    "Great narration"

    I love this story and the narrator gave a fine performance unabridged and not a radio show.

    "The Saga Continues."

    Tolkien continues to spin an good yarn where the battle of good and evil continues. he continues to introduce new creatures and twists in plot and character development. Mistakes are made but the message is to keep going.

    Story
    "The absolute best way to experience The Lord of the Rings!!"
    Where does The Two Towers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy are THE best audiobooks I've listened to so far in a list of over 40 books every single one of which I've enjoyed. With Rob Inglis's narration, it is as if these books were written to be read aloud to fully appreciate them.


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

    There is a wonderful warmth and timbre to Rob Inglis's narration that brings out the beautiful lyrical quality of Tolkien's writing. Inglis's narration brings each character to life - making the audiobook a superior experience to simply reading the book or even watching the movie. One of the wonderful things about Inglis's narration are all the songs which are such an important element throughout the story but often skipped over or not properly appreciated when simply reading the book.


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

    Yes, but in reality it took about 3 days.


    Any additional comments?

    The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings audiobooks are an experience not to be missed. You will be drawn into Tolkien's world with the first few lines and not want to leave. When you do manage to tear yourself away, the story will continue to haunt your thoughts and dreams.

    "A classic!"

    And Robert Ingles is an incredible narrator :) The variety of his voices breathes life into these venerable characters, so that each becomes recognizable by the intonation of his voice :)

    "worthy of the term 'classic'"

    I have read this series many times. Although there are a few mispronounced names, Rob Inglis provides a fantastic performance of a timeless classic.

    "Much more interesting than the 1st book"
    What does Rob Inglis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rob has a different voice for every character (and there are a lot) and even makes his own melodies to all the songs (also a lot) in the book. One of the better narrators around.


    Any additional comments?

    I wasn't too excited to start this book since the Fellowship book dragged on for me (good, but traveling through the forest was too long). The story in the Two Towers is more engaging and has more action than the first book. I'm disappointed that I listened to this one so early in the month that I have to wait for next month's credits to get the third book.
