I’m not sure I’ve met anyone that doesn’t know who Tolkien is or what he wrote. Thanks to the good Peter Jackson many more not only know who he is, but have had a chance to experience the incredible world that Tolkien began creating during his time in the trenches of the first world war. As you may or may not know the Lord Of The Rings was written and published in three parts, these books Peter Jackson has taken and used to produce three films that run based on the stories. Fellowship of the Ring being that released in 2001, The Two Towers released 2002 and the final part, The Return of The King to be released later this year. For me ... Read the complete review

The Two towers is the second novel in the Lord of the Rings fantasy by JRR Tolkien and is in my opinion the greatest fantasy novel of all, it tells of the plight of Middle Earth under the growing powers of the evil warlord Sauron. The book continues from the Fellowship of the Ring but the nature of the ending of that novel means that the book is effectively split between the story of Frodo, Sam, and Gollum with the ring and Pippin, Merry, Gandalf et al in the fight for the lands of men against the Orc armies of Sauron. The Fellowship of the Ring The Fellowship of the Ring tells the simple on the surface tale of Frodo a hobbit from the shires journey ... Read the complete review

I originally read The Lord Of The Rings trilogy when I was 11. I received an amazing copy of it from my father for my birthday. I loved the tale but always considered the Two Towers to be the weakest of the three books. I think after the rollercoaster of the Fellowship (so much does happen) and the fact that we don't hear from Frodo and Sam again until about halfway through the book, I was a little disappointed. But every single year without fail I picked up the Lord of The Rings and read it again. And the Two Towers has really grown on me. Almost to the point where I can safely say it has gone from my least favourite volume to my favourite. From the emotional ... Read the complete review
