The second part of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure THE LORD OF THE RINGS
The company of the Ring is torn asunder. 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.
This continues the classic tale begun in The Fellowship of the Ring, which reaches its awesome climax in The Return of the King.
'An extraordinary book. It deals with a stupendous theme. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent, in a region where everything is invented, forest, moor, river, wilderness, town and the races which inhabit them.'
'Among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century.'
'A story magnificently told, with every kind of colour and movement and greatness'
