The quality continues.

As I said I wasn't made aware of the BBC's dramatization of Lord of the Rings until 2001, twenty years after its initial release. And even then I wasn't aware of the anniversary edition which added the opening and closing narrations by Frodo. But as I said it was a much better version than the NPR Playhouse version. Granted I do still somewhat enjoy that one, but after hearing this one I must conclude that it' is far superior. And of course it's far better than the films, as good as those admittedly were.
One thing I like about this version is that it stays more or less true to the characters as described in the book, which the films didn't always do.. A notable example is Treebeard. In the NPR playhouse version he was voiced by Tom Luce with a rather annoying echo effect added. Needless to say it made hm sound rather campy. In the films he was hostile towards the Hobbits at first and made them aware of Gandalf's survival long before they learned of it in the book. Here, actor Steven Thorn gives him a commanding yet somewat mischievous quality that I always did perceive in the character. And the Ents have a cool marching song which I'm sure was in the novel but here is excellently presented.
In short I don't think I stopped listening to this any longer than was absolutely necessary, such as for meal and bathroom breaks. But then back to it I went. And now that Audible has them I can carry them with me on my IPod anytime, which should come in useful particularly for long trips in the car. And tense or scary parts of the story really come off as tense or scary here, which is definitely a good thing! Excellent music and SFX combined with an excellent cast bring this tale fabulously to life. It's definitely worth the credits or the money.

Classic Story Well Dramatized

What made the experience of listening to The Lord Of The Rings the most enjoyable?

Had these on tape. Decided to upgrade to digital audio on my players. Reminds me of when I read these as a teenager. Still one of the best stories ever written.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Sam. In the middle book of the trilogy you learn the value of Sam and his strength. Like Bean was to Ender, Sam is to Frodo.

Have you listened to any of the narrators???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Well produced ensemble cast. Easy to listen and understand who is talking. Very high production value.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Just relax and enjoy an amazing book.

Brilliant for light listening

Once again I enjoyed listening to The Two Towers in dramatization. I think the story is always so much more enriched when the different characters are spoken by different people.
If you want heaps of detail to the story line then don't buy this, there is only so much detail that can be added while incorperating sound effects and music. But overall I found that it contained enough plot line to get the major gist of the story without being waffly and boring to listen to. I really love the LOTR trilogy over the full book anyway. The book, (though I'm sure is amazing once you get into it) is very waffly at the start and I could not read it, so having this to listen to gave me the chance to picture the whole Tolkein world with very little effort.
This Is great to have in the car to listen to on long, and otherwise boring, journeys.

Nicely Dramatised

I've read the triligy several times and love the unabridged work, however this dramatised version has very good voices and pace. I don't care for the singing, but I tend to fast forward through that and it's just part of the story.

A little too abridged for my taste.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Not for me. I kept tripping over all the things that had been left out of the story.

If you are looking for plot and excellent performances, then you would probably enjoy this version.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I would have kept more of Tolkien's original language.

Have you listened to any of the narrators’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

They are all quite good. I like what the actors do with their lines, I just wish there was more.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

It has been made into a movie, and yes, I have seen it. :-)

Any additional comments?

For most people this would be an excellent adaptation, The music and the performances are very well done.

absolutely Fantastic

I loved this dramatization, but I found it to be lacking in the story department. if I was unfamiliar with LOTR I believe I would have been lost at many different moments throughout.
but giving that I have read the book more time than I care to count I followed along perfectly and the voice actors were incredible!

The Towers

If you could sum up The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers (Dramatised) in three words, what would they be?

When it comes to radio plays the BBC really knows what it's doing. Originally a thirteen episode dramatization from the 60's l believe with some extra dialogue to bring it up to date with Jackson's epic movies there's nothing to say other than "Wow!" I would happily recommend this to everyone l know and even to those l don't know.

The road goes ever on

This second part of Professor Tolkien's trilogy sees many branching paths. Nearly all the great moments are here; the chase after the Uruk Hai, the taming of Smeagol, the battle of Helm's Deep. I nearly laughed when Gimli scolded Merry and Pippin and shuddered during the ordeal with Shelob. Brilliant presentation.
