I read this entire series in the 80s and 90s now I am enjoying them even more . Patrick Full is not only a great narrator but captures the true essence of the character s in the book he acts all the parts so you believe the people in the book are actually there speaking and fighting etc.

This is the fifth audiobook in the "Mars Series". There is a game on Mars similar to chess - very similar, save that it is played on a board of a hundred squares, and with ornate pieces. The Martians call it jetan, and it is as old as the civilization of Barsoom. But in the Martian city of Manator, jetan is no game.

Had I not heard Scott Brick

Had I not heard Scott Brick's narration of the first three books, I might have given a higher rating to this version.
The story is one I loved from my teen years and still do.
I is simply that I enjoyed Scott Brick's narration so much more.
If I ever discover his version of this series I will buy it again
