I immediatly followed-up Tarzan of the Apes w this reading of The Return of Tarzan. What an adventure! Anything goes in this book. I like to imagine ERB having a loyal following who waited anxiously for his next installment when originally released. Our reader rose to the challange of a very diverse character list. I hope you will enjoy this also.

Unbelievably fantastic story!

What an amazing tale of non-stop adventure and intense excitement! and surprising laugh out loud moments of humor! Edgar Rice Burroughs is an amazing author and I am loving the Tarzan series and the narrator Ralph who reads many of his books is fantastic also.

What a great read by Mr Snelson. He brought the story alive with real passion and love. One of Burrroughs best Tarzan's, if not the best. A must listen for all Tarzan fans.

A Simple Warning (and a compliment)

(4,5 Sterne)

It is a magnificent tale, surely, although it may not be as good as the first Tarzan novel... but do not expect an animated Disney adaptation! There is racism. There is violence. But there is also a touch of the olden times that is not quite captured in any Disney adaptation. The reader is good, not the best I've heard, but far from the worst!

The story line stretches credibility at times, which only emphasises that this is indeed a tale of fiction. Mr Snelson has a Herculean task of creating a wide variety of character voices. Sometimes these revert to his own natural reading voice and it becomes confused as to where the character’s words finish and the narration resumes. There are some unconventional pronunciations and in particular it jars to hear the derogatory term Ay-rab used instead of the generally accepted pronunciation of Arab.

Worthy sequel that continues the story of the original novel!

(4 Sterne)

The reader does quite well when considering the immense task of voicing a number of male and female humans in addition to the native jungle inhabitants. Burroughs's story can make you wonder at times which is more brutal, the law of nature as practiced in the jungle, or the corruption of the human psyche that is inherent in the rise of "civilization."

Lazy 96

I love Ralph j Nelson voice and the way he reads. He never seems to miss a beat and hesitate while he is reading. This is a skill that is lacking in a lot volunteer readers. I very much appreciate their taking the time and I am not complaining but it is so much more enjoyable to listen to Nelson. Thanks again for your time.

A classic

(4,5 Sterne)

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this book. I grew up on the old Tarzan series as a kid; this isn't the Tarzan I grew up with. This story is a little more "gritty" and Tarzan's character is a little more"wild" & "dark". R J Snelson is an excellent reader. he made the story even more enjoyable. Thank you Mr Snelson
