two towers

Review of: Part One of  The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien

Reviewed By: Lucas

They’re scattered like seeds in a field. The Fellowship broke apart, but Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli stayed together. They found Boromir dead, so they gathered the weapons of the orcs he slayed while dying, and sent him with the weapons down a river. Then thewent to find Merry and Pippin.

Meanwhile, Merry and Pippin were tied by orcs and headed for Isengard.During one stop, the orcs were attacked, and the hobbits escaped. They sprinted to Fanghorn Forest where they met an ent named Treebeard, also known as Fanghorn, an ent is a tree giant. They roused up Treebeard against Isengard, and he angered the ent council, the ent council roused up the rest of the ents. Merry, Pippin, and all of the ents attacked Isengard, and latter met Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli. They told them their story about tracking the hobbits.

Legolas, Aragorn, and Gimli tracked The two hobbits up to where the orcs were attacked. There they met the Riders of Rohan. They lent them horses, they tracked the hobbits to Fanghorn, and they found Gandalf there. He told them to go back to Rohan with him.

At Rohan they saved a cursed king and traveled to attack Isengard, but retreated because there were too many orcs defending. After the attack, the orcs attacked, so Rohan defended their fort. After they killed all of the Isengard orcs, they went to Isengard to find ruin, Merry, Pippin, and Treebeard. They all went to visit Sarumon, their enemy, and Worntongue, the enemy’s assistant, in the Orthonic, which is the first tower in the book. They talked a bit about fake peace. Then they left.

I thought The Two Towers  just as amazing as the first book, The Fellowship of the Ring, I loved it. I thought it was awesome when the ents were getting roused up, because it was  exciting. I also thought the battle at Helm’s Deep was one of the coolest parts, because the whole time I read it, i was wondering which side would win.  J.R.R. Tolkien did an amazing job writing the sequel. I learned that size does not matter in adventures. Merry and Pippin helped take down a walled city, and i’m about their size.

I think if you are above sixth grade and you have read the first book, you should definitely read The Two Towers because it was amazing. You need to read the first novel before you read this one or it will make no sense at all. Definitely read these books if you have not.
