The Mad King


Read by Delmar H Dolbier

(4.6 stars; 284 reviews)


Shades of The Prisoner of Zenda! All our old friends are here—the young king, the usurping uncle and his evil henchman, the beautiful princess, the loyal retainer and the unwilling imposter. What more could you Hope for? This fast-paced story stays far away from Tarzan’s jungle or the inner world of Pellucidar. (Summary by Delmar H Dolbier)

How have I never read this before!!! Fun story!!! I love how the reader changes his voice for the different characters. Also how speeds up his reading in the action scene and he gets you so wrapped up in it all, You'll find yourself sitting on the edge of your seat.. Great job!!!! I will be looking for more stories read by him..

Great Story

(5 stars)

I was very pleased with this audio book. Although it was not what I expected by the title, it was a very good story.

A great story, well read.

(5 stars)

This is a very fun story, sort of like The Prisoner of Zenda. It is a superficial resemblance. There are sufficient differences. The story is grounded on planet earth and the main character is a normal guy from Nebraska. The hero shows exceptional virtue. He is not the conflicted un-hero that is so common today. This version was well performed. It took me a little to get used to the style of the reader. But once I did, I was transported into the story. Well done.

SURPRISE GEM

(5 stars)

I never knew rhat ERB ever wrote anything other than Tarzan and great science fiction. Then I discover this great adventure offering a hero who is the combinatio of James Bond and Indiana Jones. Read it, you will love it. Thanks to Mr. Dolbier for a superlative interpretation.

(3 stars)

I enjoyed listening to this book however certain chapters in part two is an exact copy of chapters in part one and that made listening extremely boring.I think the reader did and excellent job I look forward to listening to more books read by him..

A great story

(5 stars)

The reader did an exceptional job making the yarn very enjoyable to listen to. A simple but enjoyable story with just enough twists and turns to keep the listener on the eager of their seat.

One of his Best!

(5 stars)

Edgar Rice Burroughs' works are all wonderful! I particularly enjoyed The Mad King for its length and complexity, it is almost like two stories in one yet it is not. Thoroughly enjoyable!

great

(4.5 stars)

I really enjoyed this book E.R.B is a great aurther and this book doesn't disappoint. The reader adds colour but I do wish some of these male readers wouldn't try to do a female voice
