Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers - Audio BookRecorded Books
#1 on the Big Read List (UK's top 200). The classic second novel in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy.
The Two Towers - the second volume of The Lord of the Rings - continues the story begun in The Fellowship of the Ring. We pick up the story following the breaking of the Fellowship, the group of men, dwarf, elf, and hobbits commissioned to carry the One Ring to Mordor and destroy it. Aragorn, heir to the kingdom of Men, Gimli the dwarf, and Legolas the elf begin a race against all odds to rescue the hobbits Merry and Pippin, who have been abducted by Orcs. During their search, they encounter the Riders of Rohan, mounted warriors who warn them that the forces of the Dark Lord, Sauron, and Saruman, the wizard who betrayed Gandalf and the rest of his order- threaten King Theoden of Rohan, and the freedom of his people. War, treachery, unexpected allies, and the joyous return of an old friend keep your heart pumping throughout this continuation of Tolkien's epic myth.
