    Literally just helps you keep track of what is going on and to whom in the movie. Some side notes are made and for those who didn't read the trilogy before the movie it can clear up some things.

    The strength of this book is in its source. Being that the source is one of the best and most visually masterful films ever made, this should be hard to screw up. That saying, though it is better than the edition created for Fellowship, there doesn't feel like there is a great deal of heart or effort added to this book beyond the formatting of the beautiful imagery from the films.

Still, even if only a cynical cash grab hanging on the coat tails of the film, it is an impressive and beautiful collection of stills that give the reader opportunity to appreciate design and costume in ways the pictures in motion simply do not allow. The accompanying text is adequate, and does include details not present in the films. In all, a nice reflection and companion on the story and on Peter Jackson's adaptation.

    3 🌟 I am a major fan of the Lord of The Rings which made this kind of "boring". I loved it but I didn't enjoy my time as much as I had liked. This is a nice companion for those who either fell asleep while watching the film OR simply couldn't keep up. 3 🌟 I am a major fan of the Lord of The Rings which made this kind of "boring".

    Beautiful foreword by Viggo Mortensen. My only small criticism is that more prosaic attention could have been paid to the battle of Helm's Deep (which received exceptional visual attention).

    Another fun and entertaining read! The Two Towers Visual Companion follows the three distinct story arcs found in the film after the breaking of the Fellowship: the Ring Quest, the Captives' Journey, and the Companions' Journey. The Ring Quest follows Frodo and Sam as they traverse the landscape closer to Mount Doom with the creature Gollum in fast pursuit of his "Precious." After passing through the Dead Marshes, they come to Ithilien and meet Boromir's younger brother, Faramir. The Captives' J Another fun and entertaining read!

The Ring Quest follows Frodo and Sam as they traverse the landscape closer to Mount Doom with the creature Gollum in fast pursuit of his "Precious." After passing through the Dead Marshes, they come to Ithilien and meet Boromir's younger brother, Faramir. The Captives' Journey travels with Merry and Pippin as they escape their band of Uruk-hai captors only to find themselves in Fangorn Forest. Here they make an unexpected friendship with Treebeard the Ent, the wise guardian and tree-herder of the forests who has been alive for thousands of years. The Companions' Journey follows Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli as they track the Uruk-hai in pursuit of their friends, Merry and Pippin. Their journey takes them into Fangorn Forest, where they meet with Gandalf the White, who rides with them to Edoras, home of the Horse-lords of Rohan. My favorite part of the book was learning about Eowyn, Eomer, and the Rohirrim. I would love to ride one of the magnificent horses of Rohan, which are known for their excellent blood-lines, speed, agility, and courage in battle. Edoras is such a beautiful settlement. I sure wish I could visit it in real life! The small section on Shadowfax, the Chief of the Mearars, was a special highlight for me as well. Wonderful photos are found throughout this fun book. The last pages contain an exclusive fold-out battle plan of Helm's Deep, which I enjoyed a lot! Definitely an entertaining read for all Middle Earth fans!

    I picked this up recently from a local shop as I'm really nuts about Lord of the Rings and I didn't previously have this book. I thought it went into good detail about the characters and some of their motives, and there also were a lot of beautiful photographs. I love the scenery in New Zealand anyway, so appreciated the backdrops of a lot of the photos and the horses, like Shadowfax, were lovely.

The prose was really well-written and this book is something I know that I will return to a lot in the future.

    This was a quick read before going to bed :) I really liked it a lot. A lot of pictures, huge ones, too, a map, a map of the battle at helm's deep to fold out.. really nice extras that made me enjoy this book a lot. The reason why I dropped one star to the five is this: In the beginning the book was chronological but then afterwards dropped this and just explained important parts of the story. More consistency would have been nice. But apart from that a great visual companion to the movie. This was a quick read before going to bed :) I really liked it a lot.

    This book's review simply cannot rest on it's content as it's a visual companion. It explains the movie and enlightens some parts about the movie. We get to learn more about places and people. The book is well written but if you're an allknowing Tolkien-lover, you'll learn nothing new, nevertheless, it's worth a read. http://piratesbookreviews.blogspot.be...

    This is a pretty book with lots of nice shots from the film, and sections on each of the major characters and plot points. Nice to look at. I think I got this from the great book give-away at work a couple years back.

    Frodo's perilous journey continues and he finally meets Gollum. While the rest of the Fellowship make allies and reconnects with Gandalf. I am still a fan of the series and JRR Tolkein, sorry not Jude Fisher (selected wrong author). Frodo's perilous journey continues and he finally meets Gollum.

    It was just what you would expect from a visual companion. It retold the story in simpler terms and explained a few scenes. It was a fast read and a quick refresher of the movie.

    A simple little book, not meant to be comprehensive, but to tease viewers on the (then) upcoming Twin Towers film. It's colorful, interesting, and an easy read. I quite enjoyed it.
