A Classic, brought to life.

A book, and story I have always loved. This is one of the great classics, in my opinion, and it is brought to life with great narration. I absolutely loved it.

A classic

So this is a great reading of a classic book, I love the narrator. The story is definitely from the time and is a tad bit racist, but still a great story.

An unlikely, yet wonderful story.

A story to love for all time. So much deeper and fuller than the movies based on these stories. Edgar Rice Burroughs did not have internet resources to double check his "ape info," so just let the story take you and forget the details. This narrator, Peter Batchelor, is among my favorites.

great story, decent performance

the story is classic, but I felt that the narrator wasn't suited to bring it to its potential
