The Two Towers (The Lord of the Rings #2) by J.R.R. Tolkien

As you may know, I recently started the Lord of the Rings trilogy a month ago (finally). I knew going in that I was going to love the story, even though anything I knew of the story was from the movies.

While there was one tiny thing that threw me off from immediately loving The Fellowship of the Ring, I still cannot deny how great this trilogy is!

Blurb: 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.

I’m not going to lie, one of my favorite parts of this book was the Ents. I think I just love the idea of there being walking, talking trees around. What I also liked was getting the different point of views from the Fellowship members. I hate that they had to separate though it made total sense for the story.

This one felt way more adventurous to me. Frodo and Sam are on their own adventure, though perilous, especially when they catch Gollum. Merry and Pippin are on their own journey as well and then are able to reunite with the other members. And there is Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli that stick together for the rest of the story (their bond is something that I think the movies did really well).

What were your thoughts on the second installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy?
