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

    A fantasy audiobook that takes me far away from the road increases my quality of life with every new title I 'read'.

    Story
    "Only because it is LOTR"

    I love the LOTR movies so I enjoyed the book because of the insight it brings to the show but as just as a book it was just ok. It's weird how Frodo and Sam don't come in till half way and then get the rest of the book. It's like a "their story" then "their story" kind of book rather than a combined tail. I find it interesting still the changes that the movie to adapt the story to film.
    Enjoyable and fun.

    "Even better than Fellowship of the Ring!"

    Adore the movies, but had never read the books. I enjoyed FotR to get more history and background l, but felt the extended edition of the movie was, surprisingly, better. The Two Towers though, I felt the book was superior to the movie. Spectacular.

    Story
    "Classic English Literature"

    Being older now and the eyes not what they used to be, my brother mentioned that I should enjoy some "reading" with my ears. As Tolkien's Lord of the Rings remains one of the best I've ever enjoyed, it was, naturally, chosen first. Having just enjoyed Rob Inglis's wonderful interpretation of The Two Towers, (first enjoying The Fellowship of the Ring), I now look forward to purchasing The Return of the King! And so on we journey!

    "Love the performance but"

    I can actually hear background noise during this recording! Distant sounds of people talking! Definitely freaked me out when I was listening at home alone.

    "nice job."

    I read this series back in the 1970s as a school girl. And read it and read it! This is a great way to revisit Middle Earth. I even enjoy his singing! He brings the words to life. I begin Return of the King tonight!
