RE: The Two Towers
This is a pretty good sequel to The Fellowship of the Ring and should definitely be read by anyone prepared to read a really long fantasy novel. When I say fantasy, I don't mean it involves magic and fairies: it's actually more of an epic. The story is very dramatic, but I strongly advise reading the first book in the Lord Of The Rings series first, because the book can be a difficult read even when you have read the first book.
And I know I'm reviewing the book here, but the movie is just as good as the book, which cannot be said for many movies. However, read the book first because it makes the movie so much more exciting!
I hope you enjoy it!
