Edgar Rice Burroughs

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Then you are mistaken, monsieur," replied Tarzan. "You have no story for publication, have you, my dear Nikolas."

Rokoff looked up from his writing with an ugly scowl upon his face.

"No," he growled, "I have no story for publication—now."

"Nor ever, my dear Nikolas," and the reporter did not see the nasty light in the ape-man's eye; but Nikolas Rokoff did.

"Nor ever," he repeated hastily.

"It is too bad that monsieur has been troubled," said Tarzan, turning to the newspaper man. "I bid monsieur good evening," and he bowed the dapper young man out of the room, and closed the door in his face.

An hour later Tarzan, with a rather bulky manuscript in his coat pocket, turned at the door leading from Rokoff's room.

"Were I you I should leave France," he said, "for sooner or later I shall find an excuse to kill you that will not in any way compromise your sister."

As I read this book over the last few weeks, I remembered and recognized more and more parts of it --finally, including the ending-- and realized that I'd read it before as a kid. (Evidently, I did so after reading part of it at a friend's house; but had forgotten the title of what I'd read there...more

My daughter is being encouraged by her teacher to get a little variety in her reading, and maybe I'm trying for the same in going back to books that captivated me when I was about her age. Well, no, not exactly. The real reason is that I've been feeling the pressures of life more keenly than usua...more

3.5 stars.

This is a very uneven book. The first half is just ok, and deals with Tarzan travelling around the world and getting into various scraps and scrapes.

The second half, on the other hand, is really great. Tarzan returns to the jungle and has to deal with a lost city, an ancient civilizat...more

The completion of the tale begun in Tarzan of the Apes. New characters are introduced. Tarzan finds a lost city, Opar, which may have been built by people from Atlantis before it sank. Pulp adventure at its best.

Tarzan smokes cigarettes, drinks absinthe and says, “Mon Dieu!” That’s in between beatin’ the bad guys and dazzlin’ the ladies.

I found the second volume of the Tarzan series to be just as good as the first, just as exciting, interesting and action packed. Those who know me might say, “Yeah, Justi...more

Tarzan is simply a white SuperCaptainCoolMan. That's all there is to it. With sinewy arms of steel forged in the leafy shadows of the darkest jungles--you get the picture. The silliest theme in the book is Tarzan's de-evolution from a gentleman in Paris to the ape-man rampaging through the jungle...more

Tarzan, grieving his beloved Jane who will soon marry another, sets off to visit France. Where of course he causes problems with Russian blackmailers, becomes a spy for the French government, and ends up back in Africa. There's lots of fighting, lots of yelling, lost cities are rediscovered, gold...more

About 25 years ago, I decided to revisit the real turning point in my life as a reader, the point at which I became a voracious reader. I decided to re-read the Tarzan books I'd devoured as a teenager, to see if they still held up. I re-read the first book, Tarzan of the Apes, about an orphaned b...more

I'm pretty sure I gave Tarzan of the Apes 5 stars, so I have to give this one the same. It's really one, 2 part book. It is better in one way, much of Burroughs earlier seeming racism is gone. Otherwise, it is just a continuation of the basis for a story we've all come to know so well. It relies...more
