Publisher's Summary

Tarl has dedicated his life to ensuring that the Priest-Kings survive the harsh lands of Gor, but a savage tribe that closely guards its secrets has halted his quest. To continue it, Tarl must unravel the mysteries of this strange, private band of nomads called the Wagon People at risk of his life. He is the only man alive who has not trembled in the presence of this mysterious tribe.

Now he is embarking on the most perilous adventure of his time on the counter-world of Gor. Will he be accepted by the tribe and learn the secrets they guard with their lives - or will he die trying?

The saga continues: listen to more in the Gorean series.

Gorean: Love it or Hate it...."but"

First of all, you either love or hate this series, but it has survived and has thousands of fans who love Norman's world and some who even incorporate elements of his philosophy into their lives. I read the series as a young man and have always loved it and perhaps it saved me from the ruins of feminism.

The books are well read and I hope you create audible versions of all twenty-six...I will buy them all and encourage others who love the Gorean saga to do the same.

HOWEVER...the female parts need to be voiced by a female....instead of sounding realistic, it sounds stupid to have female voices read by a male. I would pay extra for this and think it would be so much more enjoyable.

Finally

Would you listen to Nomads of Gor again? Why?

Have read all the books and am enjoying listening to them.

Thanks Audible for finally getting them in audible format.

Chuvanistic, Clichee and very Interesting

You can not expect (hope but not expect) different from a 60's Sifi/Fantasy writer who makes very clear differences between the Dominent Male and the Submissive female. If this would bother you in a book; leave it alone.

Norman can make a world come to life. Although the main character is a bit 2 dimensional and again clicheed somehow the story line and description of the world still intriguies me. It may be the fact that i read this for the first time in the 60's or it may just be the clarity and simplicity of the story and characters but i liked it. So much so that i did get the following books and will continue to get them as quickly as Audibel get's them on line.

Handle with care but otherwise a good "take me away from this place" read!

excellent, but predictable, story

Very good story, but predictable plot with "Hollywood" ending. Maybe not as predictable when published in 1969.

Nomads of Gor

Started reading Gor back in 1973. Nomads, makes you wish there is a place to were you could escape to. Good audio presentation that makes you think that you are one of the characters. Good job and well done.

my favorite so far

I have been working through the series and of course this is the fourth book. This is my favorite of Gor.. The integration of numerous plot lines and the exploration of male/female relationships are excellent... comparing modem relationships against what our genetics truly desire. The context of the wagon peoples, who mirror in some ways the nomatic Mongolian peoples of Earth, provide a perfect context for this discussion. And oh yes it's an excellent story too.

For me, having read them in book form, I feel listening to them in audio form gave me a better understanding of the story.

Love Ralph's reading style
