The Beasts of Tarzan


Read by James Christopher

(4.6 stars; 685 reviews)

This is the third of Burrough's Tarzan novels. Originally serialized in All-Story Cavalier magazine in 1914, the novel was first published in book form by A. C. McClurg in 1916.

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. (Summary by Wikipedia)

Reviews

good story, good reading


(4 stars)

a bit faster than most of the other readers I've heard (but I listen at accelerated speed so was unbothered. a little shorter than the earlier tarzan stories but doesn't lack for content. quite enjoyable
