The Return of Tarzan

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 . . .

I found The Return of Tarzan to be very entertaining and attention holding. Some of the events were a little unbelievable and corny though. For example, when Tarzan reached the city of Opar just moments before La plunged the knife into Jane's chest. That was a little bit too much, too far fetched, but it all works o.k., because the whole story is a little unrealistic, right? It is enjoyable, and a fun fiction to read, especially for kids and pre-teens I think. Good job ERB!
