9780007149223: The Lord of the Rings: Part Two The Two Towers

The second part of Tolkien’s epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, featuring an exclusive cover image from the film

Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien’s great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented world which has proved timeless in its appeal.

To celebrate the release of the major motion picture trilogy, we will be reissuing the A-format paperbacks with exclusive images from the films on the covers, the second of which being The Two Towers, in which the Fellowship is sundered. While Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli attempt to rescue the hobbits, Merry and Pippin, Frodo and Sam must journey into Sauron’s desolate land of Mordor unprotected and alone.
