Not as good as I remembered from junior high school. ( )

Really liked it when I read it growing up. Have to read it again to comment though. ( )

Eh. Fairly easy read, didn't have to force myself to finish it. but not all that memorable. ( )

3 stars for Lord of the Trees (Farmer's "real world" Tarzan), 2 stars for The Mad Goblin (featuring Farmer's "real world" Doc Savage). Neither book is as good (or as NC17, if not X-rated) as their predecessor, A Feast Unknown. While it's an interesting idea to tell 2 different heroes' perspectives of the same events, it doesn't quite come off here. ( )
