    "Fantastic story that is timeless!"

    Tarzan of the apes is a timeless story that lives through the ages! The fact that this novel was written in 1912 and is still amazing and thrilling 2017 speaks to the greatness of ER Burroughs. The story is great and leaves you wanting more.

    Story
    "Like being a kid again."

    I am a Edgar Rice Bourghs fan. I totally enjoyed hearing this story rather than reading it or watching a movie. I could get into the feel of story more and really loved it.

    Story
    "The story is cool, the Narrator it was atrocious"

    I've always wanted to read this book, but never found the time. It is not what you see in the movies. There's a lot of fun listening to it, seeing the differences of what I've seen before. I can see how this became such a popular series back in the day.

    Warning: Alan Munro is a horrid narrator pausing at the wrong times, his accents are terrible, he sounds like a computer more than a person. Get a different version of this. Without him being the narrator!
    You have been warned! This is my second book with him, they're both this bad, and I've read both of the books!

    Story
    "The ending is very abruptl"

    But I guess Burroughs understood the idea of a sequel.
    After all these years of Tarzan movies and TV shows, it was nice to read the original.
    Good story. Poor narrator.

    Story
    "Difficult to get over the reading"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this version as the reading is extremely distracting. It appears as if the narrator did not understand the work. The reading is disjointed, there are bizarre and inappropriate pauses and stresses that are out of context. In addition, some words are mis-pronounced.
    I understand that nobody is perfect, especially me, but I would expect the production team, or someone, to have picked this up.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Alan Munro’s performances?

    Definitely not. This performance had a hugely detrimental effect on my enjoying and even understanding the story.


    Did Tarzan of the Apes inspire you to do anything?

    I would purchase more Tarzan stories.
