Great book, so so narration.

The overall narrative was broken with the reader taking sips is a beverage and there was unrelated background noise.

Story & narrator

What does David Sharp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

It is like listening to various actors

Any additional comments?

I cannot find but a few books narrated by David Sharp. I have bought them all. Wish he would do more!

classic ERB

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Sure...if you're a Tarzan fan

Did David Sharp do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

No...not a top drawer reader, and his very audible breath intake was annoying
