This book is called a "children's photo guide to The Two Towers" and therefore the writing is aimed at younger fans of the film. This does not mean that us 'older' fans would not enjoy it either, but the language used is much simpler.
The story of The Two Towers film is told simply and clearly. There are well chosen quotes from the film, often conveying how the character was feeling, placed underneath photographs of them. As with all these official guides, these photos are fantastic. There are also stickers of the main characters from the film (except Gollum) at the end of the book.
Obviously, the detail is not as deep as some of the other books on offer, but this is a very good book to have as a reminder of the film and an excellent photo guide.

Here is my basic but hopefully interesting review!!!
This book has amazing pictures and is no full of writing.
The pictures are of all the main points in the film, so it shows a lot of pictures that you may not want to see if you want to not spoil it for yourself. The only thing lacking in this book is more descriptions on events and battles etc.
It tells the story of the second installment very clearly and easily. It introduces all the characters and for under a fiver this book is a must get.
