Audible Editor Reviews

If you like vivid flights of fancy, Edgar Rice Burroughs is your man. The famed author of the Tarzan series paints with a broad brush on a large canvas. Here we find Lord Greystoke, formerly Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle, abiding in London with a wife and an unruly teenaged son, Jack. Like his father, Jack has an incurable attraction to the wild, and we find him fleeing civilization to hone his skills deep in the African jungle. The story is rife with savage adventure in which the law of the jungle is played out by tribes of apes, trappers, poachers, and kidnappers. This is a coming-of-age story rippling with action and romance. Shelly Frasier does a creditable job, but some production problems - volume shifts and popping "p's" - mar the listen.
