I truly enjoyed listening to Tarzan of the Apes. After sampling all the versions currently available I ended up choosing this version, narrated by Simon Prebble, and I am so glad I did. The narration was just perfect and my only disappointment was that he does not narrate the other books and I had to choose another narrator for book 2.
As for the book itself...it is a lot of fun. Edgar Rice Burroughs is becoming one of my favorite authors, having also enjoyed the John Carter books. Tarzan has a lot of different adventures and he doesn't meet Jane until well into the story...but EVERY adventure Tarzan has both before and after meeting Jane is interesting and fun to listen to. Due to the length...I was not able to listen to this all in one sitting but I REALLY wanted to and had a hard time turning it off.
The ending was rather sad and left me wanting more...so I have already downloaded and listened to the second book. You will not be disappointed in continuing this story if you enjoyed this first book.
Highly recommend for a fun adventure story.

I'm very fussy about narration and this performer is as good as they get. I am not writing more because I'll die if I don't download book 2 immediately.
