    "A Narrator worthy of this books!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Two Towers the most enjoyable?

    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.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Two Towers?

    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.


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

    He go Treebeard down very well.

    "Skip?"

    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.
