This review is from: Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (Hardcover)
I find it very pathetic that so many of you Tolkien fans out there wrote so much about the first book and not the second. So many bad reviews came in for The Fellowship of the Rings; who would even want to come to this page?! I think this book is AWESOME! Tolkien is a genius. I love how he takes time to develop each persons character. Some say that the characters are flat and two-dimentional, but if you think that, *you're* two-dimentional!! The 'heroes' have flaws (even Aragorn), the antagonists have their good qualities (however few). Particularly, this is where we get some really good insight into the characters of Gimli and Legolas. Fellowship is a good start, but this is the best for characterization because by Return of the King you already know what everyone is like. That's what makes this book good, apart from the absolute wonder of the trilogy as a whole.
