What made the experience of listening to Tarzan of the Apes the most enjoyable?
What did you like best about this story?
I like this story as written better than any of the movie versions, and so I'm not sure why none of the films since the 80s follow the original story more faithfully. Honestly the Disney animated version seems to come closest. Understanding what happened to Tarzan's parents, how they came to be marooned etc. is really great. The way Tarzan becomes 'domesticated' and how he learns to read and speak English is charming. The way Tarzan is painted as much more a beast while living in the jungle raised by the apes also adds complexity to this character always depicted in film as being a fairly two dimensional character. I highly recommend this original story to anyone who enjoys the idea of Tarzan.
Did Benjamin May do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
Character differentiation was fair, at times he loses the professor and defaults to a Clayton voice. His Jane could use some work as well. The one main issue with this reader isn't voice quality or inflection but rather that he says 'Greystroke' interchangeably with 'Greystoke'.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
There are many moments that make this story hard to put down. It is thrilling!
