The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

By JRR Tolkien

This is book two in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. It contains parts three and four. After the first book, you would be wondering what happened to Frodo and Sam so Tolkien makes you wait, only revealing what happens to them in part four.

In part three you see a lot about poor Merry and Pippin and their adventures and you also see how things are going with Strider (or Aragorn), Legolas and Gimli. Part three brings back old characters and gives us an insight in great detail of the battles that follow their arrival.

Then we finally get to the part we have been waiting for. The much shorter, part four. This part tells us of the exploits of Frodo and Sam, (and the mysterious lurking figure that follows them wherever they go…)

I love this book even more than the first as there is a lot more action in it. It shows how each and every character must be brave at some point. The book has loads of descriptive and interesting language but the writing is small and I would recommend it to ten to twelve years and up.
