Publisher's Summary

A Princess of Mars was the first book by Edgar Rice Burroughs to feature the character John Carter. It led to an 11-book series featuring his adventures and became the basis for the 2012 movie. Carter is a war-weary former military captain during the Civil War who is inexplicably transported to Mars. He quickly (and reluctantly) becomes embroiled in a conflict of epic proportions among the inhabitants of the planet.

Very.... 1912.

It's vastly apparent when this was written. I get that for some more sensitive readers, it may be too entrenched in the racism of the day. I don't consider myself particularly sensitive to these issues, but as a Native American, there were several parts I struggled through. If you can get past those, however, it is well worth your time!

Excellent loved it!

This was a much better story than I thought it would be. Edgar Rice Burroughs was an amazing author. He know how to write well and to keep you engaged. I don’t like some of his themes that come across as somewhat racist 100 years later, but it is a well told story. I loved the narrator reading the story. Phenomenal job! I loved his Virginian accent.
