I was hesitant to give up a credit for this. I mean it IS a Tarzan story. But I am so glad I did. This story goes much further than the old one dimensional Tarzan movies: “Me Tarzan, You Jane” with the cannibal natives and some guy in a loin cloth wrestling tigers and alligators. The story is clever, thoughtful, entertaining and suspenseful without being over the top. I am sure that fans of the Outlander series and Davina Porter will especially enjoy the story and Susan Crowley’s excellent, though at times, emotional narration. Two thumbs up for this great adventure.

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?
The worst book I have purchased. The female narrator shouts loudly everytime she speaks the words of the father. Utterly confusing, it starts with Jane giving a lecture in America, jumps to her sitting in a huge nest up a tree in West Africa then to a lab in Cambridge. I gave up and returned the book.

I really enjoyed this book. I loved that Jane was strong and independent, I loved that a lot of the political landscape of the Times was incorporated, even if it was not necessarily a major plot point as this makes the world more tangible. However, in the interests of reversing the gender roles, Maxwell went a bit overboard in the other direction.
I Absolutely loved this unique telling of the Tarzan tale. The Tarzan books were the first books I ever read and stimulated my love of reading and I feel that this story pays true respect to the original story. The reader does a fantastic job and had me on the edge of my seat. Edgar Rice Burroughs would be proud.
