A Good Romp Through The... Kingdom

This was a typical Burroughs tale where paths always cross by chance, all the men are no mean warriors and all the women are the perfect 10.

But it is still fun and entertaining to read/listen. David Stifel did a very good job with the voices on this book.

Come on. You know you loved Burroughs before. His work is still great escapism now.

My favorite Burroughs book.

many people see the similarity between the Prisoner of Zenda and this book, The Mad King. But I love this book far more because you get a happy ending.
