Tarzan of the Apes

by Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Rated 4 1/2 Stars
Format:  Kindle

This book was a free download for Kindle.  I read this when I was about 12 years old and that was a very long time ago.  The writing is dated but not as badly as it could be.  It's also quite funny in places.  Professor Porter, Jane's Father and his Secretary Mr. Samuel T. Philander must have been the characters that Laurel and Hardy were based on.  Jane is a typical ninny because she is a blonde and her character was written by a man in about 1914.  Her Father advises her not to trouble her pretty little head with weighty matters!  Fatal words in todays world.  But I'm enjoying it.  A very nice change of pace.
