    "Best. Series. Ever."

    Rob Inglis really does justice to, in my opinion, the best books ever written! Fantastic story-lines, fantastic narrative, you really can't go wrong with The Lord of the Rings Trilogy or The Hobbit. Buy it!

    "What A Classic!"

    "Classic"
    What did you love best about The Two Towers?

    The choice of Rob Inglis to narrate the book was perfect. He sings the songs well, and it is easy to follow as characters change, and as the plot twists and turns.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story is a timeless tale that I enjoyed reading when I was younger, but never finished. I really enjoyed listening to the exciting parts without all the graphic violence, many of todays writings have. It kept my interest throughout the entire book.


    Which character – as performed by Rob Inglis – was your favorite?

    Sam - He went from a servant, almost a simpleton to a hero in the story. The way Rob portrayed this character was spot on. The development was perfect.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend the entire series. I will probably listen to it again in a year or so.

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

    Intriguing, humorous, exciting


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Peregrin "Pippin" Took because he's the humor relief.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love every part in the book.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Once again I love every part.

    "Loved this series"
    What made the experience of listening to The Two Towers the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed all four books. The audible versions were so engaging. In the Two Towers I loved the battle at Isengard, the way the Ents helped bring down Sauron and took back what was theirs.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character was Gandolf. He always rallied the troops, kept everyone on task and found a way to be inspiring to all the characters; motivating them to continue even in the face of despair.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Ent battle of Isengard.


    Any additional comments?

    The only thing I found somewhat distracting were the Ent songs, this part really could have shorter.

    Story
    "Lord of the Rings still a classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! I've already recommended it to my son who is a J R R Tolkein fan already.


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

    His multi-varied voice range, both in giving other characters and in singing the various ballads of the plot, give the audible version almost a "drama" character.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, my stoic personality prevents that.

    "After the first book, could not wait to start this"

    More perfection in story and narration. I never thought a audio book could add any vivid imagery better than reading the book. The movies were wonderful, but of course they adjusted and fiddled with the story ,places,timeline,and events to suit. This reading never missed a step.

    Everyone knows the story so that's not the selling point but the narration really makes it come alive. Nicely done!

    "Robert Inglis is perfect"
    Where does The Two Towers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I loved Robert's delivery. I can imagine he's a Tolkien fan himself.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    He was very careful to truly depict each character's voice, even when switching rapidly.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    What did you like best about this story?

    The richness of the characters. The way each "race" has foibles and strengths.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I don't love Rob Inglis's voice for this triilogy. Got over it as time went on.
