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.
Its a great tale, exciting, though a little confusing given all of the unusual names. But put it into context - this is an old book!
Yeap, time well-spent because the historical value of this novel.
Not to any friend. The plot is good and interesting but the text is as old as it should be. It actually requires some effort of the reader to accept the style of the text. Also, it's important to have in mind that originally A Princes of Mars was published in pulp magazines in a serialized fashion, which make the time span of the story a little convoluted.
The narrator is not that good on this one. Sometimes I couldn't simple understand him, the fact that english is not my native language also doesn't help (altough I actually do understand english very well and had awesome experiences with others Audible books).
Yeap, already did.
I have not read the printed version so cannot comment on this.
The story is dated in regards to the sci-fi of today, but still offers a good listen. The story is pretty good but seems lacking in some places. The author goes into great detail at one point but then will move the story along skipping what seems to be relevant material. Overall though I still say it was worth the listen.
Scott did a good job with the material at hand. Still kind of dry.
Yes, it is an oldie but a goldie. Always great pictures in your head.
Thevway it captures your imagination.
Made me get some of the other books.
Scott brick rocks as a reader
I like historical fiction and action-adventure. In the action genre, I really like to find a protagonist I like and follow the character development. Robert Parker, Lee Childs, Louis L'Amour, Clive Cussler, Robert Ludlum are some I can think of off the top of my head.
This is the classic interplanetary love story. Romance, intrique, strange races, and even stranger technologies.
A man of honor is able to fight across and unify an entire planet in the name of love. The fighting is grand. Burroughs lets you see each new spicies, experience each character, and hear every strike of sword.
John Carter has been my favorite character since I began reading these books in the sixth grade.
Yes. Then I wanted to go right into The Gods of Mars.
Glorious, Imaginative, fantastic
Woola - With out saying a word the creature showed bravery, strength, courage, and undying loyalty to John Carter and those he knew.
I loved his performance. His voice has a great Carter quality to it that lends its self to the story quite well. Wish he did the rest
I recommend this series to anyone wishing to travel beyond the star on a fantastic journey of adventure!
