The Beasts of Tarzan

Edgar Rice Burroughs

Book Overview: 

This is the third of Burrough’s Tarzan novels. In the previous novel Tarzan reclaimed his name and title as John Clayton, Lord Greystoke. In this novel he finds that proper society is just as vicious as the jungle when greedy men threaten him and his new family. Jane and her infant son Jack are kidnapped by Tarzan’s enemies, Nikolas Rokoff and Alexis Paulvitch, who then trap Tarzan himself and attempt to exile him forever on a primitive island, bereft of all those dear to him. There, however, Tarzan gains new allies in the panther Sheeta and the ape Akut, together with Akut’s band. With their aid he tracks down his wife and son. . .and his arch enemies Rokoff and Paulvitch.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Almost immediately there was a crashing of the underbrush close at hand, and the long, lithe body of his strange companion broke into view.

At sight of the body of Bara and the smell of blood the panther gave forth a shrill scream, and a moment later two beasts were feeding side by side upon the tender meat of the deer.

For several days this strangely assorted pair roamed the jungle together.

When one made a kill he called the other, and thus they fed well and often.

On one occasion as they were dining upon the carcass of a boar that Sheeta had dispatched, Numa, the lion, grim and terrible, broke through the tangled grasses close beside them.

With an angry, warning roar he sprang forward to chase them from their kill. Sheeta bounded into a near-by thicket, while Tarzan took to the low branches of an overhanging tree.

Here the ape-man unloosed his grass rope from about his neck, and as Numa st. . . Read More

I bought this huge collection of 25 Tarzan novels, I think for only $0.99 a few years ago. I am slowly going through it. Just now finishing off Tarzan #3: The Beasts of Tarzan. I read the first 7 books way back about 30+ years ago, but now with this collection I aim to continue on and read them all.

- So, your third Tarzan in a row, huh?

- Yes.

- How was it?

- Same old, same old.

- What do you mean?

- Well, Tarzan got in trouble, rushes through the jungle, kills, hunts, eats raw meat etc. Almost gets killed a couple times. Things like that.

- There must be more to it than only that?

- Oh, yeah. This t

To celebrate "Tarzan of the Apes"'s centennial this month--Edgar Rice Burroughs' first Tarzan novel was released in the October 1912 issue of "All-Story Magazine"--I have been compulsively reading the first novels in what eventually became a series of some two dozen books. Book #2, "The Return of Ta

If the first two books were the origin story, this is like an epilogue to that origin. As things open, Tarzan and Jane and new baby Jack Clayton are making a home for themselves in London; then Jack is kidnapped (by Rokoff and Paulvitch, the evil Russian villains -- think turn-of-the-20th-century pa

"We are, all of us, creatures of habit, and when the seeming necessity for schooling ourselves in new ways ceases to exist, we fall naturally and easily into the manners and customs which long usage has implanted ineradicably within us."

Journey continues with the third book of the series. Compared t

I see a lot of people complaining that this book is unrealistic. Well, you are reading turn of the century pulp adventure, so of course it is! That would be like reading a fantasy novel and complaining that all of the elves and magic is unrealistic.

I, for one, really liked this volume. Tarzan leads

Not your movie Tarzan. Those loooking for Cheetah, see the movies. Tarzan here is hanging out with a pack of great apes and a leopard. Others have recapped the plot. A good solid Tarzan adventure from 1914.

Yeah, more Burroughs - read it on my smartphone. This was arguably, a bit sexist, and/or racist, again, arguably, although not for the times, considering it is early 20th century fiction.

The main thing is, Tarzan has A PET LEOPARD, and loyal band of giant apes in this one, who chew up his enemies t

I hadn't read a Tarzan book in a while and was eager to return to his jungle world. My copy is illustrated and I loved the drawings.

Another action packed Tarzan novel. This one was a bit of a contradiction. On one hand this may have been my favorite of the Tarzan books so far, but on the other hand it was a little more far-fetched then even the previous novels. (If it gets more far-fetched than a human raised by apes, that is.)
