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

    Story
    "Rob Inglis is a perfect pairing with Tolkien!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, and already have recommended Rob Inglis' audio version to my fellow Tolkien lovers!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    This changes every time I read (listen to) the book! Faramir is always a favorite due to his gentle warrior nature and his steadfast resistance to the lure of the Ring.


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

    Rob Inglis makes the story come to life and does the differences between characters very well. His manner of speech flows very fluidly over Tolkien's challenging Elvish, Middle Earth, etc. language and description of locations.


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

    Sam's speech while he and Frodo are with Faramir is always a great moment and a triumph for those whose heroic deeds are sometimes less obvious than the main heroe's deeds.


    Any additional comments?

    Love Rob Inglis' narration!!! Definitely a compliment to Tolkien!

    "Still the Greatest"
    What did you like best about this story?

    Tolkien created a vast world with rich history. Each character, not just the main ones, are well thought out with their own unique history and personality. You feel like you're only getting a glimpse or slice of a larger picture. The story is complete, but you want to know more about everything else going on in the world.

    Story
    "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

    Story
    "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!!
