The Two Towers

What to expect

This brand-new unabridged audio book of The Two Towers, the second part of J. R. R. Tolkien’s epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings, is read by the BAFTA award-winning actor, director and author, Andy Serkis.

The company of the Ring is torn asunder. Frodo and Sam continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin – alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

This continues the classic tale begun in The Fellowship of the Ring, which reaches its awesome climax in The Return of the King.

Critics Review

  • ‘An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent, in a region where everything is invented, forest, moor, river, wilderness, town and the races which inhabit them.’
    The Observer

    ‘Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century.’
    Sunday Telegraph

    ‘The English-speaking world is divided into those who have read The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit and those who are going to read them.’
    Sunday Times

    ‘A story magnificently told, with every kind of colour and movement and greatness.’
    New Statesman

    ‘Masterpiece? Oh yes, I’ve no doubt about that.’
    Evening Standard
