The Two Towers by J. R. R Tolkien audiobook is the second book in the book series of The Lord of the Rings.

The Fellowship is scattered and its members are mostly divided in two groups. A part of them are hopeless preparing for war against the ancient evil Sauron. The other part of them is struggling against the treachery of the wizard Saruman.

The ones that were left to take the Ring of Power to be destroyed in the dark Kingdom where Sauron was supreme (Mordor) are Frodo and Sam. Their guide there was a slave to the corruption of the Ring, Gollum.

This is how The Two Towers starts, continuing the epic adventure that was begun in The Fellowship of the Ring.

The story of The Lord of the Rings continues with The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien audiobook where we learn a lot more about this world and we prepare for the epic war of the following book.

To avoid giving spoilers about the story or the previous book (that you should have read anyways), in case you are part of the group of people that haven’t seen the movies or does not know anything about the path the story takes, we won’t cover many details about the plot.

The Two Towers by J. R. R. Tolkien begins directly where The Fellowship of the Ring left off: with Aragorn searching for Frodo Baggins, who is the hobbit in charge of carrying the One ring into Mordor; with Frodo and Sam that had left the others after their companion Boromir tried to steal the ring; and with Orcs attacking the remaining members of the fellowship.

This audiobook is the perfect transition between the first volume and the third one. It is filled with history, changes, explanations, secrets, and twists in the plot. The storytelling is spectacular and you learn a lot more from this audiobook. At first, all that information can seem overwhelming, but as the story advances and everything starts to makes sense, things get better.

In the second part of the audiobook the storyline is not so linear and the focus of the first part is on one set of characters and in the second part it is on another set of characters. Also, new characters are introduced, especially antagonists, and the ones we already know are more developed. Our personal favorite is Sam, with his immense heroism.

This audiobook is the perfect transition between the introduction and the ending of the story, and once you finished, you will want to start the next one right away.


In the Lord of the Rings, what are the Two Towers that give name to the second book?

They are Orthanc, Saruman's stronghold in Isengard, and Minas Morgul, a stronghold of the Nazgul on the edge of Mordor.

Why is The Two Towers divided in two books?

During the times when The Two Towers was originally published, it was too costly to print a book with so many pages, so Tolkien agreed that it will be divided into two books.

How would you describe the characters in The Two Towers?

The Two Towers has a perfect balance of dark and light characters, like the character of Theoden for the first case and the characters of Pippin and Merry for the second case.

Getting The Two Towers return of the King audiobook is worth it?

The audiobook of The Two Towers is totally worth it, as it gives you the opportunity of going through the plot in a more dynamic way. If you are not into reading long books or if you want to live the story in a different way, downloading the audiobook is a great idea!
