hardly imagine a better way to pass away, I'm happy for them.

It's also possible that Frodo and Sam didn't die, since one needs to be immortal to gain entry to the Undying Lands, hence the name. They could've been made immortal.

The Undying Lands are called that because that's where elves and Gods live, not because it grants immortality. It's funny that you say this actually because when Sauron was captured by the Numenoreans, he told them the same thing, that being in the Undying Lands gives you immortality (this is a lie). The Numenoreans then tried to invade to seize everlasting life and were all promptly destroyed by the Gods for their arrogance.

Just want to make the point that the valar are closer to angels then Gods. Illuvatar is the only real God

The **** is all this? I don't remember seeing this in the films. Is this stuff in the books and just not in the films, or did I just forget? (I have them, but am yet to read them.)

All of the back story and god stuff is in the Silmarillion.

Honestly, I'm personally a much bigger fan of the Silmarillion and the Children of Húrin than the LotR books. They're both very different stories from what the Fellowship is all about, and are also much darker and more serious. And they're about elves and their great wars on evil. So that's great.

It is not an easy read, and only serious LotR fans should even attempt it. If you do, though, it's a fantastic read, covering a huge amount of lore from before the events of the more well-known books. It also helps explain the significance of some of the characters, like Elrond and Gandalf.

Well I read the Hobbit, and didn't like it, but I won't judge due to it being a children's book.
Started Fellowship and not liking it so far, but I'll keep reading to see how it goes.

Keep reading Fellowship of the Ring - it takes a while to pick up. If you finish it and don't like it, then to be honest I wouldn't continue the series, since all three books are equally good (or equally uninteresting, in your case). I definitely wouldn't recommend The Silmarillion if you didn't like The Hobbit, although if you do get into the series, The Children of Hurin is good.

I actually think I´ve read a letter by tolkien where he actually stated that Sam, Frodo, Bilbo and Gimli (who later-on also arrived at the undying Lands, in a boat from the grey havens (the last one that ever set of to Valinor, I think, not sure, tho) might have lived on. Not for all eternity, but at least for longer as they would have lived in middleearth, due to the "healthy atmosphere" (sorry, I don´t know a better word right now) there...Not sure, tho, I´d have to look it up, but most of my books aren´t with me right now...

And even if they died, I like to believe that all the heroes of the ring-war will be resecurrected in the Dagor Dagorath

It's called Valinor because the Valar live there, and its called the undying lands because Yavannas (a valar) power is flowing through all of Valinors plant life

questions to a person who obviously knows their ****;
why does Frodo leave?
Doesn't wearing one of those crystals that the elves wear give you immortality?
I had no idea there were gods in that universe. What are they like. Do they ever go to middle earth and change things?
Why doesn't technology in that universe change at all from the time of the first war with Sauron to the time of Frodo? Isn't it a 2,000 year span where they are stuck in the medieval era?

on Frodo leaving: being a ring-bearer is not just keeping the ring in a chain around your neck, it eats away at your soul until nothing is left and you turn into a ring-wraith. Frodo isn´t as ****** as Sméagol(Gollum) but he still wore the ring for quite awhile(he "owned" it for around 20 years) and that took away his love for his own life. During the period from Sarumans death till he leaves middle-earth, he continually became more and more distant from the people around him, even Sam, to a point where he realized that whatever life he was hoping for, when he set out from The Shire, would never happen. so him leaving isn't as much of a sad thing, as you might think, Valinor (the undying lands) holds for the ring-bearers a hope and a chance to put the ring-war behind them. i think ill stop now even if there's still things to be said

But the Gods can grant immortality and probably did in the case of Sam and Frodo for being their bitches for so many years

I love those two little "********" ! They remind me of Fred and George,but that's probably because she sorta based them of Merry and Pip.

Gimli and legolas went on adventures for themselves, in the mirkwood area. Tolkien didn`t explicitly say where they ended up.

I sometimes wonder, if the Undying lands actually exist in the LOTR world. Like, what if it doesn't, and elves have just been sailing down a river until they all fly down a waterfall and die, and no body knows about it because their are no survivors, and nobody wants to question the existence of the undying lands. So generation after generation of elves just plummet to their watery death because everyone assumes they're going to the "Undying Land". Just a thought. Elves fw they see waterfall.

The illusion of a paradise is more comforting than the knowledge of it's non-existence.
Hence why so many people believe in Heaven.

Elves have been there, Galadriel for example. They saw the light of the Two Trees and how they were destroyed ... there was a lot of stuff going on there in the first age. Also the Valar, kind of divine spirits, live there.
