Inspired by The Hobbit, and begun in 1937, The Lord of the Rings is the saga of the great War of the Rings. As he crafted the alphabets, languages, and landscapes of Middle-earth, Tolkien created one of the most popular and imaginative works in English literature. The Two Towers is the second volume of The Lord of the Rings. The Fellowship has been forced to split up. Frodo and Sam must continue alone towards Mount Doom, where the 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-step colorfully forth from the pages. Rob Inglis' narration has been praised as a masterpiece of audio.

"If the first LORD OF THE RINGS movie left you wanting more, there's no need to wait until the next film hits theaters in December. Rob Inglis's gritty reading of the second part of Tolkien's epic trilogy neatly picks up where the first film and book left off, as our hobbit heroes, Frodo and Sam, seek to destroy the infamous Ring of Power. Those who experienced the first part of the trilogy via the movie will have to adjust to the more lyrical storytelling style and moderate pace of Tolkien's text (as well as many breaks for song). Inglis generally keeps things moving along nicely and, with his variety of well-conceived voices and characterizations, quite entertainingly. J.P.M. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine"
