did not like it
Read from February 13 to 14, 2012

As a friend told about something else - "Why did I rate it a 1? Because I couldn't go any lower". Boy does that description fit this book. I am a huge fan of Tarzan and to even put his name on this book is an insult. It claims to be a modernization of the story, but its more of a complete raping of the story and the characters. I honestly can NOT believe the Burroughs Foundation approved this horrible portrayal.
None of the characters have their characteristics as set up by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Everything is different and nothing happens at all like the original. I'm actually sorry I bothered getting this travesty. Please don't make the same mistake.

Harry Obviously Mr Keller didn't grasp the simple fact that this is not a retelling of the original story. It is completely different, inspired by Edgar Rice Burroughs characters. So obviously everything is different; if he was so annoyed why didn't he read the orignal. As usual, I will be avoiding reviews by reviewers who don't understand simple concepts.
