Sintesi dell'editore

Back in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., he was a blueblood named Waldo Smith-Jones. But when he found himself in a desperate effort to survive on a lost island of primitive men and beasts, he won not only a new name but also the hand of the cave princess, Nadara.

Classic Burroughs

Edgar Rice Burroughs is not for everyone, but if you enjoyed the Tarzan, Mars, & Pellucidar books you'll enjoy this romp through the South Seas written in 1913. It's a reverse Tarzan tale that starts with a wimp washed up on a beach where his book knowledge will do him no good. From there it's an adventure on every page & of course there is a beautiful girl to rescue. Good old pulp fiction at it's best.

What is old is new again.

What did you love best about The Cave Girl?

There are a few things about this story that are just weird but for the case of a fictional story let's just pretend that all people speak English.

What I found fascinating is that the story of how jungle people live, their customs and relationships and how this love story is woven through all things crazy for a tropical location where a girl falls in love with a foreigner and he with her.

The narration was pretty good, certainly in my group of 90% or better. I think the narration helped keep me going when my life was a greater distraction than the volume of my MP3 player.

This is a very old book but I have never read it before. I somehow missed this tale and I really enjoyed myself. I sometimes had to go back a few minutes because my mind wandered into "how could this happen?" or "what if ____ happens next?"

I am surprised by the lower ratings here. I just like this book for all the quirkiness, the age of the events and the surprise ending. Very cool!

Long time fan of Burroughs

What did you love best about The Cave Girl?

I love the adventure, action and getting lost in the jungle. Burroughs is predictable but as a fan I've read most all of the Tarzan series and enjoyed everyone. Cave Girl is twist on Tarzan and Jane. That's OK I still enjoyed it.

What other book might you compare The Cave Girl to and why?

Tarzan, Tarzan, Tarzan. Super human jungle guy and strong resilient beautiful girl. What's not to like.

What about Patrick Lawlor’s performance did you like?

Very well read, great voice. I prefer a reader that makes me feel as if I am hearing each characters voice over a straight read.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No. No and No. I do get a bit nostalgic when I get lost in the jungle and the charactors.

Any additional comments?

If you like larger than life charactors that can get into and out of most any situation then you will like Cave Girl.
