    The Two Towers is the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic saga, The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship has been forced to split up. Frodo and Sam must continue alone towards Mount Doom, where the One Ring must be destroyed. Meanwhile, at Helm’s Deep and Isengard, the first great battles of the War of the Ring take shape. In this splendid, unabridged audio production of Tolkien’s great work, all the inhabitants of a magical universe - hobbits, elves, and wizards - spring to life. Rob Inglis’ narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I've already recommended it to my son who is a J R R Tolkein fan already.


    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, my stoic personality prevents that.

    The Fellowship of the Ring, the first volume in the trilogy, tells of the fateful power of the One Ring. It begins a magnificent tale of adventure that will plunge the members of the Fellowship of the Ring into a perilous quest and set the stage for the ultimate clash between the powers of good and evil.

    Excellent job done with a classic book. I can't wait to complete the Trilogy. Would definitely recommend it to those who don't have the time to be stationary and read.
