Just as much fun as the first book!
Ugh. I read this book because I started with Tarzan of the Apes, not knowing that there would be no resolution with the first book. Knowing I was being sucked into a soap opera vortex, I picked up the sequel. The writing was abysmal. This read like a comic book - every scene there was Tarzan, unleashing is jungle-forged ferocious strength with his rippling muscles, vanquishing bad guys and then releasing the primal ululation that marked the alpha primate of his tribe. Good grief. The story arc started in Tarzan of the Apes was resolved, so I am able to exit left from this series and decline to find out about the Son of Tarzan. You would do well to just steer clear of the entire series. Nota bene: the Disney movie reboot released Summer 2016 did a great job of combining many main elements of both books, tinkering with some major details for flow, and thus delivered a great action flick, if not with a somewhat simple plot. How can the movie help that, though, with ERB's simplistic books as its basis?
