    William de Worde, the accidental editor of Discworld's first newspaper, just wants to get to the truth. Unfortunately, everyone else wants to get at William. And it's only the third edition. Browse more novels of Discworld.

    Overall

    DO NOT be put off by the fact that the reader is not Nigel Planer. At first I was bothered by not hearing Planer read, and then I quickly realized I was completely hooked on the reading. Briggs has the ability to make his Vimes, his Carrot, his Angua all sound just right. This is an excellent reading of Pratchett at his best. And when Pratchett's at his best, what more is there to say.

    Story
    (30)

    John Carter returns to the red planet 10 years after his Martian death in search of his wife, Princess Dejah Thoris. His adventures reveal the truth about the Gods of Mars...This is the second in Burroughs' 11-volume Mars series, a blend of sci-fi and romantic adventure.

    Christopher Tower says: "Awful narrator"
    "An annoying triumph of form over substance"
    Overall

    Burrough's Mars novels may be my favorite escapist literature of all time. I was not prepared for a reading where the reader adopts a broad southern accent, I guess because John Carter is from Virginia. I would have much preferred a simple straightforward reading. The affected accent is very annoying and detracts from the enjoyment of the story.
