    "worthy of the term 'classic'"

    I have read this series many times. Although there are a few mispronounced names, Rob Inglis provides a fantastic performance of a timeless classic.

    "Much more interesting than the 1st book"
    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rob has a different voice for every character (and there are a lot) and even makes his own melodies to all the songs (also a lot) in the book. One of the better narrators around.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't too excited to start this book since the Fellowship book dragged on for me (good, but traveling through the forest was too long). The story in the Two Towers is more engaging and has more action than the first book. I'm disappointed that I listened to this one so early in the month that I have to wait for next month's credits to get the third book.

    "Best reading yet!"

    This book is a great classic. When you put Rob Ingles together with LOTR, it's even better. Rob Ingles did a super job on this, and so does Tolkien. Really pleased. ☺

    "Fuck Yeah Rob Inglis."

    It goes without saying that Tolkien was a master at his trade, and that "somethings that should not have been forgotten, were lost" in the movie adaptation. However, I was surprised at the unimaginable beauty that the narrator brought to this audio book. He had at least 25 different voices for the characters he read, he sang the songs Tolkien penned, and he painted every detail into your head, with the Way in which he read. Good show, indeed.

    Great narrator and worth the price.
    I love rob Inglis' voice of Tree beard. He is also a lovely poem reader.

    "So Disappointed - Not in Enhanced Audio"
    Any additional comments?

    LOTR is one of the greatest books of all time and Rob Inglis does a very good job of narrating. Sadly this book is only available in an old format - so if you are planning to play in on an up to date device check first that the format will work.

    "Unmatched quality"
    If you could sum up The Two Towers in three words, what would they be?

    simply the best rendering I have yet heard, or perhaps even imagined. It has wonderful flow.

    "Love Tolkien"
    If you could sum up The Two Towers in three words, what would they be?

    Vivid. Tragic. Hopeful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Two Towers?

    When Treebeard sees the destruction of all the trees and curses Saruman.


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

    Each character gets its own unique sound. When reading on my own I tend to skim through the poetry, but he sings! And I love it!

    Where does The Two Towers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The two towers was a good book but not quite as entertaining as the first and third books in the series
