J. R. R. Tolkien – The Two Towers Audiobooktext
It’s been a little while since I finished reading the second volume of our fantastic epic, usually I ask hot criticisms because the sensations are stronger. the lack of time not having allowed me to do it, I will leave my review now especially since I have just watched The Hobbit again, well in the mood.
Les deux tours is the logical continuation of the first volume since we find the characters in the situation where we left them, however due to the division of the book and the progress of the plot this book is very different. J. R. R. Tolkien – The Two Towers Audiobook .
The story resumes with the death of Borormir and the dissolution of the community which takes very different paths so we are once on the side of Gimli, Legolas and Aragorn, another on the side of our two little simplet Hobbits Merry and Pippin in a first portion. It is only from the 350 or 400 th page that we finally have news of the bearer of the ring and his faithful companion. Strange you would tell me? On the contrary, if it sounds like it, I found the writing even more fluid, the cutting better done, a more rhythmic whole and in short a much more pleasant reading.
Tolkien continues to make us travel by plunging us a little more into his very rich universe, in this volume we notably meet the men of Rohan and Théoden their leader, the Ents, of Saroumane (who until the end of the year). had appeared only in narrative), of Faramir and his men of Gondor … The creatures and the battles are numerous and decisive. I loved seeing certain characters (Sam, Pippin, Saroumane, Gollum …) much more in-depth.
The two towers is a turning point as it symbolizes the direct confrontation between good and evil, the fulfillment of the quest which becomes harder and harder and more urgent as the world darkens and evil continues to grow. increase. The fall of Saruman is very interesting and particularly well written because we are witnessing an orde which crumbles and behind all that we realize that Sauron has never been so present, he looks at everything through his eye. Battles such as the one in Helm’s gulf frightened me, but in the end the author managed to keep an alert rhythm which does not run out of steam and gives movement to the writing, not heaviness. Also the return of Gandalf the white is a very happy moment especially since it returns to us with full of information, always more wisdoms and stories concerning the middle earth.
In the second part of the J. R. R. Tolkien – The Two Towers Audiobook we follow Sam, Frodo and their very reliable guide Gollum in the dark lands of Gondor then their advance towards the terrible Mordor (as Boromir would say “one does not simply into Mordor). We see that the trials to be faced are more and more hard, that exhaustion and despair guide our two friends, in addition we discover Gollum the devious which is very very very interesting because the character is very complex, he is also key in the story of the ‘rings. I really liked the meeting with Faramir, the way we learn more about his brother Boromir, about Gondor, the war …. Once Frodo and Sam have been distributed, they are exposed to Gollum’s deceptions. bring them into very delicate situations. Sam’s bravery and Frodo’s good heart are remarkable facts very emphasized in this part of the book. The end of this volume gives only one desire: to continue in order to know how our friends are doing get out and lead to their quest.
In short, “the two towers Audiobook” was a real favorite, I simply adored and preferred the first volume. I found this one less demonstrative, less methodical because it was less based on a particular itinerary supervised by a company, less painful because the descriptions of the places were less in favor of the characters and the action. This one is much more exciting due to the fact that the battles and events follow one another, that everything becomes darker and the mission seems drawn to an end. I did not feel the reading so much I was carried away at the end I wanted only one thing: to continue then, a piece of advice: listen to it!
