Description

The complete, unabridged audiobook of The Two Towers.

Building on the story begun in The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring, this is the second part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, available as a complete and unabridged audiobook.

Frodo and the Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in the battle with an evil spirit in the Mines of Moria; and at the Falls of Rauros, Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape the rest of the company were attacked by Orcs.

Now they continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin – alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

Don't miss the rest of Tolkien's masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings.

third book of the series

Audible have divided LOTR into six separate audiobooks. They aren't really separate books, but sections of the same book, so you need to read them in order, they won't make sense otherwise. This is the third book. (Start with "Fellowship of the Ring book 1")

Rob Inglis has a very traditional english voice and reads in a very measured way. I am a fan of Tolkien, and enjoy this reading, but if you have only seen the films, you may find it a bit slow.

Ents FTW !!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it's a classic and epic tale that everyone should enjoy.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lord of the Rings?

The meeting of Rohan's riders and the remaining members of the 9 Walkers.

Which scene was your favorite?

Every scene with Treebeard, including those being described by Pippin and Merry.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Many sections needed to be listened to in one sitting, but the story overall is far too long for that to be an option.

Fool of a Took!

If you could sum up The Lord of the Rings in three words, what would they be?

Greatest book ever.

What other book might you compare The Lord of the Rings to and why?

No other book can compare. George R R Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series comes closest, followed by Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series. The Lord of the Rings stands far above them all.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Merry and Pippin escape from the Orcs into Fangorn forest and meet Treebeard. The dialogue that takes place in this chapter is full of humour and is one of most memorable moments. The Hobbits grow taller as a result of drinking the draught given to them and their hair becomes curlier. Treebeard and the ents decide to attack Isengard.

Toll

Einfach spitze erzählt. Das ist Buch 3 von 6. es erzählt die Geschichte von Aragon , Legolas , Gimli, und von Mary und Pippin. Vom Zeitrahmen wo Pippin und Mary entführt werden bis zum Zeitpunkt wo Pippin und Gandalf nach Minas Tirith reiten.

Einfach ein tolles Buch und super gelesen von Rob Inglis
