The second enthralling book in Tolkien's masterpiece trilogy is the two towers.
When the book begins we are left shocked as one of the members of the fellowship is killed. It is not long before we discover that Frodo and Sam have left the fellowship in order to prevent the people so dear to them getting killed because of the burden that Frodo carries.
The book then splits up at first following the trail of Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli on the hunt to save their friends Merry and Pip from an almost certain death at the hands of the Uraki.
In the latter half of the book we follow Frodos voyage to destroy the ring of power. He come across many different creatures including a mutated hobbit. Frodos half of the book is not as interesting as the hunting of the Uriks but it is bearable.
A great book and one that is definitely one to read sometime in your life.
