A bit of a disappointing bore...,
This review is from: The Beasts of Tarzan (Audio CD)
While this novel was well written, I still often found myself bored silly reading it.
The tale of Tarzan, Lord Greystroke, was wonderfully told and concluded within the first two novels ("Tarzan of the Apes" and "The Return of Tarzan")...but in all honesty, I really felt it should have ended there. A third novel (and I'm sure the 20 or so sequels that followed this one) was not needed at all.
As mentioned in the title, I found this third novel really disappointing. I stopped reading it a couple of times because I found it so tedious and dull (which was never the case with the first two novels), and was glad it was over when I finally finished it!
Honestly, the only good part about it was seeing Tarzan's determination to save his family, and the long over-due conclusion to a particular character. Other than that...I really felt it was a waste of my time.
Which is a shame, because Mr. Rice Burroughs is quite a fine writer, and the first two books were fantastic.
