Audible Editor Reviews

Raised by apes, John Clayton falls desperately in love with the first woman he sees: Jane Porter. Edgar Rice Burroughs' first Tarzan novel, Tarzan of the Apes, was such a hit that he continued to publish sequels for decades. Numerous adaptations prove the public's love for Tarzan and Jane. Shelly Frasier, with impeccable diction, performs this audiobook with longing and adventure in her voice. Employing a range of pitches and a gentle pace, Frasier draws in the listener. Certainly, Frasier gives this story the wild, romantic feel it deserves.

Publisher's Summary

Born of noble stock to parents marooned on the savage West African coast, the young Lord Greystoke is orphaned in his first year of life. Named Tarzan by the great apes that raise him, he must learn the law of the jungle to survive. As he matures, his strength and agility develop to match those of the beasts by whom he is surrounded, yet he realizes he is different. He combines higher intelligence, superhuman strength, and his jungle training to become the unconquerable Lord of the Jungle! But when a group of civilized people invade his paradise, his life is changed forever, for with them is Jane, the first woman Tarzan has ever seen. Now he must have her as his own! How can this uncivilized ape-man hope to win her?

    "This is not the movies."

    The story is so much better than any movie adaptation. There is a reason for the popularity of the series. Wonderfull presentation by Ms. Faser. The story kept my attention to the end.

    "Great story, dry reading"

    If one can look past the racism of the story (both toward African savages and the African-American servant), this is an entertaining and moving story. The British reader narrated beautifully but did a poor job on the American voices, making it difficult to distinguish among the golden-haired Jane, her pedantic professor father, and her cowardly and foolish mammy.
