    "Just as I remembered"
    Would you listen to Tarzan Of The Apes again? Why?

    I read this series many years ago when I was a wee tyke. I thoroughly enjoyed it then, and I wondered if it still would be as entertaining for me now. It is indeed, and the reader does a good job which helps make it so. I will listen to this again.


    What about David Sharp’s performance did you like?

    He has a great accent and it fits the time of the story.

    "Classic but dated"
    Would you try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs and/or David Sharp?

    Yes, It's a light and fun story. It's also interesting in that it is so iconic.
