The Two Towers, J.R.R. Tolkien -

I read The Hobbit and the LOTR trilogy when I was a kid, I think around the time Iw as in 7th grade. I'd forgotten what an incredible story, and how well-written the trilogy is. After a slow start (it took me a little while to get used to Tolkien's style), I tore through this book. It's just an incredible tale. Up there with The Odyssey or The Aeneid in terms of classical myth making. Positively awe-inspiring. Frodo Lives, yo.
