Publisher's Summary

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.

©1983 Christopher R. Tolkien, Michael H.R.Tolkien, John F.R. Tolkien, and Priscilla M.A.R.Tolkien (P)1990 Recorded Books

    "The Slower of the Three"

    The Two Towers is my least favorite book of the trilogy but it's still important as it helps connect and define the relationships of the characters even more. Although most of the book consists of travels that takes days and descriptions of the nature surrounding the characters, it's still well written.

    "Favorite fantasy series"

    By far my favorite book in the LOTR series especially the Helm's Deep chapter, but not crazy about the narrator.

    Story
    "Do we really need this many hobbits???"

    In "The Hobbit" there is one hobbit and, honestly, that was plently. Then Tolkien went and put four hobbits, each one more whinny than the last, into the same novel. Golem is the only character I can relate too because he also hates hobbits. They are just nasties, fithlies halflings (who don't deserve half the story).

    "Fabulous production"

    Most readers are already familiar with the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the incredible talent of Tolkien is well known. I will simply speak to the audio presentation. The performance is simply wonderful. The reader captures every voice perfectly. It is an older production but the producers have cleaned it up very nicely and it can go toe to toe with anything I have ever listened too. This is a must have!

    "Gollum...Gollum..."

    The story is classic and has one of the best endings ever where I couldn't turn it off for the last 2 hours. The voice acting really brings it to life, especially Gollum, who sounds just as good as the movies, if not better. Great listen.

    "Starts strong but is rough to finish."
    Where does The Two Towers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    A great read. The first half of the book is amazing and full of action. The second half is almost all Frodo and Sam chapters, which can be dry reading.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Faramir is one of LOTR's most down to Middle-Earth characters.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    Consistent character voices. Clear expressive voice.
