Publisher's Summary

This is the third story in the Tarzan adventure series. This venture into the wild kingdom thrusts Jane into the thickest of demoniacal plots as Tarzan’s nemesis, the dark and swarthy Rokoff and his rat-like lieutenant capture her with the intention of wreaking vengeance on Tarzan. But Tarzan assembles an awesome rescue squad; Mugambi, a giant native from the jungle who becomes the devoted follower and protector of Tarzan; Sheeta, a sleek and powerful black panther longing to apply fang and claw to those who would harm Jane; and the entire tribe of Akut, of the great apes, enraged and eager.

Exceptionally disappointing

What would have made The Beasts of Tarzan better?

Better production and a different narrator. Paper shuffling in the background, and the loud breathing of the narrator is very distracting. However the major downfall of this recording is the narrator who is frequently tripping over his own tongue and whose style is often out of tune with the context and content.

If you’ve listened to books by Edgar Rice Burroughs before, how does this one compare?

I've listened to the first two in the series, each with different narrators, and they were both far superior to this one.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Sharp?

David Ian Davies or Robert Whitfield

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Edgar Rice Burroughs is an outstanding author, and the story might have been very good, but the narration was so distracting, I couldn't tell.

Poor reader

David Sharp has trouble pronouncing certain words. He also speaks as if everything were constantly exciting and doesn't let the story dictate his tone of voice. It gets very wearisome listening to him for any length of time.
