Only the beginning of Tarzan's challenges For if he is to defeat Vinaro Tarzan must confront him in the legendary golden city of Tucumai from where no outsider has ever return. This book doesn t deserve a review It certainly didn tFantasist Fritz Leiber S Adaptation
to carry the name a review It certainly didn t deserve to carry the name of Leiber is clearly an expert about Tarzan and his exploits referencing many past adventures within this one So good is this story compared to many of the Tarzan novelizations and adaptations over the years that the Burroughs estate has deemed this to be within the official canon Leiber definitely captures the sense of Tarzan as an intelligent athletic man at home in the jungle certainly but also in the halls of sophisticated government and businesses The story takes Tarzan to the depths of Brazil where he must fight to save a hidden civilization descended from the Incas The cast of characters is diverse and interesting including an obligatory lion and chimpanzee although the villain is a two dimensional psychopath obsessed with gold and death I ve never seen the movie this novelization is based on but I suspect Leiber includes a lot of extra detail as well as smoothing out some of the inconsistencies and plot holes movies like this inevita. The burning wreck of a passenger jet with a missing cargo of gold and a desperate plea from a friend lead Tarzan of the Apes deep into intrigue in the jungles of Brazil Soon ,Deserve To Carry The Name
Fritz Leiber ´ 5 Read,
Bly have This is a book that I think Burroughs would have Enjoyed This Is A This is a fun book that is apparently an adaptation of a 60s movie that updated Tarzan for the James Bond era This sounds awful but is actually pretty fun Leiber at his worst is always enjoyable anywayWhat s interesting is that the story behind this bookmovie ruthless Bond villain esue Vinaro searching for a lost city in the Brazilian seems to be based on the true story of the Fawcett expedition #For The Lost City #the Lost City Z Unsurprisingly Tarzan and his friends both human and animal manage to prevent him from conuering a mystical hidden land of peaceful peoples descended from ancient Incas who fled Pizarro to the There is nothing terribly original here but it is evocative and enjoyable Leiber could have done a good job updating Tarzan with a slightly modern style if he had gotten the green light from the Burroughs estate The villain of the piece resembles a Bond villain so the book has a somewhat different tone than an Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan book but it is. He ape man finds himself facing his most deadly nemesis yet a criminal mastermind Named Vinaro Whose Enemies Perish Vinaro whose enemies perish mysterious explosions of gold and flame But that may be.
