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

    "Classic"

    A true classic that gains power when spoken and sung. Rob Inglis has a great voice for the story like he stepped out of the 40s.

    "Faramir and Samwise Hero's of Choice"

    Greater story than Homer and the Illyad. Be sure to start with The Fellowship of the Ring, but don't let it's slow start put you off.

    "Excellent rendering of an old favorite except.... "

    The only thing about this that falls short is the singing. The interminable monotonous monotone singing. If you have read the books, you know they describe much singing by elves, dwarves, men and other fancible beings. Yet, the narrator, who is wonderful in all other respects, sings each "song" in a nearly identical monotone "tune." It was such punishment to the ears that I soon skipped forward evey time he began to sing. I'm surprised that for such an otherwise steller performance, some music undergraduate wasn't tapped to put real tunes to all the songs in all 4 books. They would have done it for free just for the credits. As is, the singing grates on mind and soul.

    "Good"

    The hobbit sections can drag slightly but overall it's good and the scenes don't drag like the movie.

    "A Classic Standing Tall - Part 2"

    I still love the word craft of Mr Tolkien.
    It proudly stands against time and all the multimedia matters all around.
    I highly recommend it to everyone wishing to get lost in a vast land of Fantasy.
