    1. ‘NU, THE son of Nu, his mighty muscles rolling beneath his smooth bronzed skin, moved silently through the jungle primeval. His handsome head with its shock of black hair, roughly cropped between sharpened stones, was high held, the delicate nostrils questioning each vagrant breeze for word of Oo, hunter of men.’So begins ‘The Eternal Savage’ or as my older edition terms it ‘The Eternal Lover.’ The latter is the title I prefer. Just look at that for an illustration by one of the gian [...]


    2. No, this is not about my son, who has come home from college for the weekend. Rather it is the name of a stand-alone book by Edgar Rice Burroughs, most famous for his pulp-era science fiction series such as John Carter of Mars, Pelucidar, the Venus series, and, of course Tarzan. My database reveals that this is the 32nd book I've read by this author, making him my 5th most read author. Of course, most of those books (all of them?) are fairly thin paperbacks at around 175-225 pages each. I read m [...]


    3. A time-traveling caveman meets Tarzan, finds the reincarnation of his long lost love, then goes back to the stone age (or maybe Pellucidar?) & has a ripping good yarn of a chase across the prehistoric landscape. They fight the last Pterodactyl in the world, encounter ape-men, boat builders, cave bears, jealous wives and every other sort of prehistoric monster imaginable.It's as awesome as it sounds, despite some occasionally insensitive (to modern ears) language. It's also fairly typical for [...]



    4. This is one weird mixed bag from Burroughs! In a sense, it's basically a prehistoric cave-man adventure/romance with a modern day wrap-around reincarnation plot. Certain turns of the story set this apart from the general run of Burroughs work. Our handsome troglodyte hero, Nu son of Nu, gets trapped in a cave by an earthquake and emerges in the 20th century, only to meet the reincarnation of his mate, who has dreamed she was destined to meet him. Love triangles, abductions, chases, and the usua [...]


    5. The Eternal Savage is about Nu, a cave-man who sets out to kill a Smilodon (or Saber-tooth cat) so he can bring the head back and claim Na-Tul, the love of his life, as his mate. However things go wrong and Nu finds himself in the twentieth-century Africa where he meets up with Tarzan and has some adventures before returning back to his time period where he continues to work for Na-Tul.With all the discoveries made in science we now know that such a story is impossible. Dinosaurs and man didn't [...]


    6. After finishing An Independent PeopleI wanted a lighter book for nighttime. And this was definitely lighter. I would probably have rated it a bit higher if it stopped halfway through at it's first finishing point. It's an absurd, time-traveling action/romance story (the original title was the Eternal Lover)which is fine. For about 100 pages. Burroughs can write, and while it's somewhat interesting to reflect on how he could have the caveman thrust into "modern" time feel hurt how the white men l [...]


    7. Nu, Son of Nu exhibits much swag as he tears through the prehistoric jungles beating the living tar out of any creature foolish enough to challenge him to a rap-battle, which in those days was settled with spear and stone axe.Chivalry is not yet extinct in this bygone age as Nu brutally slaughters enormous ancient beasts that threaten his beloved Nat-ul, who was herself a badass cave warrior chick.Together, Nu and Nat-ul are solid literary role models for boys AND girls.


    8. One of Burroughs' "one-off" novels about Africa and the stone age. A fun read that might make a decent film. Great premise: an earthquake entombs and preserves a stone age warrior for 100,000 years. His almost-mate is killed in the earthquake but is "reborn" down the generations in a contemporary woman who dreams of her lost mate and the world they inhabited - until another earthquake frees him, and her dream comes alive!


    9. This one-off novel (or is it a Tarzan spin-off?) is a little all over the place, but it does have some excellent action sequences and a classic Burroughs structure. Cringe-worthy sections give plenty of fodder for a dissertation on gender roles and race, but that comes with the territory when you are a Burroughs fan.


    10. From my 1966 diary record: " I think I have finally outgrown his style of writing. I may still be able to stomach the Tarzan books and possibly the Martian series but they no longer thrill me like they did [when I was 12 or so]. His themes are all the same, his heroines too pure and his heroes too heroic and noble. I begin to agree with a critic I read that ERB is a very prejudiced writer"


    11. Sellepärast, et mu isa oli väga suur Edgar Rice Burroughs'i raamatute lugeja, siis muidugi ma lugesin selle läbi ja kuigi ma alustasin pidevalt uuesti, jäi see ikkagi pooleli, nii et ma loen seda varsti uuuesti. Litsalt üks aegumatu raamat minu jaoks, sest ma pidin seda koos oma isaga jagama. Ma armastan sind, isa!


    12. Set on Tarzan's estate and drawing in characters from The Mad King, this unusual book is about two lovers drawn to each other across a gulf of one hundred thousand years. The second part, set in the stone age, is more entertaining.


    13. Edgar Rice Burroughs is known for Tarzan. He wrote so much more.I have read Edgar Rice Burroughs stories since I was a Child. Science fiction and fantasy, he was a great story teller.



    14. Another entertaining read from the library of Burroughs. I enjoy reading Burroughs stand-alone books, as sometimes I find his series (Mars, Venus, Tarzan, etc.) a bit tedious towards the end.
