The Mad King

Gelesen von Delmar H Dolbier

(4,605 Sterne; 395 Bewertungen)


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..

I greatly enjoyed this book

(5 Sterne)

Edgar Rice Burroughs is quickly becoming my favorite author. it is true that his characters have a tendency to be stereotypical and have repetitive personalities however the stories are extremely creative and well written even to today's standards. I think with this book I have come to believe that he can write anything. from a book like Tarzan to a book like the girl from Ferris to a book like the Mad King. the gentleman who is reading the book was also fantastic. I particularly liked his voice for the main character. very well done

Great Story

(5 Sterne)

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.

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.

At the beginning I feared that I had been drawn into a less than enjoyable book. Before long I discovered that I was hooked and couldn't put it down (so to speak)This fine book was maade even better by the talented reading of Mr. Dolbier. I'll be looking for more books by this author as well as the man who read this one.

SURPRISE GEM

(5 Sterne)

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.

The Mad King

(5 Sterne)

A rollicking, action-packed, Ruritanian adventure/romance skillfully read. The narrator also does such a good Winston Churchill impersonation that I kept expecting Prince Von Der Tann to exhort his countrymen to "fight them on the beaches." Well done and thank you! TheBookworm (Manchester, UK)

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..
