The company of the Ring is sundered. Frodo and Sam continue their journey alone down the great River Anduin - alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.
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.
In 'The Two Towers', the second part of the trilogy, Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli attempt to rescue the hobbits, and Merry and Pippin, Frodo and Sam must journey into Sauron's desolate land of Mordor unprotected and alone.
