I enjoyed all four books. The audible versions were so engaging. In the Two Towers I loved the battle at Isengard, the way the Ents helped bring down Sauron and took back what was theirs.
My favorite character was Gandolf. He always rallied the troops, kept everyone on task and found a way to be inspiring to all the characters; motivating them to continue even in the face of despair.
The Ent battle of Isengard.
The only thing I found somewhat distracting were the Ent songs, this part really could have shorter.
Absolutely! I've already recommended it to my son who is a J R R Tolkein fan already.
His multi-varied voice range, both in giving other characters and in singing the various ballads of the plot, give the audible version almost a "drama" character.
No, my stoic personality prevents that.
More perfection in story and narration. I never thought a audio book could add any vivid imagery better than reading the book. The movies were wonderful, but of course they adjusted and fiddled with the story ,places,timeline,and events to suit. This reading never missed a step.
Everyone knows the story so that's not the selling point but the narration really makes it come alive. Nicely done!
I loved Robert's delivery. I can imagine he's a Tolkien fan himself.
He was very careful to truly depict each character's voice, even when switching rapidly.

The richness of the characters. The way each "race" has foibles and strengths.
I don't love Rob Inglis's voice for this triilogy. Got over it as time went on.
The reader does a great job with this book, bringing out the characters. I love it and would listen again just to learn more of the story.
Because this trilogy, along with the Hobbit is so well known it is almost impossible to answer this question. I have read the books silently and out loud to my children and bought the books in audible because I was told the narrator was outstanding. He is.
I recommend this series to all who love the books.
Among the top 5. Tolkien's works are always epic.
He is consistent, and differentiates between characters well. I would listen to more books narrated by Mr. Inglis.
No - this is a heavy and detailed book that takes some time to listen to.
So far, "The Two Towers" is better than the first book in the series. I still need to read the final novel in the trilogy, but I really liked the journey up to the towers. In the Fellowship of the Ring, it felt like I was listening to a musical because of the constant singing to tell the tale. In this addition, it felt like more of a true audio book with the excellent reading from Rob Inglis. I'm glad that the publisher of the Tolkien series kept with same voice to narrate the story. I'm actually looking forward to reading The Return of the King, even though I always catch bits and pieces every year on tv.
