        John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE, was an English writer, poet, WWI veteran a First Lieutenant in the Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army , philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the high fantasy classic works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.Tolkien was Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo Saxon at Oxford from 1925 to 1945, and Merton Professor of English language and literature from 1945 to 1959 He was a close friend of C.S Lewis.Christopher Tolkien published a series of works based on his father s extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, form a connected body of tales, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about an imagined world called Arda, and Middle earth within it Between 1951 and 1955, Tolkien applied the word legendarium to the larger part of these writings While many other authors had published works of fantasy before Tolkien, the great success of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings led directly to a popular resurgence of the genre This has caused Tolkien to be popularly identified as the father of modern fantasy literature or precisely, high fantasy Tolkien s writings have inspired many other works of fantasy and have had a lasting effect on the entire field.In 2008, The Times ranked him sixth on a list of The 50 greatest British writers since 1945 Forbes ranked him the 5th top earning dead celebrity in 2009.Religious influencesJ.R.R Tolkien, was born in South Africa in 1892, but his family moved to Britain when he was about 3 years old When Tolkien was 8 years old, his mother converted to Catholicism, and he remained a Catholic throughout his life In his last interview, two years before his death, he unhesitatingly testified, I m a devout Roman Catholic Tolkien married his childhood sweetheart, Edith, and they had four children He wrote them letters each year as if from Santa Claus, and a selection of these was published in 1976 as The Father Christmas Letters One of Tolkien s sons became a Catholic priest Tolkien was an advisor for the translation of the Jerusalem Bible Tolkien once described The Lord of the Rings to his friend Robert Murray, an English Jesuit priest, as a fundamentally religious and Catholic work, unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision There are many theological themes underlying the narrative including the battle of good versus evil, the triumph of humility over pride, and the activity of grace In addition the saga includes themes which incorporate death and immortality, mercy and pity, resurrection, salvation, repentance, self sacrifice, free will, justice, fellowship, authority and healing In addition The Lord s Prayer And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil was reportedly present in Tolkien s mind as he described Frodo s struggles against the power of the One Ring.

    1. The hope for saving Middle-Earth continues!THE FELLOWSHIP IS BROKEN There is some good in this world, and it's worth fighting for.So much for the fellowship made of representative of the races of good in the Middle-Earth with the task of destroying The One Ring in the hellish fires of Mount Doom, located right inside of Sauron’s domains.Members fell, member got tempted by The One Ring, members got trapped, the journey now has two roads and it’s not certain which way is the right one. Maybe n [...]


    2. Another Tolkien review? Yep, I’m putting out another Tolkien review. I’m on a mission, a mission to review everything written by Tolkien. And I literally mean everything. I’ve read most of his works, so I’m starting with those first before I move on to the few I haven’t read (there’s not many).This is all preparation, and a readdress of his writings, before I delve into Christopher Tolkien’s twelve book The History of Middle-Earth later on this year. Yep, I’m that much of a Tolki [...]


    3. A review of Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers by SauronAfter my review of the Fellowship of the Ring, my agent BBMed me and said that people still thought I was a bitter a-hole. He suggested that I learn to deal with my situation by talking with some likeminded people who have faced similar frustration. So he signed me up for Dark Lords and Villains Anonymous. At least that’s what it's called on the website. When I send out a FB invite to my peeps I usually use the subject line "Hatas Beware". [...]


    4. Book ReviewFor as long as I can remember, I have loved serial fiction and saga stories. The Lord of the Rings trilogy and associated books by J.R.R. Tolkien are a treasure. I first found the books when I was 14 and had to re-read again when the movies came out in the last decade or so. The second book, The Two Towers, was a worth follow-up, enhancing every original love I had with the story. I'm generally not a fan of the fantasy genre, and have only read perhaps 20 books in total, less than 3% [...]


    5. Tolkien did not design The Lord of the Rings to be read as three separate books. However, since the book is flawless, there is just no boring moment. Even if you chop it further to 6, 12 or 24 books, I think all of them deserve 5 stars. I am not a big fan of fantasy genre but this one is just over the top. It is about good vs. evil and the nature of evil. With a universal theme like that, the non-stop action, the memorable characters, the extricate design of the fictional world, Middle-Earth and [...]


