    Tarl Cabot has always believed himself to be a citizen of Earth. He has no inkling that his destiny is far greater than the small planet he has inhabited for the first 20-odd years of his life. One frosty winter night in the New England woods, he finds himself transported to the planet of Gor, also known as Counter-Earth, where everything is dramatically different from anything he has ever experienced.

    What made the experience of listening to Tarnsman of Gor the most enjoyable?

    An excellent performance by Ralf Lister brings the book alive and makes it a good introduction to the Gor Saga compensating largely for the weaknesses in characterisation and the extra-ordinary co-incidences in the plot.The Target audience (presumably adolescent boys) will really enjoy this as well as those of us who can still suspend disbelief and are schoolboys at heart or who wish to learn about Gor.LIght fantasy adventure literature at its best. with an element of déjà vu.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending held no particular surprise remaining classic for the genre


    Have you listened to any of Ralph Lister’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    The pace was good and made the book hard to turn off
