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.

I still love the word craft of Mr Tolkien.
It proudly stands against time and all the multimedia matters all around.
I highly recommend it to everyone wishing to get lost in a vast land of Fantasy.
Amazing narration of a Tolkien classic. I read the books years ago. Always liked them. I've seen the movies but movie adaptations are never as good as the books. This oral performance of The Two Towers fires up your minds eye and draws you right in to the middle of the adventure like no movie could ever do. Well worth the time... works good with dog walking, vacuuming and making dinner!
EXCELLENT JOB OF NARRATIVE. REALLY ENJOYED LISTENING TO THE STORY. ALMOST LIKE BEING THERE. I ALSO ENJOYED TRYING TO RELATE TO THE MOVIES, KINDA ENJOYED IT. I HAD TO THEN WATCH THE MOVIES!!
Rob Ingles pulls you in with excellent story telling, giving all the key characters distinct voices. I especially liked hearing him read Samwise and Tree beard's parts. Even though it's long, I'll probably be listening to it again soon. It's that good.
In Chapter 2 and 3, occasional I heard background noise like people talking. Took away from the ambiance of the story.
the performance was masterful and was equal to the brilliance of the story. it was long but entertaining enough for me to keep listening. brilliant all around! I would recommend to anyone who loves a good story.
The Two Towers is probably one of the best fantasy books of all time if not the greatest. this is the first time I have ever listened to an unabridged version of this book and Inglis has such an amazing voice that it's hard to compare with any other reader. his command of pronunciation and character names found in all of tolkien's books is truely excellent.
these among other things truly gives this book a Golden Noodle from me :-)
