I really enjoyed this book. The character development of Tarzan was phenomenal, going much deeper than any movie you’ll see based on this book. Reading through the point of view of a man growing up with no contact with the human kind, no standards of society or social graces outside that of a primate was amazing. I loved the detail Burroughs put into this fact, such as the young Tarzan referring to letters as ‘little bugs’ and his inability to distinguish his own species later in his life. The only problem I had with this story was the pace. Beginning the book, it was slower paced and more detail oriented, but once the ship arrived on the beach of Tarzan’s cabin, the pace increased steadily, until I reached a rushed ending. That’s the best word I could use to describe the last quarter of this novel: Rushed. And a little clichéd, too. I would have had no problem reading a hundred or so more pages, which I felt would have greatly bettered the novel. If only the author would have kept his pace in time with the beginning half of his story. Taken a little more time with it, perhaps. Should that have been the case, this could have easily become one of my favorite books. But other than the plot pace, this was a very good book that I greatly enjoyed.
