2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By E. David Swan VINE VOICE on May 15, 2014
Format: Paperback
If you were reading through a 22 book series you might expect it to lose some steam over time. On the one hand Burroughs increasingly reuses ideas. This is the fifth occasion I’ve seen where Tarzan comes across a lost civilization. This time it’s the twin cities of Cathne (the city of gold) and Athne (the city of ivory). This isn’t even the first time Burroughs has used twin cities at war as he also employed this in Tarzan and the Lost Empire. In this book Burroughs doesn’t even give an explanation as to how a city literally covered in gold could remain hidden as Tarzan simply walks to it as it has no natural barrier like other lost cities Tarzan has encountered. Tarzan also speaks their language which is actually an improvement since having Tarzan learn foreign language almost instantaneously was a bit hard to swallow. However, despite the reuse of ideas this is one of my favorite Tarzan books because it feels like Burroughs was becoming increasingly comfortable with his character and the story is lighter and less encumbered.

It’s funny that three of my least favorite Tarzan books are the second, third and fourth ones. Burroughs seemed intent on tying the ape man down first with a wife and home and then with a son. It just dragged the stories down but in Tarzan and the City of Gold we don’t see hide nor hair of Jane or Korak. In fact when the queen of Athne tries to seduce Tarzan he declines because he loves the jungle but Tarzan makes no mention that he already has a mate and implies that he possibly could love her. This book is the closest I’ve seen Tarzan coming to a romance novel with Tarzan at one point passionately kissing the mad Queen. I considered the possibility that this book is out of chronological order with the series and this wouldn’t be the first time this has happened.

Tarzan is back with a few more clothes here. He is learning more about the human race and their cities. As mankind races to amass riches, Tarzan is caught between the greed and avarice of the humans and the conflicts within the ape tribes.

If you are a fan of Edgar Rice Burrough's, you should consider reading the entire Tarzan series. Lot's of fun and adventure!
