Book Review: The Return of Tarzan

The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs (5 star review)

The Return of Tarzan
Tarzan #2

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

298 pages // published in 1913 // Classic adventure


Tarzan had renounced his right to the woman he loved, and civilization held no pleasure for him. After a brief and harrowing period among men, he turned back to the African jungle where he had grown to manhood. It was there he first heard of Opar, the city of gold, left over from fabled Atlantis. It was a city of hideous men - and of beautiful, savage women, over whom reigned La, high priestess of the Flaming God. Its altars were stained with the blood of many sacrifices. Unheeding of the dangers, Tarzan led a band of savage warriors toward the ancient crypts and the more ancient evil of Opar.

My Review

5 Star Rating

So this sequel comes with a bit of a Romeo and Juliet scenario here...

Tarzan can't stand by and watch his Jane Porter married off to another man. So he makes an exit from his circle of society friends, which leaves Jane thinking him dead.

Jane, shipwrecked with acquaintances, end up living the wild jungle life that Tarzan was originally accustomed to...

Everyone is a bit lost in limbo, and it makes for some interesting situations!

  1. Interesting! I hadn't know there was more than one book about Tarzan. I just looked up ERB, and found there were several!
