Read full description of the books:
I enjoyed this Tarzan novel, but as I move through the series at least two things are becoming evident. In this series, you can't toss a stick in Africa without hitting some type of lost civilization or city, and most likely, that same stick is going to hit someone in the head and give them amnesia.
There seems to be a new "lost city" discovered in every Tarzan novel, and in this one there were technically two civilizations found. One was a group of neanderthal type cave dwellers where the women completely dominated the men, and the other was a race of people around a foot tall.
There were three separate storylines going on here. You had the cave people storyline, the ant men storyline, and another storyline featuring Esteban Miranda, who is a Tarzan lookalike. He had been imprisoned by cannibals in the last novel, but pops up again here. (And there's amnesia involved.)
So at one point, Tarzan finds himself shrunk down to the size of the ant men at around a foot tall. Its temporary, however, and eventually he will return to full size, but no one knows exactly when. And how do they manage to shrink Tarzan? By hitting him in the head, of course. There's a gland in the brain that when struck will shrink a man down to a foot tall. Yeah, I never knew that either!
Another thing of note is how difficult some of the names of the ant men were. Komodoflorensal. Veltopismakus. Elkomoelhago. Trohanadalmakus. You get the idea. If you can get past that, there's a decent story here.
It seems to suffer from the same twisting plots as several of the Tarzan novels, but overall it's still a good read. If you like the other Tarzan novels, you'll probably like this one.
