The Two Towers (#02 in Lord Of The Rings Series)

J R R Tolkien

Building the story begun in The Hobbit and continuing the adventures of The Fellowship of the Ring, this is the second part of Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, featuring the definitive text, hyperlinked footnotes and page references, and a detailed map of Middle-earth.

Frodo and the Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in the battle with an evil spirit in the Mines of Moria; and at the Falls of Rauros, Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape the rest of the company were attacked by Orcs.

Now they continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin ? alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.

JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail.

? Part Two of Tolkien's great masterwork

? One of the greatest works of imaginative fiction in the English language

? The acknowledged Book of the 20th Century, with sales in excess of 100,000,000 worldwide

? More than 15 million people in the UK saw 'The Lord of the Rings' films

? Peter Jackson's THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY set to be a major motion picture event in 2012
