あらすじ・解説

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.

批評家のレビュー

"An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent." ( The Observer)
"Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century." ( Sunday Telegraph)

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.

Absolutely loved this narrator. His performance was incredible. I don't know if he does the third book as well, but I certainly hope so!

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.

How can I review this?

What did you like most about The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Volume 1?

The Two Towers is darker and more exciting than The Fellowship of the Ring. Equally well written, it is part of a modern great.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, Volume 1?

It is all brilliant!

Would you listen to another book narrated by Rob Inglis?

Yes, as long as he didn't sing. The songs were a little painfully cringe inducing to me.

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

I always love this book.

Any additional comments?

I wish that I had never read it so that I could discover it all over again.

This is brilliant to hear, I do not have the time to read the book but hearing it allows me to work and enjoy the tales! It also helps because now I have a reference point for the pronunciation of certain names and places!

One 'Book' To Rule Them All!

WOW!! Absolutely superb! A truly amazing book, from start to finish. The Lord of the Rings movies, really don't even scratch the surface. This is, without doubt, a masterpiece. Excellently written, and narrated with style.

If you've watched the movies, and think you know what Lord of the Rings is about, think again. Get this book, and you will understand what I mean.

Absolutely brilliant!

Action Packed!

Story – 5/5

If you have been waiting for the action, this is the book where a lot of it starts happening – epic battles, minor scouting skirmishes, chases – it will keep you hooked from start to finish. We establish new races and army factions from middle earth, all as detailed as the last. The story is also split now amongst 3 different story arcs, each just as interesting as the next, which allows us to see the bigger picture of the war in midde-earth

As usual, Tolkien’s prose is superb. He creates such a complex and detailed world without it being taxing for the reader. As the godfather of modern fantasy, this series is a must for all fantasy fans, and far superior to the films if you have already enjoyed those. There is so much more to learn and understand that the films had to skip over. A well deserved 5/5 stars – for it’s influence on the genre alone if nothing else.


Performance – 4/5

Rob Inglis does a very good job with the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. He describes a detailed and complex world so well, making it an incredibly easy listen. I did feel that his character voices could have been a little more distinguishable, but his acting of them was done extremely well.


Overall – 4.5/5

What an epic

I'm about to read the final in the trilogy having so far cramming this and the first part back to back (as it were).

The other day, I discovered something quite shocking when I watched the Peter Jackson film of the same name. Before I started these books I loved the films, every single one - quite prepared to row with my grown up children when they borrowed the (extended) dvds without asking.

I'm sorry Pete but I can't watch them now, without misgivings, the books have thoroughly spoiled me. Extended box sets - bah!! A lot of actors flashing pleasing faces and big, doleful eyes at you. Pah!

...Okay, the wargs are slavering and wicked scary and the olyphants are dazzling, prehistoric looking beasts! Not to mention I would do anything to fly on a giant eagle and give Shadowfax a sugar lump - I still love your animals, my man and your fighting uruk hai!

Oh, but give me sweet, tender, loyal Sam and stinking, clammy, malevolent Gollum and a terrain that I have walked barefoot in alongside Frodo (bearing that burden) any day.

this is quite an old recording of the Lord of The Rings but the sound quality is fine and Rob Inglis did an excellent job of bringing the book to life. this will be in my audio library for years and will often be dusted off for a revisit to my beloved Middle Earth

Such a great telling of an epic journey!

Rob Inglis does a fantastic job. It's so nice to have the book read to you with character voices that change with mood and emotion, he reads as if he is invested in the story too. Tolkein's books are such a joy, they need no review.
Onward to book 3!
