This review is from: Tarzan of the Apes (Kindle Edition)
I think that like most people I first read this as a schoolboy, and come back to it through the years as I have grown up. Lets be honest and admit that it isn't perfect and has a number of 'problems', but as a good old adventure yarn that is an ideal piece of escapism, then you can't but not like this.
I think that everyone must know the basics of the tale, who Tarzan's parents were and how he was brought up. Edgar Rice Burroughs struck gold with this piece of fiction, writing many more Tarzan stories and causing a whole host of imitators to spring up because of its popularity. The quality of the stories do differ immensely though. Apart from one group of short stories this particular book and Return of Tarzan are arguably the best.
If you have never read this before, then why not immerse yourself in a new world? Or if you have read it before, relax and take in the story again.
