The Two Towers

The Two Towers. Another Tolkien review Yep, I m putting out another Tolkien review I m on a mission, a mission to review everything written by Tolkien And I literally mean everything I ve read most of his works, so I m starting with those first before I move on to the few I haven t read there s not many.This is all preparation, and a readdress of his writings, before I delve into Christopher Tolkien s twelve book The History of Middle Earth later on this year Yep, I m that much of a Tolkien nerd I ve been meaning to tackle it for years, and it will likely take me even longer to get through, but I know it will be worth it For now though, as I did with my review for The Fellowship of the Ring, here are a series of ten points to explain exactly why I love this particular book 1 Gandalf the White Do I not say truly, Gandalf, said Aragorn at last, that you could go whithersoever you wished quicker than I And this I also say you are our captain and our banner The Dark Lord has Nine But we have One, mightier than they the White Rider He has passed through the fire and the abyss, and they shall fear him We will go where he leads.Gandalf the Grey was charming and quirky he was
The hope for saving Middle Earth continues THE FELLOWSHIP IS BROKEN There is some good in this world, and it s worth fighting for. So much for the fellowship made of representative of the races of good in the Middle Earth with the task of destroying The One Ring in the hellish fires of Mount Doom, located right inside of Sauron s domains.Members fell, member got tempted by The One Ring, members got trapped, the journey now has two roads and it s not certain which way is the right one Maybe no one is, but they need to take decisions, keep in movement and to trust that they are doing what is right.While they knew each other in some cases barely before the start of the mission, they now have a bond, a camaraderie, a friendship that it will be put to test to the maximum.New allies will rise but also the dark forces are getting stronger.And yet, HUGE surprises are ahead of them Since it seems that in Middle Earth certain things aren t definitive ISENGARD S AGENDA A king will have his way in his own hall, be it folly or wisdom. Something that I liked while reading the book s since I noticed it since the first one is that Saruman is a servant of Sauron Yes, the powerful wizard of Isengard wants The One Ring BUT
Book Review For as long as I can remember, I have loved serial fiction and saga stories The Lord of the Rings trilogy and associated books by J.R.R Tolkien are a treasure I first found the books when I was 14 and had to re read again when the movies came out in the last decade or so The second book, The Two Towers, was a worth follow up, enhancing every original love I had with the story I m generally not a fan of the fantasy genre, and have only read perhaps 20 books in total, less than 3% of my entire reading history But something about these books absolutely stands out among to me as a truly amazing series I liken it to Star Wars as a movie and film phenomena, when it comes to the saga story But this one started out as a set of books, which makes it even fantasticFor me, although I loved all three in the series, the middle one was the least favorite, but they were all still 4 The first one introduces everything and sets the stage The last one is the epic battle The middle o
A review of Lord of the Rings The Two Towers by SauronAfter my review of the Fellowship of the Ring, my agent BBMed me and said that people still thought I was a bitter a hole He suggested that I learn to deal with my situation by talking with some likeminded people who have faced similar frustration So he signed me up for Dark Lords and Villains Anonymous At least that s what it s called on the website When I send out a FB invite to my peeps I usually use the subject line Hatas Beware Because General Zod is still trapped in that ridiculous Phantom Zone, we can t really meet in person so we IM Every week a member discusses his or her public failure This is the transcript from my week.Sauron Hello, my name is Sauron, and it s been 56 years since the publication of my defeat.Group Hello Sauron Sauron I m I m not sure where to start I just don t think I ve been given a fair shake I recently emailed an op ed piece to the editor of the Times In it, I argued that the name of Tolkien s masterpiece should be renamed An Unprovoked Attack On Sauron the Merciful and that the second book should be entitled Saruman F cks The Pooch Crusty old cracker It looked like my email was blocked so I tried another None of them worked frodosucksballs bitemearagorn theresnowayanelfcouldfireabowandarrowlikethat Nothing Anyways, my point is that none of this was my fault I mean, things started off fin
The second act of the classic Lord Of The Rings saga is divided into two halves the second half focussing on Frodo, Sam and Gollum and the first half focussing on the rest of the divided fellowship.To be honest, I love

Herewith Some Notes On My Inaugural Journey Through The Second Volume Of Tolkien s The Lord Of The Rings Me after staying up all night reading The Two TowersI liked The Fellowship Of The Ring , but this book made me love Tolkien s Middle Earth epic Some of the writing is astonishing see quotes below The author handles various storylines the fellowship has scattered, after all gracefully And after having two of its main characters and their slimy guide spend a lot of time climbing up a cliff, the book ends on one whopper of a cliffhanger The Treebeard and Ent scenes are magical, if overly long I love the ecological theme destroying the countryside to fuel industry and war has consequences and the way the Ents are described Fewer songs and poems , which means fewer songs and poems to read with eyes glazed over With the exception of Sam s Oliphaunt poem simply adorable Here it is Loved the Th oden transformation scene And really, people trusted Gr ma Wormtongue Wasn t his, you know name, a clue to his character Saruman s manipulative speech at Isengard, when he tries to use his evil wizard powers to win over
Tolkien did not design The Lord of the Rings to be read as three separate books However, since the book is flawless, there is just no boring moment Even if you chop it further to 6, 12 or 24 books, I think all of them deserve 5 stars I am not a big fan of fantasy genre but this one is just over the top It is about good vs evil and the nature of evil With a universal theme like that, the non stop action, the memorable characters, the extricate design of the fictional world, Middle Earth and the lyrical prose, Tolkien wrote a book that will outlive all of us here on earth.The story begins with the four hobbits separated into two, Frodo and Sam who will later meet Gollum on their way to Mordor and Merry and Pippin lost in Fangorn and later meeting the Treebeard and the rest of the Ents This is after the death of Boromir who is one of the members of the Fellowship Book 1 He is killed by the Orcs after his attempt to steal the ring from Frodo and Sam If Book 1 was mostly about the four hobbits,
I m one of very few people in the world that actually really hate the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and The Hobbit as well I ve read The Hobbit twice, trying to capture the second time what I was sure I must have missed the first time round but no And then I read The Fellowship of the Ring and found Frodo s story to be as drab and long winded as that of Bilbo I would have stopped there but my friends told me that I should definitely read this book, promising me great adventure and well written fantasy worlds And still no.I realise I am
