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

    "The best of times the worst of times"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Two Towers to be better than the print version?

    This was the best book of the trilogy in my opinion, BUT there is several boring parts (treebeard). All in all though it was amazing


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

    The other two


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

    Samwise


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

    Better then Peter Jackson's loosely following the book crap


    Any additional comments?

    The best of the trilogy. So so good

    "I managed to finish"

    I think I might feel differently about this book if I'd read it before I'd seen the movie. The book is different enough from the movie that it still has some interest, but Tolkien really needed an editor to help him slash this story. There are definitely times in the story that I find myself just pushing through so that I can get to the end. That said, I'm still planning to listen through the third book. I'm glad it's audio and I can listen while I work. I don't think I could manage to find enough sit down hours that I'd be willing to spend reading this book.

    "Very much enjoyed"

    Such a good rendition of LOTR. I really like the gentleman that reads the trilogy. He has a very good voice, sounds like a grandfather sitting down and reading it in front of a fire to his grandkids.

    "Awesome!"

    The reading of this book is fantastic. He is easy to understand and his inflection is wonderful. The voices he does for various characters are entertaining and very realistic (as real as orcs can be I suppose), his acting as Gollum is so good it grossed me out almost every time he had a line of dialogue. Great listening!!

    "Magnificent story!"

    This is not a light weight piece of literature but well worth the effort it takes to get into the plot. Tolkien is a master story teller, and Rob Inglis the perfect voice for a complex line up of characters. By the end I was both charmed and horrified by the different personalities. I found parts of myself in almost all of them, I'm afraid.
    On to THE RETURN OF THE KING!

    "So glad they picked the right narrator!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Two Towers to be better than the print version?

    Rob Inglis did a fantastic job reading this series plus The Hobbit. This is a great way for someone who has never read the books to be able to appreciate the purity of the books that were tampered with by the film makers. Highly recommended to all.


    What about Rob Inglis’s performance did you like?

    His voice is perfect for this story. I'm so happy they chose him to read this series!


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

    Too long to listen to in one sitting but I definitely listened to it as often as I could.
