Lord of the Rings Volume 2 – The Two Towers

“Where now are the horse and the rider? Where is the horn that was blowing?
Where is the helm and the hauberk, and the bright hair flowing?
Where is the harp on the harpstring, and the red fire glowing?
Where is the spring and the harvest and the tall corn growing?
They have passed like rain on the mountain, like a wind in the meadow;
The days have gone down in the West behind the hills into shadow.
Who shall gather the smoke of the deadwood burning,
Or behold the flowing years from the Sea returning?”

I’ve finished Book 1 and taken a breather and decided to start Book 2. It’s as amazing as the first one and so well written! The two towers discussed in the title are none other than Saruman’s lair and Sauron’s eye-tower. The movie tie-in edition that I have was perfect to depict the other tower well into distance.

Lord of the Rings Volume 1 – The Fellowship of the Ring

It’s been a long time waiting but it’s finally happened. I’ve started reading Lord Of The Rings and I can’t be happier! The books are epic and there is so much more in them compared to the movies. I have watched all three movies, extended editions, multiple times and I have had marathons over the weekends spanning more than 12h of content. But I’ve never read (so far) the books that made it all possible.

So let us go on this journey together and I can tell you why this book is by far one of my favourites to date.

“Home is behind, the world ahead,
and there are many paths to tread
through shadows to the edge of night,
until the stars are all alight.”
