Tarzan of the Apes by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Print

When I was a child my father instilled a passion for reading within me by telling stories based on books he had read. The most memorable tale was that of Tarzan of the Apes . Perhaps my love of reading can be traced back to the fictional story of a young man swinging through the trees of the African jungle. Yet, I had never personally read Burroughs’ classic until now. I did not find it great literature, neither in style nor story line, but it was certainly fun. You might want to read it sometime – and tell it to your children. Who knows, it may fuel a passion (hopefully not the swinging from trees or eating with their hands kind).
