The Beasts of Tarzan

Written by: Edgar Rice Burroughs

First line: "The entire affair is shrouded in mystery," said D'Arnot.

Why you should read this book: They wouldn't let Tarzan kill his enemy at the end of book two, and now the guy is back and seeking vengeance with a trap so transparent that only a pair of innocents like Tarzan and Jane could be reasonably expected to fall into it. Now they're back in the jungle, separated, without any knowledge of what's become of the other, or their kidnapped infant son, but Tarzan has a new secret weapon: an army of apes and a faithful panther who are all more than happy to kill for him. Tarzan gets to fight his way through impossible odds for his family while flexing his manly physique and escaping certain death.

Why you shouldn't read this book: The ending is almost as stupid as the ending of the first book.
