    One Reply to “Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy”

    1. Despite slow start, this was actually pretty good. I am a life-long Tarzan fan and really enjoyed the updated version.

    2. This one gets 5 stars because i LOVE Tarzan stories!Being a HUGE Tarzan fan, I loved this story set in current time. When Jane Porter and Robbie Canler first experience the Negoogunogumbar – a spirit of the jungle (as the local natives call him) they don't believe it. Jane is in the jungle with her father who is a key piece in the logging operation he works in. Robbie is there, as he is hiding from the world with a secret that burns deep inside him.When Jane meets Tarzan face to face, she can' [...]

    3. With Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy Andy Briggs delivers a 21st century take on Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic tale and introduces the legend of Tarzan to a new generation of readers in the same way that Charlie Higson and Andrew Lane have re-imagined with a youthful twist James Bond and Sherlock Holmes respectively.Robbie Canler was running away from New York and a tragic secret from his past when he stowed away on a cargo ship bound for Africa and fortuitously fell in with a group of loggers pl [...]

    4. Good, but not a classic.Set in modern times, Tarzan is much the character he was when first discovered in the first book but Edgar Rice Burroughs. He's huge and strong, capable of flying effortlessly through the trees, tough as nails, and king of the jungle. Jane Porter is a spoiled, selfish, bratty teenager who accompanies her father, a former doctor, to the Congo on a ill-fated expedition to illegally cut expensive hardwood trees from the forest. There, the Porters and their criminal helpers, [...]

    5. Initially, after reading the Edgar Rice Burroughs original, I had my doubts whether anyone could pull off a convincing update of the legend that is Tarzan. Having just finished Andy Briggs' bravura first novel in this new series, I am convinced beyond any reasonable doubt that he is the worthy successor to such a literary legacy.Briggs begins with an atmospheric opener, taking time to introduce us to his cast of supporting characters, including that of Jane Porter and her father, Archie, here a [...]

    6. Andy Briggs has done a reboot on the Tarzan legend for its 100th anniversary. Tarzan first appeared in a story by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912 and has never left pop culture since. For today's audience Briggs portrays Tarzan as the son of wildlife activists, whose plane crashed in Zaire and Tarzan has no memory of them. He has grown up with a tribe of gorillas and become king of the jungle in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo. Jane comes to the jungle with her father and his friend Cl [...]

    7. I was very impressed with this new and updated version of the story of Tarzan, which is quite different in the actual books from what pop culture tends to portray. The update to the 21st century actually worked very well. Tarzan isn't softened into merely a wild environmental activist; he's still very much the king of the jungle and the book opens with his killing of three poachers. I liked that he is raised by gorillas (a good choice also made by Disney), as ERB's "mangani" are rather unbelieva [...]

    8. This was so ridiculous. I like the Tarzan legend, but this didn't do it justice. It was an interesting concept, bringing Tarzan into a contemporary period, but with the realism of logging and genocide, Tarzan's life was less easily believed. Andy Briggs seemed uncertain of who he was writing for, trying to appeal to both genders by mixing gory descriptions of Tarzan murdering loggers with Jane swooning over Tarzan's Greek god body and Adonis abs. (Needless to say, it didn't work.) There was also [...]

    9. Andy Briggs brings Tarzan and Jane into the 21st century, giving this classic a contemporary feel while maintaing many of the original character traits. There is a lot of action which hooks the reader from the very beginning - unfortunately, there is also a considerable amount of violence portrayed, making the book unsuitable for most primary students. I have to admit that I have never been a big fan of Tarzan (even though a black and white TV series was a big hit during my childhood) and yet I [...]

    10. As a great fan of the Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan, I found this to be a bit difficult to begin. In comparing this first adaption by Andy Briggs with Burroughs introduction in Tarzan of the Apes, I found that Briggs couldn't hold a candle to Burroughs. HOWEVER, remembering the later the more simplistic and fantastic plots and characterization Burroughs used when Tarzan became quite popular I realized that it is that more simplistic Tarzan which Briggs has achieved to emulate. Briggs gives the se [...]

    11. As a friend told about something else - "Why did I rate it a 1? Because I couldn't go any lower". Boy does that description fit this book. I am a huge fan of Tarzan and to even put his name on this book is an insult. It claims to be a modernization of the story, but its more of a complete raping of the story and the characters. I honestly can NOT believe the Burroughs Foundation approved this horrible portrayal.None of the characters have their characteristics as set up by Edgar Rice Burroughs. [...]

    12. I really liked this it was great. Tarzan was really cool although it was definitely fairly brutal in places. I also liked Robbie, I thought he was kind of sweet and noble the way he risked his own life to try and save Jane. The fight scene with all the animals was epic and made the story very exciting. I very much enjoyed it!

    13. A good take on the Tarzan theme with an eco-environmental twist. Quite a bit of grit for a top end adventure book for twelve year old +

    14. This book is great and I got my copy signed by Andy when he came into my school. However I don't think that the title has much to do with the general plot and it should've been given a different one.

    15. Tarzan is an all-time favorite of mine, and Andy Briggs does an awesome job of recreating the story to bring it into a modern light! Can't wait to read the next book!!

    16. I started this not expecting much, but ended up surprised and quite like the "rebooted" story. No comparison to Edgar Rice Burroughs original books but definitely worth a read for any Tarzan fan.
