A sensual, powerful, and thought-provoking Tarzan retelling.
Eden Matthews stumbled upon the discovery of a lifetime while photographing wildlife deep in the heart of Africa....
I have had a crush on Tarzan since I watched the old movies starring Johnny Weissmuller. He was considered a hunk back in the day. This author has brought a modern spin to the tale I fell in love with. The only thing that I missed from the old series was that there’s no but here it was more than made up for by having the gorillas – think of the Disney version.
We get to see what Eden had to endure on her first trip into the wild. Ms. Rivers helped to bring our author’s characters to life. She had a way of changing the tone of her voice when needed so that we know a male is speaking. I’m a little biased when it comes to Mr. East. I’ve listened to his work before and have never had a bad listen and that still holds true here. Looking forward to listening to more of their work.
Our voice actors brought the scenes that Ms. Castle has created to life. They help to bring us into the story as if we are on the edge watching everything happen in real time. I liked how conservation is mentioned here several times – it's something I believe in. This story also has suspense and romance that supports the action adventure. Now that I’ve listened to the story, I don’t know if I could read it without playing the audio version at the same time. I can certainly see listening to this book more than once. Will also plan on checking out more of the author’s work.
