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.

Two excellent artists!

J. R. R. Tolkien needs no introduction. He has made an indelible mark on our modern western heritage. He spins a fantastic world into being through plot, setting and depth of characters and cultures. What surprised me about the audio book is the performance of Rob Inglis. His voice, both in narration and character acting, fill the imagination with vigour.
As one who usually reads nonfiction, being more driven by facts and ideas than imagery, tackling a so great an epic as LotR has proven difficult. I enjoy the occasional fiction but it never really paints an image to my mind. Listening to these books so well performed, frees the mind to move beyond the words of the text to the passion and beauty of the tale itself.

good narrating

I did have an issue listening when I could hear people talking in the back ground. It was very distracting from the story.

Transported to Middle Earth

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

He adds so much with his reading. Rob Inglis did an excellent job. I love his voice. I think anyone who has read the books should also get this rendition (and if you've never read them, definitely get this version). I don't have any complaints. I love all his character voices.

Aragorn is not your sassy gay friend

What made the experience of listening to The Two Towers the most enjoyable?

If you could sum up The Return of the King in three words, what would they be?
This Review goes for the whole series. Tolkien is the master, of course. Everyone loves TLITR. I have heard that The Return of the King goes on too long after the resolution of central conflict, but I love seeing these beloved characters all return to where they belong. I enjoy the long, relaxing wind-down.
Anyway, the reading is dated in that the gentleman's voice makes the men sound painfully effeminate. The book needs to be read by a more masculine person.

Frodo, Sam, Marry, and Pippin are the hobbits. Legolas is the elf. Boromir and Aragon are the humans. Gimly is the dwarf.

The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings books are beautifully written with detail and detailed language! When I'm listening to these books I can picture the whole story and landscape in my mind!
I would not recommend these books for children under nine because there is some very detailed violence.
I dislike nothing at all about these books!

Review

It took some getting use to the narrators voice, but it got better as it went on. I really like these stories though. The Lord Of The Rings trilogy is like no other.

My favorite audible book of all time!

Rob Inglis does a superior job of reading and voicing the characters in Lord of the Rings! I guess you would call the book kind of a cult for me. The trilogy is my comfort book and I have read it many times and listened to it twice, both times by the same narrator. Awesome! Highly recommended! Enjoy!
