Reviews

Tremendous Action Adventure


(5 stars)

another great example of Sir ACD's magic. The movies made back in the 30's & 40's attempted to bring these stories from the book, yet failed, due in part, no doubt, to the rigors of acceptable behaviors in polite society. I love LibriVox

another great performance by RS


(5 stars)

the story here is. Great and enjoyable as the earlier volumes of Tarzan (I actually like this about as well as the first and better generally than the second and third. Snell on is a wonderful reader and does an excellent job with character accents and voices to distinguish the dialogue for the listener. I'll probably take in the whole series.

I actually listened to this thinking it was the second Tarzan novel and didn't suffer for it, in fact anyone who knows the premise of the Tarzan character can listen to this without having read or listened to any of the other Tarzan stories. The story is the epitome of the Pulp Genre, taking reality and giving it a little kick into the unbelievable, which makes it both exciting and fantastic. The Son of Tarzan follows, strangely enough, the Son of Tarzan as events roll over the Greystoke estate and Tarzan's son finds himself alone in the Jungle as a young lad. Adventure, fights, close calls, and even love come to the son of the great man as he swings from tree to tree. There are enough characters in this story both of the animal kind and the human variety to keep it interesting throughout. Good guys and bad guys all putting the love aspect of the story into jeopardy. This wasn't a story I couldn't put down, but it was one I kept coming back to. The reader was pretty good and did some interesting voices that I found amusing. Read more of my reviews of Free Audio at http://freeaudioreview.blogspot.com/

Great story, well read.


(5 stars)

This is easily my favourite Tarzan story besides the original Tarzan of the apes which is strange as Tarzan is barely in it (and this is only confirmed near the end of the story).. Ralph Snelson is the Morgan Freeman of the audiobook world!!!

Jolly Good Book


(5 stars)

This book was wonderfully written! The amazing complexity of the books plot any the relative closeness of the characters, along with the animal's emotion and devotion to the human characters is awesome.

I love this series!

Fourth book of an intriguing series. Ralph Snelson is one of my favorite readers. He does a wonderful job with the voices, pace, and his voice is fantastic!

pay no attention to ask the haters that think someone's pronunciation is inherently racist. Ralph Snelson is a good VOLUNTEER reader. Very few errors and smooth reading. good story too :)


(5 stars)

Another great read by Ralph,he is really good at this. The story was great if a little predictable but that takes nothing away from it at all. Onto the next one.
