    A Princess of Mars is the first novel in Edgar Rice Burroughs's famous "Barsoom" science fiction series. John Carter, a Confederate American Civil War veteran is mysteriously transported to Mars, called "Barsoom" by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has great strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. Carter soon falls in among the Tharks, a nomadic tribe of the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants.

    Overall

    After listening to "Tarzan" narrated by Jim Hill, and thoroughly enjoying it, this narration of another Burroughs book, "A Princess of Mars", made me wish it had also been narrated by Jim Hill instead of Peter Delloro. Mr Delloro's narration was histrionic with many mispronounced words. The narration distracted from the story. The story itself deserves 3-4 stars, but the narration is terrible.
