Publisher's Summary

For six long Martian months, John Carter has haunted the terrifying Temple of the Sun. Inside the walls of this mysterious revolving tower is his beloved wife, Dejah Thoris, the beautiful princess of Barsoom. Worse yet, his wife is trapped there with the lovely but wicked Phaidor, who has sworn to make John Carter her own - even if it means murder. How can Carter gain access to the Temple, whose doors swing open only once a year? And when he does find his way inside, will he find Dejah Thoris's welcoming embrace - or her corpse?

Awesome Adventure Completed from book 2

If you could sum up John Carter in The Warlord of Mars in three words, what would they be?

Very good listen

What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I cant listen to John Carter unless it is Scott Brick now

Any additional comments?

Books two and three are a movie makers dream come true

John Carter does our again - even better

Such classic space opera shouldn't be missed. John Carter meets new Martians and has to battle new foes and old. He makes it back to Barsoom (Mars) but is thwarted in finding home and family. In the mean time he has to solve a world of problems from false gods to evil villains that just won't stay down. Classic wiring style and beautiful language you don't hear much anymore. Well worth the listen as Scott Brick has style in reading that is a pleasure to listen to.

Heat story and best narratin

Scott Brick's narration are the best. I finished the first three and can't imagine anyone else doing better than he does. Thanks Scott! Hope you do the rest of the series.

Fantastic Narration with a Substandard Storyline

I am a huge fan of the previous two books. They were immensely entertaining and provided me much amusement on some rather dull work days. But The Warlord of Mars kind of sold itself short. It was predictable, repetitive, and laborious to get through if I am being honest. I know the John Carter series continues on for another few books, but I don't think I will continue the saga. The ending thankfully doesn't end on a cliffhanger, and the primary story arc wraps up nicely at the end allowing this clean break. Scott Brick makes a wonderful John Carter, and he did a surprisingly great job with the material he had to work with.

If you have read or listened the first two novels, you will definitely want to finish this one. But will you be as dissatisfied as me? Who knows. Maybe it will appeal to you more than me. For now though, I am finished with the John Carter series unless I should get a hankering in the future for some pulpy scifi.

Excellent. Even on my 100th (or so) read.

What did you love best about John Carter in The Warlord of Mars?

This is one of the first sci-fi/fantasy novels I ever read as a kid. Since then I have re-read the entire series at least twice a year for about 35 years running.

What was one of the most memorable moments of John Carter in The Warlord of Mars?

The fight with the giant wasp.

Which scene was your favorite?

The end scene

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

I doubt they'll make another JC movie. Which is a shame. I really enjoyed the one Disney did a few years ago.

Any additional comments?

This is just like every other John Carter of Mars book. Contrived, repetitive, silly.

Yet oh, so fun. Turn off your brain and just enjoy it.

An excellent end to an amazing chapter of the story of barsoom!

This is the end of the first half of the story of Barsoom, as John Carter and Deja Thoris find their happy ending together, and the shift of focus turns to Carthoris, their son in the subsequent books. This book was incredibly interesting, well structured, action packed, and an absolute thrill ride from start to finish! I loved this and the previous two books, and will keep them in my collection of all time favorites! Great story, great narrator, 5 out of 5!

Satisfying

I have enjoyed Edgar Rice Burroughs's works since childhood. Scott Brick does an excellent job of bringing this story to life.

No

The narrator was great and in fact I think I'll choose another title by this narrator.
The plot was very boring (spoiler alert)..like super Mario Brothers..just when you get to the princess she's taken away again several times lol

PurpleProse, from another time about another world

Wild and sincere, unintentionally goofy at times. SiFi written by a personality shaped in the timeframe that Steampunk references. Check your 21st century earthly brain at the door.

Hurrah!

It's no secret that I love Rice-Burroughs. Some of the plot is guessable but I found that I was so caught up in the moment that I didn't want to think ahead-draw the book out as far as possible!
