Reviews

Entertaining and well read!


(5 stars)

As usual, Mark Nelson narrates fantastically. The story is another one of the classic adventure SciFi tales that captivate the imagination (if not the literary critic). I both enjoyed and appreciated it. Keep reading Mr Nelson!

A fantastic tale in more ways than one


(5 stars)

I thoroughly enjoyed this story, I thoroughly enjoyed Mark Nelson’s reading of it. There’s some quite “dated” use of language to describe women and non whites but none of it is intended in a derogatory way so that’s something that’s just part of the period it’s set/written in. I found that the ending worked a little too hard to wrap all the resolutions , but that’s about the only gripe (and a minor one) in what is a tremendous fun adventure, which was early on asking questions about what it means to be truly human when artificial alternatives become available….

Fun listen!


(5 stars)

Mark Nelson at his best! Interesting story that's well written, imaginative, and insightful into the human mind and it's dark potential and being able to overcome! Perfect for a read-a-long too!

good reader and quite a good book. the recording is quite good too. book was quite a bit different to the authors tarzan series but worth the listen.


(1 stars)

Horrible Ending. The author does A180 at the end To make the hero acceptable in The societys point of view in a time that this book was written

Thrilling


(5 stars)

This book has many twists and turns while navigating the harsh Bornean wilderness... I dare not say much more, else I might spoil the whole story.

Really liked story


(4 stars)

Well read . Enjoyable for most part. Liked the ending. There were a few parts it dragged a little but overall held my interest.

A little different from ERB's other tales, but a lot of fun!
