        well it got confusing



        and all these funny unpronanceable names, it flashed to different "structures" but there was no actually mention of towers!!



        saw the big one with the eye on the top, and there were some big mountains too, were they towers?

          The two towers in question are:



          - Isengard, which is where Saruman lives ( the man who was flooded out by Treebeard and the Ents), and



          - Minas Tirith, the chief city of Gondor (where Boromir and Faramir come from) - but of course, is really Striders home



          Hope that helps? :lol: :blink:



          There were tales of adventures in both, hence "The Two Towers".

            Ah, that is Mordor: home of Sauron.

                  No you didn't vernon: you said one was where the "naughty white wizard" was, that's right, that's Saruman.



                  Beth,



                  Tolkein wrote the LOTR in three parts, the second part of the trilogy was called The Two Towers.



                  The "Eye" of Sauron is watching throughout the whole of the films - he wants his ring back (sorry, this sounds very funny at this time of night after three glasses of wine :lol: . Did anyone see the French and Saunders take on LOTR for the Christmas special last year? Funny :lol: :hihi: :lol: ).



                  Sauron in Mordor just IS. Until the ring is destroyed and he's beaten.



                  Isengard was flooded during The Two Towers. Minas Tirith has a big part to play in The Return of the King. As does Mordor (of course), and Mount Doom in particular.



                  Can't wait to see Shelob - she's given me nightmares since I was seven!

                    take your word on it!





                    Arise Arise, riders of Theoden

                    fell deads awake: fire and slaughter

                    spear shall be shaken, shield shall be splintered,

                    a sword-day, a red day, ere the sun rises

                    ride now, ride now, ride to Gondor!
