Current Reading ... from 1912

I'm currently into the third book of the series.
Tarzan of the Apes, 1912
The Return of Tarzan,  1913
The Beasts of Tarzan,  1914
  
So far the best book is the first.  All except for the last paragraph.  The plot covers the origin of Tarzan and his upbringing in the jungle.  Then his 'rescue' and return to civilization in pursuit of Jane and the fact that he is actually the rightful heir to the estate and title of 'Lord Greystoke'.  Then in the final paragraph, just when you want the hero to triumph, he chooses to not disclose that he is the heir and gives up his rightful claim to the estate, the title, the wealth, and JANE, and simply walks away.  

I SLAPPED MY FOREHEAD AND SHOUTED "WHAT A DWEEB!!"
