Product Description

Review

'The Andy Briggs reboot of Tarzan is one of the best updates I can recall seeing of any classic series ... A stunning ending which left me absolutely desperate to read book 3 ... one which young and old alike will love.' 4.5/5 stars --The Bookbag

'This is a exciting and fast-moving adventure, offering young readers plenty of thrills. Tarzan is a man of few words but much action and Jane is no wallflower, so this tale should appeal to both boys and girls.' --Booktrust

Book Description

The world's greatest eco-warrior is back for another white-knuckle adventure!

More About the Author

Andy was commissioned to officially reboot TARZAN - bringing a fresh take to the beloved Edgar Rice Burroughs character for a new generation of readers. He started writing on movie projects such as "JUDGE DREDD and "FREDDY VS JASON" and "FOREVERMAN" for Spiderman creator Stan Lee and legendary producer Robert Evans.

Andy went on to work on Warner Bros. "AQUAMAN" - while at the same time landing an eight-book deal with Oxford University Press for "HERO.COM" and "VILLAIN.NET". His childhood love of comics continues as he writes them - his first graphic novel RITUAL published by Markosia Comics, aimed for mature readers, while DINOCORPS is his latest, which is action-packed fun for all ages!

Currently he's working on numerous screenplays and getting ready to produce his first feature film.

TARZAN: THE GREYSTOKE LEGACY is the first of the new, officially rebooted, Tarzan titles - with TARZAN: THE JUNGLE WARRIOR launched during the Tarzan centenary and TARZAN: THE SAVAGE LANDS in 2013!

4.0 out of 5 stars Not just another reboot 29 April 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There is a almost constant stream of old classics being given a new look. This is one of them - but it works rather well. Tarzan has cargo pants on and is a fierce protector of his threatened jungle home. Jane is here the daughter of an illegal logger and the issues of life in the DRC are referenced but not laboured. It is a good read for an able reader - but be aware, there is a lot of violence here. Somehow what we routinely accept on screen, seems more visceral on paper.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant sequel to an amazing book 4 Dec 2012
By Thomas
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the first book and did just as much with this one. In this adrenaline-rushing story, the world's most famous hunter captures Karnath, a small gorilla friend of Tarzan. Tarzan, Robbie and Jane find themselves in a perilous rescue mission in a race against time to save young Karnath, even if it means introducing Tarzan to the city for the first time and taking the risks.

This book is, like the first one, full of heat-pounding, climactic action that makes you never take your eye off the page. The villains in this one are menacing and believable and make you wish that hunting for sport and money never existed.

I was hooked from the moment I read the first chapter of Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy, as with this one and cannot wait for the third installment in the Andy Briggs Tarzan saga.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a jungle out there! 3 Oct 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its great to have a Tarzan book back on the shelves but nevertheless disappointing that its supposed to be for kids. Neither is it the Tarzan we know from the Burroughs character created 100 years ago. how updated need jungle character be? Surely a jungle is a jungle despite the destruction Man inflicting upon the forests! Surely there are still animals still out there we have never seen and ruins of civilizations yet to be discovered. so this missive is a disappointment so is a good companion volume to the Tarzan book that disappointed last year!

2.0 out of 5 stars Thed Ape-man Falters 14 Dec 2012
By Flogles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A disappointing Tarzan interpretation. I have read both of Andy Briggs novels on this subject and I realize that they were written with adolescent boys and I suspect girls as the target audience. Burroughs, the originator of the Tarzan stories wrote in the plulp magazine style of his day for adult males but his many stories had lasting and great appeal to young boys. I don't believe that the Briggs version captures this same spirit of adventure. The Tarzan in these stories more closely resembles the Weismuller movie depiction in both story plotting and character development. It leaves a true Burroughs fan unsatisfied.
For a more authentic Tarzan read "Jane, The Woman Who Loved Tarzan" by Robin Maxwell.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good sequel 2 Dec 2012
By October15 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed "Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy" very much so picked up the sequel. It's still on track to be a good series. I really liked the flashback to Tarzan's meeting with D'Arnot,and it's breaking my heart that he's dead because he would have been such a great character to have in the story: an adult who actually cared about Tarzan instead of trying to use him for financial gain or murder him (which is basically every other adult in the story thus far). The first book's villains were rebel soldiers and this time around it's the more stereotypical poachers that turn up in a lot of African-based stories for younger readers. But it still worked quite well, though I thought riding the zebras was too far. Riding Tantor, yes, he's Tarzan's elephant, but Tarzan doesn't rule the savannah so how would they gain control over zebras? Jane and Tarzan fell more into the background than I would have liked by times: they are the two main characters, so give them more on-page time. The book ends on a cliffhanger so hopefully a sequel will be forthcoming. While I could find many similarities and homages to the original "Tarzan of the Apes" in the first book in this series, I have not yet read "The Return of Tarzan" so can't say if some of my issues with the second book stem from Burroughs's story as well. The book still gets an "A" from me for the D'Arnot stuff, Jane, who is still a great character, and Tarzan himself. Though could the third-person talk be dropped?

4.0 out of 5 stars A good sequel 16 Oct 2012
By Brewski2010 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The second book in Andy Briggs Tarzan series carries on the story of Tarzan in a modern jungle, dealing with the problems and perils of today's Africa. Tarzan is Tarzan. This reboot is faithfull to the spirit of the ape-man as written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, but it deals with issues that will attract young readers. It is interesting and well written. I hope it is well received by young readers today.

By ernie muresko - Published on Amazon.com

I'm really glad the the ERB foundation gave permission to allow new adventures of Tarzan set in modern times. Even with this series aimed at a younger audience this book can be enjoyed by readers of all ages. Also hats off to the folks at Amazon because they are the only source to purchase the great new series.