    6. Herewith Some Notes On My Inaugural Journey Through The Second Volume Of Tolkien's The Lord Of The RingsMe after staying up all night reading The Two TowersI liked The Fellowship Of The Ring, but this book made me love Tolkien’s Middle-Earth epic. Some of the writing is astonishing (see quotes below). The author handles various storylines – the fellowship has scattered, after all – gracefully. And after having two of its main characters (and their slimy guide) spend a lot of time climbing [...]


    7. The Two Towers suffers from the Jan syndrome. It's the middle child, and one that wasn't even meant to exist. Tolkien didn't intend The Lord of the Rings to be a trilogy, but rather one whole book, so inevitably the second volume was doomed to have no true beginning nor a satisfying finish.When I first read it as a teen I didn't enjoy it much at all, and it's still not my favorite of the three, but having read it again recently I warmed to it. It provides an admirably strong bridge between the f [...]


    8. The Two Towers is the second novel of the trilogy The Lord of the Rings. The companions are split to do their own bidding for the cause against darkness that is coming over their world. One group fights Saruman. The other group searches their way to Mordor with the ring's burden. What perils await? Will they come out on top?*Smacks face with book and cries out "I LOVE YOU"*This is one of the greatest novels that I have ever read. I bet everything has been said about this trilogy, so I will try t [...]


    9. Anish: This book is a vast, VAST improvement on the last one!People: Really? And yet you rated it 4 stars while you rated the last one 5 stars! Anish: Yeah well, for me this book had a couple of problemsPeople: Really? Are you even serious? Do you not know what you have just read? Who you've read? Anish: I do know that and it has nothing to do with penmenship but People: For shame, Anish, for shame! What do you have to say for yourself? Anish: This is what I have to sayFirst off, Acknowledgement [...]


    10. En mi opinión, aquí es donde empieza lo duro y la acción de esta travesía. La comunidad del anillo es una introducción de la trama, en sentido de organización, introducción de personajes, etc. Sin embargo, aquí es cuando la cosa se pone más densa, cuando las cosas poco a poco se van transformando en algo cada vez más infernal. Aquí es cuando la comunidad comienza a tener problemas: caen en trampas, tienen riesgo de morir, y están forzados a sacar sus mejores habilidades de superviven [...]


    11. I'm one of very few people in the world that actually really hate the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and 'The Hobbit' as well. I've read 'The Hobbit' twice, trying to capture the second time what I was sure I must have missed the first time round but no. And then I read The Fellowship of the Ring and found Frodo's story to be as drab and long-winded as that of Bilbo. I would have stopped there but my friends told me that I should definitely read this book, promising me great adventure and well-writt [...]


    12. I feel guilty rating this book because I kid you not, I just BARELY absorbed anything in this book. I listened to it on audio, and I was maybe only attentive for 50% of that experience. It doesn't help that my professor gets so off track during class that we never actually discuss what we've read, so I don't have any incentive to read what we've been assigned. This series is definitely something I want to revisit in the future when I'm not skim-reading it out of a 10-pound series bindup and I do [...]


    13. Rereading The Lord of the Rings in German is an interesting exercise; as usual, not knowing the language well and being forced to go slowly makes me notice aspects I missed or skipped over on earlier visits. Two things in particular stood out. First, and I guess this comes from first being exposed to Tolkien at age 10, I had somehow managed to block out the fact that Frodo is obviously gay. I outlined this theory for my friend E, who shares my passion for Scandinavian languages and Middle Earth [...]


    14. Well two down and one to go. One of the first things I have to say about this book is WOW the battle of Helm's Deep was short. Since I saw the movies before reading the books, so much of what I saw is superimposed over the words I'm reading. This is probably the first book series I've read, after seeing the movies, where I feel like seeing the movies helped. I tip my hat to Peter Jackson, personally, after reading the first two parts of the Lord of the Rings, I think he did a fantastic job with [...]


    15. جان رونالد روئل تالکین، در جبهه های جنگ جهانی اول در فرانسه شرکت کرد، در نبرد "سُم" که بیش از یک میلیون نفر در آن کشته و زخمی شدند. و بنا به گفته ی خودش هیچ یک از دوستانش از آن نبرد زنده برنگشتند.تالکین به علت ابتلا به تب خندق، بیماری ای که بین سربازان جنگ جهانی اول که در خندق ها کم [...]


    16. “The cold hard lands, they bites our hands, they gnaws our feet. The rocks and stones are like old bones all bare of meat.But stream and pool is wet and cool: so nice for feet! Get Down!”Yesss, we love rock ‘n’ roll, don’t we, Precious? The nassty hobbitses they hates it. Dust and ashes! Those nassty thieving disco dancing hobbitses, we hates them!I often heard that the LOTR trilogy is one book published as three, I have always thought it was some kind of hyperbole, but no, having just [...]


