    This is the fourth audiobook in the "Mars Series". Mars is divided, as not one, but two princes and a Jeddak vie for the love of Thuvia of Ptarth. When she is mysteriously kidnapped, treachery threatens to throw Barsoom into a bloody war. Now Cathoris must follow in the footsteps of his famous father, John Carter. He must overcome phantom armies, dangerous spies, and savage beasts in a heroic attempt to rescue not only his true love, but to save and reunite Mars.

    Bushman says: "A Great Series, performed atrociously."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    After listening to the first 3 books I was very anxious to start this book. But within minutes the reader tendency to put the emphasis in the wrong place of every sentence and EXTREMELY annoying tendency to slightly pause between each word as if he needs glasses and was having trouble reading the text of the book. At times this pause between words became so irritating I had to stop the recording and step away from it as it was driving me utterly mad. I even tried speeding up the narrator via the Audible app options but this was still irritating. The half hearted attempts at adding differing voices to the characters was also simply annoying.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Gene Engene???s performances?

    I would NOT buy another title performed by Gene Engene. In fact I had purchased book #4 and #5 which is also performed by Gene Engene before knowing he was so inept at the performance and to be honest wish I had not purchased either.
