Audible Editor Reviews

When tough-talking biker babe Jane Carver accidentally deals a death blow to the unfortunate guy who gropes her outside a California biker bar, she makes a run for it - and wakes up naked on an alien planet called Waar. Thus begins Nathan Long's Jane Carver of Waar: Waar, Book 1, a hilarious satire on the ribald, retro space fantasies of the 20th century. Soon, Jane's hopelessly wrapped up in bizarre adventures on this planet of sky-pirates and gladiators, including a bid to help a fallen nobleman win back his sexy space princess. Listeners will be bewitched by actress Dina Pearlman's portrayal of Jane, whose Marlboro-cured voice and confident panache makes her swashbuckling space adventures a delightful listen.

Publisher's Summary

This version of Jane Carver of Waar features a soundtrack that includes music and sound effects designed to enhance the listening experience. We will send you a survey in the next few weeks to ask for your feedback on this version. Your feedback will be very helpful and is much appreciated.

Jane Carver is nobody's idea of a space princess. A hard-ridin', hard-lovin' biker chick and ex-Airborne Ranger, Jane is as surprised as anyone else when, on the run from the law, she ducks into the wrong cave at the wrong time - and wakes up butt-naked on an exotic alien planet light-years away from everything she's ever known. Waar is a savage world of four-armed tiger men, sky pirates, slaves, gladiators, and purple-skinned warriors in thrall to a bloodthirsty code of honor and chivalry. Caught up in a disgraced nobleman's quest to win back the hand of a sexy alien princess, Jane encounters bizarre wonders and dangers unlike anything she ever ran into back home. Then again, Waar has never seen anyone like Jane before.

Both a loving tribute and a scathing parody of the swashbuckling space fantasies of yore, Jane Carver of Waar introduces an unforgettable new science-fiction heroine. Nathan Long is a screen and prose writer with two movies, a Saturday-morning adventure series, and several TV episodes to his name. His official website is www.sabrepunk.com.

    "The soundtrack killed the radio star!"

    The author uses horrible descriptions for things like "hungry as damn"...what is that supposed to mean? The situations that are thrust upon Jane and how she handles these situations are unbelievable. The author does not make anything in the story even half way believable and I find that I don't really care what happens to her. Cuss words are thrown in willy-nilly in what I think is an attempt to make her seem more "bad-ass" however it does the exact opposite. It reminds me of Will Smith's character in I, Robot where he tells Shia LaBeouf to stop cussing because he's bad it! The poor story along with the awful accompaniment of the so called soundtrack further makes this book extremely difficult to endure.

    The sound track addition may not have been so horrid if the sound was playing at the same time the words were being spoken. Instead you got a “she could hear the motorcycles approaching her” then you got a motorcycle sound. The same thing happened for each whoop, yell, clang of metal or battle sound. Play the sound at the time the narrator is speaking the words not after as it seems like the sounds were placed there as a “see…I TOLD you they were coming closer”.

    I left this book unfinished and I really don't care how Jane's future played out and will never pick it back up to complete it either!

    A decent book. Because it was just a decent book, I'm having trouble reviewing it, while there isn't anything particularly bad about it, there isn't anything particularly notable about it. <br/><br/>The book starts out very similarly to Princess of Mars, but quickly starts varying. From then on the book is just a fluff read that you can read or listen to while doing other stuff and looking for your next book. What the tin says, you get: a foul-mouthed (seriously why do reviewers complain about the language? What did they expect after reading the publisher's summary?) biker chick roaming and messing around with everything that is holy and acceptable in a barbaric new world.<br/><br/>In regards to this soundtrack version: I really like the idea behind it and it was fairly decent in execution. Most of the time I didn't even notice the soundtrack, but when I did, I felt it was a nice touch. Other books would benefit more from soundtrack editions than this one, so I hope more are produced.<br/><br/>So if that sounds like what you want, then pick this book up.

    I enjoyed listening to this enhanced audio. The background sounds added nicely to the narration.

    "LOVE!"

    It was a great story! The sound track only made it more exciting. I didn't pick this book for myself and I probably never would have, and had very low expectations for it but it was awesome! Such a good story and easy listen, made it very hard to turn off!

    "Not worth the time."

    Received this for free in exchange for a review. I got thru about a minute. The language is crude and the writing offensive.

    "Good story but too long."

    In this book, a biker chick from modern day earth ends up on a different planet, where she becomes somewhat of a superhero. The premise was good but the book went on way too long. There were too many battles. The palace intrigue was a bit hard to follow. I had to push myself to finish, as the first few pages give away the ending.

    However, I thought the performance was good and I really enjoyed the sound effects, which came and went unobtrusively.

    Any additional comments?

    I got this book either free or at a great bargain, I don't remember which. That is why it was in my library. It sat a while, then I decided to listen to it. I am glad that I did. It reminds me of Princess of Mars in that it is about a person traveling through time and space to a different planet. However, the main character is a female and she is not at all genteel. She is a rocker biker and hard as nails. She needs to be since the place she ends up in is hard as nails. Jane picks up a couple of friends on the new planet and they become embroiled in challenging and dangerous situations - due mostly to the beloved of one of Jane's comrades. The beloved causes chaos for the group at every turn.<br/><br/>The writer has a great imagination and creates an entire world with interesting characters, creatures and situations. It was funny and intriguing. The narration was very good. I enjoyed it very much and to think it was a major bargain! I am going to read book 2 in the series to see what happens to Jane next.

    "Worth a listen"

    Entertaining story. The soundtrack/sound effects were a little odd at first but once you get into the story you forget it's there and it just adds to the experience.
