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.

If you don't know the story by now then you will never know it. The movie and the books I cut my teeth on these. As a young man. I have been disappointed many time by people that say this suits the book. I was happy with the films finally. Now we have the story read by a great narrator.
I have been a member oif Audio books for a long time and i discovered quite early that the narrator can make of break a book.
We all know the story so there are too many place to comment on I do dislike the marching though Mordor. Sam and Fordo hot, parched hungry and all the rest but old JRR was a wordy guy so you have to take the bad with the good.
He go Treebeard down very well.
This is a classic story that can be listened to over and over.
The Hobbit, The Return of the King, The Fellowship of the Ring. They are from the same author and have the same narrator.
Not that I am aware of.
I'm wondering if I could have skipped this second book in the series. I enjoyed the first book but now am wondering if I want to complete the trilogy. I felt The Two Towers was just a bridge between the two and not that necessary. I missed all the characters being together and the interplay among them. I didn't like that the ending just left you hanging.
