Her husband again buried himself in his book, but not without a mildwonderment that three days out from New York his countess shouldsuddenly have realized an admiration for the very buildings she had butrecently characterized as horrid. Presently the count put down his book. It is very tiresome, Olga," hesaid. I think that I shall hunt up some others who may be equallybored, and see if we cannot find enough for a game of cards.

As Tarzan looked into the eyes of Monsieur Thuran he was struck by the strange familiarity of their expression. I have had the honor of monsieur's acquaintance in the past, I am sure," said Tarzan, "though I cannot recall the circumstances. Monsieur Thuran appeared ill at ease. I cannot say, monsieur," he replied. I have as much right on board her as you, and from the fact that you are booked under an assumed name I imagine that I have more right. We will not discuss it, Rokoff. All I wanted to say to you is that you must keep away from Miss Strong-she is a decent woman.

I began reading the Tarzan series and Mars series as a very young man and over the years have revisited them – partly for nostalgic purposes, partly because I love a good rip roaring tale and partly because I am a bit of an addict when it comes to well written pulp fiction.

This is the second book in the Tarzan series and more or less take up where the first book leaves off. Yes, as others have pointed out, it takes two books for Tarzan to finally hook-up permanently with his beloved Jane...I am a push over for a good love story!

For those of you who have only met the King of the Jungle via the movies, you are in for a bit of a different ride with the books. While I loved the Tarzan movies as a little boy, I now find them almost unwatchable and much, much prefer the books. You will not recognize the Tarzan of the books as the one that has appeared on the screen over the years.

As an aside, for those interested in the actual background of the Congo during the “Tarzan era,’ I might suggest you read ‘King Leopold’s Ghost,’ which is an academic biographical work by Adam Hochschild. It is the story and history of greed, terror, and genocide in Colonial Africa. It is a dark read and will be upsetting but worthwhile...if of course you are interested in such things.
I enjoy ERB's writing. He keeps the story moving, puts the characters into seeming inescapable situation, then rescues them. Of course, the rescues defy timing, logic, and often human possibility, but it's fun. And that's the only reason one reads a Burroughs book. I was a fan of the 1930-40's movies long before I read one of the books. When I was a boy, one of the three TV stations (before cable), had "Jungle Theater" each Saturday afternoon, and Tarzan movies were the usual fare. When I finally discovered the books, I was surprised to find the movies have little to do with the books. But I've enjoyed both. Books 1 & 2 are satisfying, absorbing escape adventures. I listened to the audio version of book 2 on a trip. The reading and recording quality are excellent--highly recommended.
My review is for the Kindle version and audio add-on. First the text for Kindle was not properly edited and was entered with hard paragraph breaks in the middle of sentences, which causes annoying breaks in the sentence flow. So, you don't have normally formatted paragraphs. Second, the audio quality of the narration is poor. The actor/reader does a fair job, but his loud gasping breaths between sentences can be distracting at times. His French accent sounds so much like Steve Martin's French accent, that it makes me laugh! The story is fun but the number of coincidences and Tarzan's reluctance to rid himself of his archenemy strain credulity. Evenso, I'm enjoying it and recommend the audio version, but not this Kindle edition. Fortunately, I am listening more than reading. If I were only reading, the odd text breaks would drive me crazy.
I fell in love with the Tarzan books when I was twelve. On a whim I decided to read the first few again--it does take at least two books to get Tarzan together with Jane, after all. The Return of Tarzan is not quite as good as the first book, but still a fun read, with lots of varied adventures from France to the Arabic North Africa to the jungles of Africa again. Enjoyed the book and a trip to my past reading loves. Really, you must read this book, and the first one (Tarzan of the Apes), if for no other reason that to be culturally literate. The iconic Tarzan is part of Euro-American culture, and shows up in Hollywood repeatedly as well as continual references from everywhere. Read it. Its fun.
This was written in a time when mankind’s ideas were far outgrowing their humanity. I enjoyed it for the sake of the classic itself and the adventure within. You have to overlook quite a few appalling period statements of bigotry. However, in these times of people being “triggered” by political candidates and uncomfortable words, I can’t imagine such persons managing that.

All that being said, if you can get past the “1933 British think”, it’s quite an interesting yarn.
Reading this second of the Tarzan tales was for me a pleasant escape back to the sort of story I enjoyed as a youth. As I read it I thought how much modern adventure tales like the Indiana Jones films are indebted to Burroughs. In this one Tarzan bounces from the Lord of the Jungle to an English lord who also speaks French, acts as an agent of the government, the disappointed lover who after losing out to a rival re-unites with Jane Porter, the defender of a native tribe against slave merchants and finally, in true Indie fashion, the adventurer who escapes ritual sacrifice in the hidden city of Opar only to later return and rob it of its riches. If you can get around a Tarzan howling in savage fashion over a lion he has just killed which he does three times in the novel and then shortly afterwards accept that the same man would willing relinquish his English title and fortune for what he believes will contribute to the happiness of others, you should enjoy the ride.

All in all it is a ripping episodic tale that, although a long way from being realistic, is fun to read. Unlike the first novel, it also has some admirable African natives which makes it more suitable for younger readers.
