HASH(0xa1bbb594) out of 5 stars A MUST Buy! Perfect for fans of all ages. 7 Nov. 2002
By Marcy G. - Published on
Format: Paperback
Don't be fooled by the back cover that states "the official children's photo guide to The Two Towers." This great book is full of amazing photos from the upcoming Lord of the Rings film to delight fans of all ages!
The book itself is set up in a narrative style, which goes through the general movie plot with accompanying pictures. For instance, in the part where Merry and Pippin encounter the Ents, we are treated with a full-page picture of Treebeard (in all his glory!) holding Merry and Pippin.
The book has pictures of all the major (and minor) characters and locations in the film, including Theoden, Gollum, Faramir, Aragorn, Legolas, Frodo, Gandalf the White, the Warg Riders and Easterlings, as well as Osgiliath, Ithilien, Edoras, Helms Deep and Fangorn Forest.
One word of caution, however: This book goes through the general plot of the movie and also reveals where changes were made from the book. So if you want SPOILERS, this is the book for you! However, if you want to remain spoiler-free (at least until the film arrives), then quickly browse through the book but do not read it!
Of the 4 movie tie-in books that were recently released (The Two Towers Visual Companion, Two Towers Creature Guide and The Making of the Movie Trilogy), this is the BEST in terms of Two Towers-related pictures. The Visual Companion comes a close second. If you want behind the scenes info, then pick up The Making of the Movie Trilogy as well. The books go hand-in-hand with very little overlap in terms of content.

HASH(0xa1bbbaa4) out of 5 stars Very slim 12 Dec. 2002
By Calibandar - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book shouldn't be overrated. It's nice to see the storyline of the second film presented in it, and it has a couple of nice pics. But that's it. The commentary is absulutely worthless and adds nothing unless you're a complete Tolkien novice. Very much a children's book, I bought it for the film storyline (which once again deviates significantly from the books at certain parts) and some stunning pics, of which there are but a few. And the storyline of the film will be known to all soon anyway so it's only merit post-TTT release will be a few nice pics.
Gary Russell's Art of the Fellowship of the Ring would be a much more worthwhile purchase. I wonder if he'll do another one for TTT and RoTK...

HASH(0xa1ec25e8) out of 5 stars Very nice! 7 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is very visually pleasing, but the text that accompanies the pictures is a little elementary. I think it is geared towards a younger crowd than the other TTT books. I DO reccommend buying it if you are an avid Tolkien fan and are looking forward to the movie. It contains many beautiful, never before seen pictures! It does contain spoilers, though, because there is a brief plot description that accompanies the photos...

HASH(0xa1bc2150) out of 5 stars Good book for younger viewers 2 Mar. 2003
By E. A Solinas - Published on
Format: Paperback
Whether or not smaller kids will get to go to "The Two Towers" depends on their parents, given that this movie is frightening and violent and quite creepy in places. And even if they do go, some kis may be a little confused by the complex storyline. And, of course, adults who need to see the pictures.
It's basically a picture book, the events of the Two Towers and what happens to Sam and Frodo, who were last seen heading into Mordor; Merry and Pippin, who are kidnapped by orcs and receive some unexpected help; and Legolas, Aragorn and Gimli, who are pursuing Merry and Pippin, but are waylaid by an old friend whom they thought was lost. Be forewarned, this book is crawling over with spoilers about what happens in the movie.
The pictures in this guide are outstanding; most of them aren't featured in the other "Two Towers" guides coming out at this time. And many are captioned with various lines from the movie (such as a photo with Frodo and Sam, which is captioned with "What is it, Mr. Frodo?" "Nothing. Just a dream.") There are good photographs of old favorites such as Frodo Baggins, Samwise Gamgee, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Merry, and Pippin. There are also good shots of Gandalf in his new incarnation, the majestic ent Treebeard (a fantastic shot of a priceless character), the noble Theoden, the grotesque Gollum, and many others. The only problem I can think of is that a few of the shots never appeared in the movie, such as one pic of Frodo holding his cupped hand in front of his shirt, and Faramir watching him. And as with the "Fellowship" photo guide, some of the pictures are rather small.
Despite these minor problems, this is a good book for the "Lord of the Rings" movie fans, especially the younger ones who might need a few pointers, or the older ones who love photographs. This one has very little in common with the other "Two Towers" movie-related books, and it's worth a look.

HASH(0xa1bc2564) out of 5 stars Good for pre-movie viewing, but pretty worthless after 17 Mar. 2003
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
It's a good book, don't get me wrong. There's some magnificent pictures from the second installment in New Line's The Lord of the Rings trilogy. It's the whole movie plot simplified.
But this book is only worth something before the movie. Afterward, it just loses its luster. Since you've already seen the movie, why look at the pictures again?
Nonetheless, there are some interesting items that take place in the book that give some hints as to what some extended material for The Two Towers' extended release will be. (For instance, the plot line about Aragorn releasing Theodred's horse Brego, which rescues him in the movie after the Warg battle. In the movie, the horse just showed up, without prior mention of it)
There's also (at least in ours) a page of stickers in the back of the book, but since there's only one to a character, no one wants to remove them from the page.
