    Time is a resource. Everyone knows it has to be managed. And on the Discworld that is the job of the Monks of History, who store it and pump it from the places where it's wasted (like the underwater; how much time does a codfish need?) to places like cities, where there's never enough time.

    Glen Phipps says: "A welcome re-recording."

    Overall

    The original recording of this story used an ensemble cast that had as much feel for the material as a centipede does for a bicycle. I'm annoyed that I had to purchase this audiobook twice, but I'm glad that I finally got a good reading of an excellent story. If, like me, you purchased the original recording, buy this. You'll be glad you did.

    Story

    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.
