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.

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.
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.
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. ☺
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.
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.
simply the best rendering I have yet heard, or perhaps even imagined. It has wonderful flow.
Vivid. Tragic. Hopeful
When Treebeard sees the destruction of all the trees and curses Saruman.
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!
The two towers was a good book but not quite as entertaining as the first and third books in the series
