The two towers: being the second part of The lord of the rings

Cover
Houghton Mifflin Co., 1993 - 352 Seiten
The standard hardcover edition of the second volume of The Lord of the Rings includes a large format fold-out map. Frodo and his 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 a battle in the Mines of Moria. And 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 was attacked by Orcs. Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin -- alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

I enjoyed this more than The Hobbit and more as the story went on. As a fan of the movies it has taken me quite awhile to get to the first book. What surprised me was how the land is a character in the book, it has it's own spirit and will. Enjoyable. Vollständige Rezension lesen

I adore this narration! A wonderful way to experience a great book. It may not thrill everyone - if Mr Inglis voice is very different than how you hear the characters, you're stuck with it for 16 discs. At least give it a try. This copy will be back at the library shortly :) Vollständige Rezension lesen

Über den Autor (1993)

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but even as he studied these classics he was creating a set of his own.
