    The science fiction classic that coined the term "time machine" and is generally credited with the popularization of the concept of time travel. A must listen for any fan of science fiction!

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator would pause, frequently in the middle of a sentence, as if he needed more energy to continue. It was distracting and ultimately, greatly diminished my enjoyment of the book itself.

    Impetuous and headstrong, Tara, Princess of Helium and daughter of John Carter, defies the elements by flying into a rare, fierce Martian storm. Hurtled half a planet from her home, she is threatened by grotesque, flesh eating monsters and barbarous warriors. Is the mysterious Panthan warrior friend or foe? As hero battles for maiden in the chess-like games of Jetan, the pieces are fighting men and the stakes are life and death!

    Story

    John Bolen might be a good reader for other books but when he drops into sotto voce for the women, it's unlistenable. I couldn't get past the first chapter.

    This was a book I'd read as a child and loved. I picked it up here because it was inexpensive and went along with the whispersync program. Even at .99ยข it's not worth the audio price. I guess I'll just have to re-read this one the old fashioned way.
