    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    ?


    What was most disappointing about E. E. Knight’s story?

    I've enjoyed the series so far, but this one is incomplete and the manner is with the story is told just puts me to sleep. Save your credit.


    Any additional comments?

    I was looking forward to this book but in the end.......just disappointment.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Nope, story was fine but wouldn't subject anyone else to the narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I could not stand the narration!!!! The characters were fine, but when it came to straight narration, it was hardly tolerable. I have had to walk away from this book several times. It’s the tempo and voice inflection in which the narrator reads, each sentence is read in a teeth grinding tempo and her voice rises at the end of each sentence. Felt like listening to a bad poem! I will never listen to a book read by this narrator again!!!!!!!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was not, took up time while waiting for the new MHI.

    Civil War veteran John Carter is transported to a dying planet, where he must elude capture by giant green barbarians to rescue a Martian princess from certain doom. In this landmark of science fiction, the myths and mystery of the red planet supply a vibrant backdrop for a swashbuckling epic.

    Would you try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs and/or Scott Brick?

    I believe I will finish the series, good story overall. .


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    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.
