The Summing Up of Tarzan

After finishing the book one more time I’ve decided that you can’t really review a book like this one. Taken at it’s basis it’s a juvenile work. Having said that, you have to let it appeal to the juvenile in you. If you have to sit and wonder how Tarzan can constantly find vines to swing through the trees then it’s not for you. I did like the introduction of D’Arnot in the last part of the book. I think he appears more in subsequent books but I can’t remember at the moment.

The next book will be Marie, by H Rider Haggard. This is the first story in which Allan Quartermain appears. I think he’s come to the attention of a lot of people after the movie version of The League of Extraordinary Gentleman. I’ve never read any of his stories. It’ll be interesting to see what I think.
