The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien
My name is Judah and I am in the 6th grade. I enjoy playing soccer and baseball. In the winter, I enjoy Nordic and alpine skiing. When it comes to reading, adventure books are my favorite.
The Two Towers is the second book in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy written by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is an exciting and entertaining book that includes hobbits, dwarfs, elves, men and much more. The Two Towers takes place in a mythical land called Middle Earth. Frodo, Sam, Marry and Pippin are the hobbits. Aragorn is a man. Legolas is an Elf. Gimli is a Dwarf and Gandalf is the wizard. Together, they form the fellowship of the ring. Their mission is to destroy the evil dark lord Sauron and his ring that gives him his power. If Sauron gets the ring, he can use it to rule Middle Earth.
Frodo and Sam split up from the fellowship to go to Mordor alone on a secret mission without being detected by Sauron and his evil eye. Frodo and Sam’s quest is to return the ring to its place of origin which is the middle of Mordor to the deep scorching lava cracks in Mount Doom, as this is the only place the ring can be destroyed.
Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, and Gandalf set off on their own mission. Their mission is to restore Aragorn as the king of Gondor, a region of Middle Earth, of which he is the rightful hidden heir to the throne.
This is my favorite book because it is packed with action and detailed descriptions. The author uses very descriptive words that depict places and characters in such a vivid way that the reader feels like they are a part of the story. I recommend this book for ages ten and up as it is a fun, exiting and enjoyable book.
