Books read in 2012: No. 24 - Tarzan of the Apes

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Started: March 19
Finished: March 22

Notes: As my latest read came to a screeching halt because of pages missing in the trade paperback edition, I've had to find other reading material. Which is fine. I now turn to an author with whom I need to become more familiar, the master of Sword and Planet literature, Edgar Rice Burroughs. This was another Amazon e-book freebie, so I can't argue with the price.

Mini review: I had read only a little Burroughs before now and it had not made me a fan, but this novel did. I was surprised how much I liked it, how much kept with my own notions of Tarzan and how much swayed in other directions. I will be reading further novels in this series.
