The Two Towers

7100699The Two Towers
The Lord of the Rings #2
by J.R.R. Tolkien
Ebook, 336 Pages
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

Where Fellowship of the Ring felt like a history in many respects, Two Towers just kicked butt.

Chases, battles, hoards of orcs, warriors, Gollum. It felt like a whirlwind of action. I especially enjoyed Strider, Legolas and Gimli’s chase of the hobbits.

One thing I noticed. In the movie, the orcs blow a hole in the wall at Helm’s Deep, and I was like “Yeah, whatever. Not in the book, but cool”. Well blow me down, but it IS in the book. Very understated and all, but there none-the-less. [tip ‘o the hat to Mr Jackson]

So my verdict on this book? Better than the previous and a jolly well written book!
