Tarzan of the Apes

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

After reading the original I realized that all the subsequent adaptations had to be tamed due to the gripping violence of the original. The story transcends time and does not have that dated quality of many books of the 1900's. An exciting read to reawaken the "wild man" in all of us! I only give it 4 stars because Tarzan's move to "civilization" at the end of the story lacks the stunning magic of the remainder.
