    "REALLY GOOD FOR A $2 BOOK"

    I was surprised about how well read this book was, I wasn't expecting much out of it, considering the price tag was so cheap. Having picked up the other books in the series for 4-5$ a pop, this one had been the best performance out of the whole lot.

    After getting through most of the second book, read by somebody else that frequently started off bad and had to work his way up to "eh, it's ok." 5min after they started reading a new segment.... THIS reading of "A Princess of Mars" was by far better.

    I would suggest picking up this version of the book. It is the right price if you are just wanting to get introduced to the series.

    "Good performance, okay story"

    Granted these stories about Mars were written a long time ago. However, despite the good performance, I had a hard time staying with the story line and action, partly because the characters were flat and the character motives and desires weren't clear. I'll probably listen to the next book in the series to see if it makes more sense.

    "Yawn ... Good story but the narrators voice puts m"
    Would you try another book from Edgar Rice Burroughs and/or Bob Thomley?

    If the narrator is changed


    If you’ve listened to books by Edgar Rice Burroughs before, how does this one compare?

    First book I have listen to by Edgar rice


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I have over 27 books on my phone . I love to listen at work during down time but the narrator made me want to get back to work lol


    Was A Princess of Mars worth the listening time?

    Haven't finished and not sure I will

    "Give it a chance"

    Edgar Rice Burroughs is an author that I have heard a lot about, but have never taken the time to get to know. He is sexist and racist, but also a whole lot of fun. If you can overlook some of the dated ideas and just enjoy the story it will be worth your time.
