I thought this was a fun one! Some of the later Tarzan books that I've read recently hadn't really held my interest, but this one, like many of the earlier books in the series, was fun, fast-paced, and full of adventure.
A Tarzan book with no Jane....nope....not word one about Jane. Just Tarzan doing his thing--swinging through the jungle, hanging out with Tantor and Numa and Nkima, saving gals.....Lots of Tarzan swinging through the jungle super highway so that we could be updated on the various characters. They kept separating and recombining in different ways. This one seemed to have unnecessary "busy work" type traveling through the jungle. We're attacking Opar to get the riches, oops, our men are afraid and ...more

I have read all 24 of the Tarzan books. Read dates are from the mid 1970s through 1982. I thoroughly enjoyed all of the Tarzan books. They made a great escape from high school and college. I still have all 24 books and they are at the top of my book shelf. I thought it was pretty neat to find the actual covers listed on Goodreads and there are no barcodes on the books, plus the cover price ranged from $1.50-1.95 for each book.

This is another fun Tarzan adventures in which he encounters communists in his jungle domain who are bent on embroiling the world into another World War. No mention of Jane, but there is enough romance between likeable characters as there are enough violence and justice dished out from the hand of Tarzan upon the not-so-likeable ones. Highly recommended for those who want to escape into larger-than-life adventures and to live vicariously through Tarzan as he swings through the trees and proves h ...more
Tarzan the Invincible (Tarzan #14) by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Ballantine Books 1930) (Fiction). Tarzan, Nkima, Muviro, and the Waziri prevent Soviet communists from looting Opar. My rating: 7/10, finished 1973.
Tarzan foils the plans of an international group of Communists plotting to sow discord in colonial Africa. However the Russian leader of the group is secretly trying to set himself up as Emperor of all Africa, one of many sub-plots.

Burroughs brings back some characters from past volumes: La, High Priestess of Opar, Jad-Bal-Ja the lion, and Nkima the monkey.

Still great fun!

This was a very typical Tarzan book with a couple of entertaining twists at the end.
Tarzan foils the plots of those dirty reds.
