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

    "Rob Inglis is great."

    This voice actor knows what he's doing and makes the books amazing.
    He is comparable and better than Roy Dotrice the guy who did the Game of Thrones books, and that guys is fantastic too!

    "Great Narration of the actual book"

    I loved the narration. For those who've seen the movie first, the actual book (which came first) is more detailed and more exciting. I encourage everyone to purchase this narration The Lord of the Rings

    "A must listen"

    This is a must listen because of the impact the book made on our mainstream culture. However, it has a real tendency to drag on and on. The narrator is a perfect fit for the book and the series.

    "Beautifully read and sing"

    Rob Inglis reads and sings and chants better than even I imagined the books to go in my head. This version is lovely.

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

    I would say it's in the top 10 so far.


    What other book might you compare The Two Towers to and why?

    I guess I would compare it to The Fellowship of the Ring, for obvious reasons.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    He does a fantastic job of personifying certain characters. From essential characters such as Frodo to nameless orcs, he really does an exceptional job. Two of my favorite characters that he brings life to would be Sam and Treebeard. Sam was my favorite in Fellowship of the Ring and Inglis did a great job to give his character life and making him a favorite of mine in The Two Towers as well. The same goes for Treebeard, I absolutely loved listening to his character and the way he was brought to life. Credit goes to Tolkien for creating these characters, obviously, but Rob Inglis gives a grade A performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was in a way. I would find myself getting wrapped up in the story and not wanting to wait to continue, but life goes on and sometimes it's best to sit aside and come back to it when you can completely indulge in the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The Two Towers is a wonderful addition in The Lord of the Rings trilogy. There's more action in this one and it still progresses the story in great strides. It also introduces a lot of new memorable characters while still giving the characters we know and love a lot of build up and character progression. I loved the story-line with Frodo, Sam, and Gollum. It's always interesting to see how a character will approach a necessary evil and the fact that Sam is there to watch and share his perspective is even better.

    Give this trilogy a shot and enjoy the journey!

    "An Old Favorite."

    I've read all the LOTR books numerous times. This is my first time listening to them. Rob Ingliss does a fabulous job . He makes all the lands and folk come alive. I'll listen to these many times in the years to come.
