Gelesen von Don W. Jenkins

(4,451 Sterne; 246 Bewertungen)

In the previous novel, during the early days of World War I, Tarzan discovered that his wife Jane was not killed in a fire set by German troops, but was in fact alive. In this novel two months have gone by and Tarzan is continuing to search for Jane. He has tracked her to a hidden valley called Pal-ul-don, which means "Land of Men." In Pal-ul-don Tarzan finds a real Jurassic Park filled with dinosaurs, notably the savageTriceratops-like Gryfs, which unlike their prehistoric counterparts are carnivorous. The lost valley is also home to two different races of tailed human-looking creatures, the Ho-don (hairless and white skinned) and the Waz-don (hairy and black-skinned). Tarzan befriends Ta-den, a Ho-don warrior, and Om-at, the Waz-don chief of the tribe of Kor-ul-ja. In this new world he becomes a captive but so impresses his captors with his accomplishments and skills that they name him Tarzan-Jad-Guru (Tarzan the Terrible), which is the name of the novel (Introduction by Wikipedia)

An Amazing Adventure

(5 Sterne)

This is the 8th and one of the best of the series of Tarzan novels. Books 3-7 I found tedious and less enjoyable by comparison. if you enjoy a good story of Forgotten lands, beautiful women, horrific beasts and larger than life heroes then try Tarzan the Terrible!

Not my favourite Tarzan story, but ok.

It is quite evident that ERB was interested in eugenics and a fan of Darwin and his woefully ignorant worldview.. 2nd time I have downloaded and listened to this book and chapter 15 didn't work on either occasion

(3 Sterne)

least believable one yet. And it sounds like Don Knotts as Barney Fife reading it. Honestly, it's much more of a John Carter style story than a Tarzan one.

Great adventure story

(4 Sterne)

Classic Tarzan adventure, full of action, damsels in distress, and "primitive" chivalry. Well written and well read.

patchy in places
