I love this Book. It is action packed and suspense full.
I love this book it is filled with action and suspense. The characters are Frodo, Sam, Gollem/Smeagol, Pippin, Mary, Gandalf , Aragorn, Saruman, Wormtounge, Gimli, Legolas , and Theoden. Hope you read it!
I read the hobbit and the fellowship of the ring. These books tend to lack females but are extremely interesting. A wizard named Saruman is trying to take over everything because the ring of power does his bidding and Frodo is trying to destroy the ring before Saruman gets it and everything becomes dark.
I love the amount of detail J.R.R Tolkien put into this book and really enjoyed reading it.
i am still reading this
If you liked the first Lord of the Rings book, you'll love the sequel. The book The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien is set somewhere in the year 3023 In the fictional land of Middle-Earth. The major protagonist would be Frodo Baggins, son of Drogo. He has to destroy the accursed Ring of Power in Mount Doom, right under the nose of the major antagonist, Sauron. Lots of minor skirmishes happen, but the most intense battles are the storming of Isengard, and the battle of Helm's Deep. One of the turning points in the book might be when Frodo and Sam had decided to leave the Fellowship, and travel to Mordor alone. Through many dangers, the book shows the loyalty of Sam, and how the main characters are able to reach the mountains. And as if it wasn't pressure enough, their friends are on the other side of the world, fighting a war they cannot win. Frodo must reach Mordor before Rohan and Gondor fail. I like the book, because despite the fact that there are many kingdoms, Tolkien is consistent in direction.
I read this book and realized that there is not an author better at keeping such a long story so engaging.
In J.R.R. Tolkien's The Two Towers , adventure and peril are peeking around every corner. In the epic sequel to The Fellowship of the Ring, the Fellowship begins to crumble. Gandalf is lost in Kazad-Dûm to a Balrog. Boromir falls beside the Anduin protecting Meriadoc and Perigrin to the bitter end. Frodo and Sam set off for Mordor alone, where the accursed Ring of Power must be destroyed in Mount Doom. Pippin and Merry are captured by orcs, and Legolas, Gimli, and Aragorn are left to track Merry and Pippin. In this book, you will experience Rohan, Fangorn, the Falls of Rauros, and Isengard. However, Frodo and Sam will have to be careful. For the watchful Eye of Sauron and the creature Gollum both want the Ring for themselves. Best book ever.
I really liked this, but be warned. It goes on, and on, and on.
