Andy Briggs is not ERB but neither are these times the early 20s when a lot of the Tarzan books were first written. I find myself trying to put the character of the Ape-man of my imagination into the the Briggs story and find that Tarzan just isn't in the story enough.
It is fantastic to be reading a Tarzan book again, long may the series continue.
The author transposes the story to the present, and it loses most of its charm. For instance, he takes the liberty of changing the princess La into an American woman lost in Africa and who became mad.
There is action, but the characters are uninteresting and not solid.

And, just for the record, Burroughs did use gorillas in his books, but they were called the "Bolgani." nothing like Tarzan's adopted family.
If you want to read about Tarzan, the author to look for is Edgar Rice Burroughs. Don't waste your time with this watered down, inaccurate crap.
In many ways, I like the idea of a rebooted Tarzan, with modern technology and such. In execution, Andy Briggs' THE SAVAGE LANDS didn't do anything more for me than the original. I did like that Jane is very active in the series. Why, the first thing she does is save a man with a well-timed machete swing. You can certainly try this book with the young action/adventure fan in your life.
(I started in the middle of the series because I read this for an awards panel. My opinion does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the panel.)
