I had never read or listened to the original Tarzan story until now - it's very captivating. I really liked how ERB mixes the timeline to show what various characters are doing at the same time. However, as much as I enjoyed the story, David Ian Davies and One Voice Recordings have produced a very low quality audiobook. Editing is horrible as mistakes are corrected with spliced in audio. The voice Davies uses for Esmeralda is his voice inconsistently sped up! His pronunciations are off - he used the American pronunciation for guillotine when it was a French character who spoke it! He called the French city of Lyons "lions".
There are two other audiobook versions of this novel available at audible.com. I recommend you stay away from this one and choose one of the others
