How can I rate part 2 of this trilogy any less or greater than the others. Fantastic story and read well.
The hobbits escape and meeting TreeBeard
I love how he voices Samwise.
The songs are the only part I prefer to skip. Just not my thing.
The choice of Rob Inglis to narrate the book was perfect. He sings the songs well, and it is easy to follow as characters change, and as the plot twists and turns.
The story is a timeless tale that I enjoyed reading when I was younger, but never finished. I really enjoyed listening to the exciting parts without all the graphic violence, many of todays writings have. It kept my interest throughout the entire book.
Sam - He went from a servant, almost a simpleton to a hero in the story. The way Rob portrayed this character was spot on. The development was perfect.
I highly recommend the entire series. I will probably listen to it again in a year or so.
Intriguing, humorous, exciting
Peregrin "Pippin" Took because he's the humor relief.
I love every part in the book.
Once again I love every part.
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 Journey Continues
Mentor Coach, Author, Coach Trainer
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.
