Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

A great safari had come to Africa to make a movie. It had struggled across the veldt and through the jungle in great ten-ton trucks, equipped with all the advantages of civilization. But now it was halted, almost destroyed by the poisoned arrows of the savage Bansuto tribe. There was no way to return. And ahead lay the strange valley of diamonds, where hairy gorillas lived in their town of London on the Thames, ruled by King Henry the Eighth. Behind them came Tarzan of the Apes with the Golden Lion, seeking the man who might have been his twin brother in looks -- though hardly in courage!

About the Author

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) is the creator of Tarzan, one of the most popular fictional characters of all time, and John Carter, hero of the Barsoom science fiction series. Burroughs was a prolific author, writing almost 70 books before his death in 1950, and was one of the first authors to popularize a character across multiple media, as he did with Tarzan s appearance in comic strips, movies, and merchandise. Residing in Hawaii at the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour in 1941, Burroughs was drawn into the Second World War and became one of the oldest war correspondents at the time. Edgar Rice Burroughs s popularity continues to be memorialized through the community of Tarzana, California, which is named after the ranch he owned in the area, and through the Burrough crater on Mars, which was named in his honour.

This book has enough plot for five or six adventure stories. It has two sets of doubles, a hidden valley full of diamonds, a treasure map, a mad scientist and Tarzan's trip to Hollywood. Also apes with genetic material from Henry VIII. A lot of fun from beginning to end.

Format: Paperback
Tarzan is formula fiction, in very nice form but still formula fiction. OK, it's well done formula fiction. Basically a massive safari enters the forest, and the Bansuto [apparently no relation to the Bantu] use poisoned arrows to raise havoc. There is conflict, some major challenged which almost take our hero to the brink, but everything is resolved at the end. You would think Burroughs had read The Writers Journey: Mythic Structure for Writers, 3rd Edition or The Key: How to Write Damn Good Fiction Using the Power of Myth, but didn't quite free it up enough. Much as I do love Tarzan novels, and many do, him flying in WW II was sort of riding the shark. They come of another time, a simpler time, of nobility, of moral choices, and also of inferiors. They are as much a commentary on their times, as fiction. Still a fun read, for me. I used to check out a lot of books, for a weekend, as a kid, and read them all. This was in that class, and I do still occasionally do that. This is a good choice.