    17. 2017 (18) Update:Sixth read, best yet. I caught something to figure out. We leave Saruman to Sauron, who believed he saw Frodo in the palantir. He sent winged Nazgul to follow up, but I don't recall hearing anything more of it.I found the summaries enthralling, and am embarrassed to admit I finally found the passage explaining the title. He gives great summaries explaining history, and explains Sarumans Tower copies Saurons, as they both had been set up in better times. The fight with Shelob sca [...]


    18. The second act of the classic Lord Of The Rings saga is divided into two halves; the second half focussing on Frodo, Sam and Gollum and the first half focussing on the rest of the divided fellowship.To be honest, I love this book so much, it's virtually impossible for me to write a balanced review. If you're also a fan, you know exactly what I mean, so I'll leave it there. :-DBuddy read with Sunshine Seaspray.-----------------------------------------------Re-read in 2017: If anything, I love it [...]


    19. “The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.”The quote above is just one reason to get yourself to read this. This was the second part in one of the most-beloved series of every fantasy lover. If you're a person who loves a good adventure, with twists, surprises, great characters, fun & drama then you cannot continue living on this earth [...]


    20. “War must be, while we defend our lives against a destroyer who would devour all; but I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.”4 StarsSooooo I originally said I’d have this review up on the day that I finished it. And I basically did. But like I typed up literally 75% of what was a decently long review, all nicely formatted, only to have my computer glitch out on me, and I lost it a [...]


    21. "It's like in the great stories, Mr Frodo. The ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. And sometimes you didn't want to know the end because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing this shadow. Even darkness must pass."The second volume in The Lord of the Rings, The Two Towers focuses on the disintegration of the Fellowship, as Frodo and Sam go off on their separat [...]


    22. Quickie review: -This book contains my favorite non-fellowship character: Faramir. His family situation is dealt with more in the next book, but the fact that he turned out so good and fair, as shown in this book, makes me just love him. He is badass when necessary and wise when that is necessary, and generally gets to the point with only a minimum of the usual plethora of talk first.- There's one single named woman in this book, and that's Eowyn. She got short shrift in this book, much like Arw [...]



    23. I love the LOTR books and there are no words I can use to describe the beauty of the prose and the beautiful, absolutely stupendous wordplay that's been used to create life like imagery. Seriously, there is a reason why LOTR series is considered the finest work of the 20th century. There is no parallel to it. It has inspired generations of writers and will continue to do so for many centuries to come. Before I get to my favourite phrases from Book 4 and 5 or ‘The Two Towers’, a few lines abo [...]


    24. I'm not sure why it took me so long to finally pick up Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings; I love fantasy and this is such a godfather read in that genre, as with its sub-genres. Every time a movie would come out a distant clonk would crash about in my head as a reminder that I should dive into the books at some point but our paths just never crossed at the right time. Either I was reading something else or I took a moment to stand in front of the books at the library, quietly intimidated with wher [...]



    25. Don't go where I can't follow- dearest Samwise Gamgee یه کتاب دیگه مونده و از همین حالا دلتنگم دلتنگ سم‌وایز گمجی، گندالف، آراگورن، و همه و همه ی دوست داشتنی های دنیای ارباب حلقه ها.خرداد 96


    26. 2- Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers NotesThe first thing you will notice that Tolkien separated this part into two different books each one include a separated path the first path follows Aragorn , Legolas , Gimli - Gandalf -Merry and Pippinthe second one follows Frodo , Sam and Smeagolthe problem is that separation makes the first book so exciting and full of events while the second is so boring Many PerspectivesA new thing here we started to see the story from many perspectives such as: Ga [...]


    27. Final: 4.65Creo que es un libro maravilloso, pero debo reconocer que las partes de Frodo y Sam han sido aburridas para mi y, pienso que la forma de narración está mejor puesta en pantalla grande.


    28. ‘The Lord of the Rings’: John Ronald Reuel Tolkien’s three volume masterpiece comprising ‘The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and The Return of the King’ – is quite simply a literary, artistic and intellectual creation and achievement of epic and monumental proportions.The stories that J. R. R. Tolkien has crafted to produce ‘The Lord of the Rings’ feel as though they have been carved out of stone. Tolkien’s creation of another world – Middle Earth, its history, its le [...]
