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.

amazing story.

There's a reason it's one of the most popular book series ever written.
You've seen the movies, watched the tv shows, now hear the story as it was intended. you won't be disappointed.

Great reading!

I suppose it can’t be helped, but the singing gets old after a while.

Otherwise, Rob Inglis is a fantastic reader and it’s an enchanting performance!

Story is eternal, performance is distracting

I have read these books countless times & am still awed at the authors ability to have created so completely an entire world with historical continuity.
The narrators performance is excellent but throughout the telling there is low background talking/noises- this was the case in fellowship of the ring as well. This performance needs to be sound engineered to eliminate the distraction. I am very surprised this issue has never been addressed.

excellent story wired back ground noises

the story is amazing and thrilling though the recording has points where there sounds like people talking in the back ground or weird dull hums.

Even More Exciting, With Interesting Format

Even more exciting than the last, with interesting split storytelling format now that the company is divided. Excellent new characters, with returning villain Gollum being greatly expanded over his characterization in The Hobbit. Once again extremely impressive to think of how Peter Jackson adapted this, especially considering the split timeline which he had to stitch together, though much is still better in Tolkien's version. Narrator is excellent. [AUDIBLE]
