The Return of Tarzan | [Edgar Rice Burroughs]

The Return of Tarzan

Tarzan had renounced his right to the woman he loved, and civilization held no pleasure for him. After a brief and harrowing period among men, he turned back to the African jungle where he had grown to manhood. It was there he first heard of Opar, the city of gold, left over from fabled Atlantis. It was a city of hideous men - and of beautiful, savage women, over whom reigned La, high priestess of the Flaming God. Its altars were stained with the blood of many sacrifices. Unheeding of the dangers, Tarzan led a band of savage warriors toward the ancient crypts and the more ancient evil of Opar.

    "Enjoyable and Entertaining"
    What made the experience of listening to The Return of Tarzan the most enjoyable?

    The interaction of charactes and wild animals.


    What other book might you compare The Return of Tarzan to and why?

    This series is one of a kind and impossible to compare to other books


    Have you listened to any of Robert Whitfield’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Very easy to listen to. Speach clear and strong.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Neither. It took me back to my childhood when I searched all the book stores with my father because the libraries banned the books.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm happy to have the chance to enjoy the books, this time in audio form.

    "Old Story/Varied Plot"
    Would you try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs and/or Robert Whitfield?

    No particularly....the British accent rather turned me off and I didn't find myself waiting for another boring descriptive scene. The narrator's delivery was a turn-off..


    What was most disappointing about Edgar Rice Burroughs’s story?

    The delivery of the age old story - even the dangerous scenes did not elicit any emotion.


    What three words best describe Robert Whitfield’s voice?

    monotonous, boring, unexciting


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Too uneventful protrayal of what should have been breathtaking scenes for me. I was disappointed.l

    Story
    "Another Great Tale of Tarzan of the Apes!"

    "The Return of Tarzan" is the second in his series of books about the title character Tarzan, with the first book edition published in 1915. The novel picks up where Tarzan of the Apes left off, and is equally exciting.

    In "The Return of Tarzan", Tarzan learns that he is the true Lord Greystoke, but does not claim his title, because of his love for Jane, who has promised to wed Tarzan's cousin William Cecil Clayton. Clayton inherited the title, Lord Greystoke, when Tarzan's mother and father were declared dead. If Tarzan took his rightful place as Lord Greystoke, it would leave Clayton penniless, and Jane would suffer without money--so Tarzan walks away.

    Disappointment in love, Tarzan returns to the jungle where he has many strange adventures--even before Tarzan reaches his jungle home, events take him to places he never knew existed...there's ocean cruises, Paris, desert adventures, spying for the French Secret Service, beautiful women, lost cities. etc., etc.

    Tarzan makes an enemy of the powerful Russian, Nikolas Rokoff, who dogs his trail plotting and planning his demise. The action-packed gripping scenes and nasty villains are easily visualized due to Burrough's wonderful storytelling, and Robert Whitfield's great performance. The many twists and turns the story takes keep you riveted, unable to stop listening.

    I've thoroughly enjoyed books 1 & 2 and highly recommend them. They really should be read in sequence.
