A very good follow up to the first book in the trilogy. Looking forward to the conclusion. Loved the Ents. ( )

Li este livro muito mais depressa do que o The Fellowship (levei praticamente um ano a ler este).
Talvez porque a acção começa a desenrolar nesta parte do Senhor dos Anéis.

Adorei os Ents, criaturas fantásticas! Não vou olhar para as árvores como antes, não. Espero sinceramente que encontrem as Entwives.

De uma forma genérica, e porque já bastam os spoilers que existem pela Internet fora, gostei mesmo desta leitura, emocionei-me com ela. Uma excelente companhia!
Estou com altas expectativas para o The Return of the King. ( )

My favorite memory with this book was while I was on a camping trip with Leah and Amy. Leah was reading [b:On the Road|6288|The Road|Cormac McCarthy|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21E8H3D1JSL._SL75_.jpg|3355573], Amy was reading a Buddhist book, and I was in the middle of Helm's Deep. We each took turns reading aloud around a paragraph at a time. It was beautiful! ( )

With this second amazing addition to the Lord of the Rings trilogy we follow the fellowship that has disbanded to complete their quest on different fronts. The war has begun, the fellowship is further tested and the ultimate battle between light and darkness is about to engulf Middle-earth. To my surprise when I read this book, there were some subtle hints to the previous story from the era of The Silmarillion imbedded within the tale as well. An epic read of the series and I'm sure that The Return of the King shall be just as fine. ( )

That 'The Lord of the Rings' should appeal to readers of the most austere tastes suggests that they too now long for the old, forthright, virile kind of narrative... the author has had intimate access to an epic tradition stretching back and back and disappearing in the mists of Germanic history, so that his story has a kind of echoing depth behind it...

Epigraph
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
Dedication
First words
Aragorn sped on up the hill. Every now and then he bent to the ground. Hobbits go light, and their footprints are not easy even for a Ranger to read, but not far from the top a spring crossed the path, and in the wet earth he saw what he was seeking.
Quotations
"Not asleep, dead".

Disambiguation notice
J.R.R. Tolkien's complete work The Lord of the Rings consists of six Books, frequently bound in three Volumes, as follow:
  • Volume I: The Fellowship of the Ring, consisting of Book 1, "The Ring Sets Out" and Book 2, "The Ring Goes South";
  • Volume II: The Two Towers, consisting of Book 3, "The Treason of Isengard," and Book 4, "The Ring Goes East"; and
  • Volume III: The Return of the King, consisting of Book 5, "The War of the Ring," and Book 6, "The End of the Third Age," with Appendices.
This LT Work consists of Volume II, The Two Towers; please do not combine it with any other part(s) or with Tolkien's complete work, each of which have LT Works pages of their own.

CAUTION: It appears that most copies of the title O Senhor dos Anéis: As Duas Torres in Portuguese translation are the complete Volume II of "The Lord of the Rings," published in English as The Two Towers. However, a Brazilian edition of the same title reportedly includes only the first part (of two) of Volume II, roughly corresponding to Book Three of the larger Work, The Treason of Isengard; see O Senhor dos Anéis. Please be mindful of the difference, and only combine records for Works having the same content. Thank you.

Book description
The Fellowship was scattered. Some were bracing hopelessly for war against the ancient evil of Sauron. Some were contending with the treachery of the wizard Saruman. Only Frodo and Sam were left to take the accursed Ring of Power to be destroyed in Mordor–the dark Kingdom where Sauron was supreme. Their guide was Gollum, deceitful and lust-filled, slave to the corruption of the Ring.
