Assassin of Gor | [John Norman]

Assassin of Gor

Welcome to Gor, a parallel Earth, where social norms are exotic and the way of life is brutal. In the fifth book in the Gorean Series, the deadly assassin Kuurus is intent on a bloody mission of vengeance. His adventure takes him from the caste of the pleasure-slaves, which are rigorously trained in the rules and techniques of sexual ecstasy, to the brutal arenas where humans participate in deadly hand-to-hand combat. He witnesses violence, conflict and uncertainty, as the inhabitants of Counter-Earth are forced to confront their destinies…no matter how exalted or debased.

    "Gorean Saga"

    The Gorean series is basically Conan the barbarian meets a smut novel on another world. There's lots of violent battles and vicious giant man eaters with a dash BDSM. The series gets a little repetitive as the books go on but not to badly for a 20 plus book series. If you liked the John Carter in 'A Princess of Mars' series most likely you'll enjoy these books there very similar. I prefer the Gorean series myself, except the ones narrated by women which I haven't bought so don't know if there good or not I personal dislike women narrates.

    "wow writing styles have changed..."

    This was OK. This was my first book by John Norman I know this one is smack dab in the middle of a huge series but I didn't feel lost at all.

    I did have a problem with the writing style, the I said she said back and forth got REALLY old. I also felt there was WAY too much description, don't get me wrong you need a good amount but it seems like the author would go off on tangents on descriptions of things that I didn't need to or care to know.

    The love scenes, at least by today's standards, was non existent.

    The narrator was ok but for the female voices he just sounded like a drag queen (nothing against drag queens) and so I had a hard time listening to the female voices, lucky it is told mostly in first person.

    Overall an interesting read that I am not sad I purchased but would not purchase any more from John Norman, it's just not my cup of tea.

    "Not the target audience!"

    I love a good surprise, and I thought this book might be it, from the reviews; however, it was a drag...slow and meandering without much of a plot or point.

    "Horrible Narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Another poor listening experience, the characters voices are terrible at bess. I bought this and won't listen to it ever again.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't buy

    Ralph Lister does it again, my favourite of the series so far, much easier to follow when listening
