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 read or listen to this series annually. This is the only recording to listen to. The narrator is superb, he gets it.
If you haven't listened to this recording you haven't seen how magical this story can be.
I'm an English major who considers good fiction to be written in unique prose with stand-out characters and a story that refuses to die.
Stellar performance- Rob Inglis is amazing with his different and unique voices for the characters! And it's Lord of the Rings, so of course the story is perfect ;)
I read the entire series in high school and decided to listen to it again on Audible. The story is, of course, a masterpiece and well-worth listening to again. My only complaint is that this is an older recording. The narrator does a good job--no real complaints but this is such an iconic and popular story that I think it deserves being updated to include multiple narrators such as Audible has done with Ender's Game, Dracula, Dune, etc...
Who says, "Money can't buy happiness? It buys Books & Yarn....I'm happy! 💜
Love it. love all of Tolkien's works. Happy they are available on audio books now.
Loved the book and movie, but this audible version was the most enjoyable! Had read in a small treatise on J.R.R.Tolkien's work that the tale was best experienced as an aural narrative. I have to say that I agree. The narrator has done a superb job telling this tale. I'm sure I will listen to it more than once and very much look forward to the third and final episode of the Lord of the Rings, The Return of the King.
I'm a little biased as these are my favourite books of all time and I've read them many times. Having this great audio version allowed me to experience them in a whole new way. I'd highly recommend the audio books to anyone who's read them on paper.
I'd also like to commend the narrator for putting melody to the poems. Each was unique and it really added character to the performance.
This tale has lits of action and a growing tension that ramps up amidst tales of valor and honor. It is more than just a tale of fantasy. It is a bold adventure that cannot help but inspire.
