    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.

    Where does John Carter in 'A Princess of Mars' rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high. I really enjoyed it. I was amazed at how good it was given it's age


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    He is just a fantastic reader.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    LOL. I think somebody already did that....


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    BSquared67 says: "A rollicking thriller"
    "An intriguing concept"
    Overall

    The concept of this book is intriguing. Several writers, not knowing how the book is progressing until their time to write the chapter.

    The book itself was also very good. I enjoyed listening to it.
