Mars, princess, and violence.
It seems to me as if the Barsoom novels were written for Scott Brick to narrate as John Carter. This guy is well worth the money for an audiobook.
I just came off of Dune, and since this was written in the early 1900's I am impressed. However, it feels like there isnt enough detail, and comes across as being an abridged version. Anyone else get this? This wont stop me from grabbing the next one.
Pretty high. I really enjoyed it. I was amazed at how good it was given it's age
He is just a fantastic reader.
LOL. I think somebody already did that....
The book and the movie are not polar opposites, but they do tell different stories. I highly recommend the book. I was amazed that it is now 100 years old. I hope that they hire Scott Brick to read the remainder of the series. Many of the subsequent books don't have great reviews on performance.
I wish I had known about this book series as a teenager (when I had more time to sit and read). I would have eaten them up!
This explains a lot more than what the Movie did. I read this as a boy, and then saw the movie and was confused. This explains a lot more than the movie ever could in the relatively short 2 hours. You have to read the 2nd and 3rd book to see how the movie was condensed. But this was an excellent reading and well worth my time.
After seeing the movie and being intrigued by the storyline, I had to get this book. I was not disappointed with this read. Sure there were places and parts that were a little too unbelieveable or dragged out, but the ending was a solid right hook that left me with a lump in my throat.
It's the scifi story that begat all scifi stories. What's not to love? It's good ol fashioned scifi fun.
John Carter. Woola.
I would recommend the book but with the understanding the book comes from the early 20th century. The modern science we now have about Mars makes the book a bit dated.
Great book, but a little disappointed with the ending. Seems to me it could have been better.
As always, Scott's performance is wonderful. I always enjoy the passion he brings to every book he performs.
Totally different world of imagination; amazingly written so long ago, but as visual as Star Wars
EE "Doc" Smith's Lensman series
Just a fun read
I believe I will finish the series, good story overall. .
The narration of Scoot Brick on this last book was less than great. He just came across as so apathetic; this isn’t the story of Eeyore on Mars. I could use a little bit of life brought to the story.
