Tarzan and the Golden Lion


Read by Joshua Herring

(4.6 stars; 51 reviews)

Tarzan's amazing ability to establish kinship with some of the most dangerous animals in the jungle serves him well in this exciting story of his adventures with the Golden Lion, Jad-bal-ja, when the great and lordly animal becomes his ally and protector. Tarzan learns from the High Priestess, La, of a country north of Opar which is held in dread by the Oparians. It is peopled by a strange race of gorilla-men with the intelligence of humans and the strength of gorillas. From time to time they attack Opar, carrying off prisoners for use as slaves in the jewel-studded Temple where they worship a great black-maned lion. Accompanied by the faithful Jad-bal-ja, Tarzan invades the dread country in an attempt to win freedom for the hundreds of people held in slavery there... - Summary by Edgar Rice Burroughs

I am amazed at the depth that Mr Burroughs goes to in his Tarzan series. I grew up listing to and watch the many Tarzan stories over the last 70 some odd years. the radio stories and old and newer movies did not show the way the books were written. I am also amazed at the amount of crooksrness the books display as to, in which one would think, what went on in Burroughs period. how did we make it this far. I hope to listen to the other books in his Tarzan series. all I can say is I crave more of this entertainment. Thank You Mr. Burroughs for bringing Tarzan into at least my world.

My mistake

I need to apologize to the people that read these reviews. I called the reader a speed reader. On my LibriVox app there is rabbit in the upper right hand corner. I never dared mess with it and I thought I left it alone. I had listened to a dozen books, at least. Somehow I unknowing put the pointer to the farthest right it goes, therefor I listened to the whole audio book on speed reader mode. I’ve since realized it. My apologies to the book reader and anyone that read my review. The book and the author are fine... I’m not.

Not quite so interesting as the other Tarzan novels but still highly recommended.
