Summary:

The Fellowship is broken; the quest to destroy the Ring seems already shrouded in disaster. But as the evil lord Sauron readies his armies for war, Frodo and Sam continue their lonely journey toward Mordor, guided only by Gollum--a deceitful and tortured creature, helplessly in thrall to the Ring's dark power.

    I've loved the Lord of the Rings tales since I first read them back in 1971. I've read them a dozen times since then, and have watched Peter Jackson's movie versions at least that many times. This audio production, however, turned me off. It suffers from the same problem that plagues nearly every other film or audio adaptation of the story until Peter Jackson got it right: it does not take the story seriously. The production is clearly aimed at a more juvenile audience, and most of the actors approach their characters with either a tongue-in-cheek or a condescending attitude. The audio effects of the Nazgul are laughable. You can almost hear the actors snickering between takes. There may be a good audio production of the LOTR out there, but this one isn't it. I've only continued listening to it because I don't have a better selection handy at the moment.

    I disagree with the previous reviewers as this is an exceptional recreation of The Two Towers with strong voice acting, particularly Sam and Gollum.

    This production of The Two Towers is not worth renting. It was a disappointment in every way i.e. sound quality, acting, abridgement.

    Unlistenable!! I gave up after a few hours. Confusing and very hard to follow.
