Publisher's Summary

Former earthman Tarl Cabot has been struggling to free himself from the cruel control of the Priest-Kings of Gor to no avail. As he pits his strength against such a formidable enemy, a terrible beast appears from the mysterious northern lands, bearing a token of the demise of Tarl's once-beloved woman Talena. The missive is a sign of defiance and disrespect from his enemies, meant to humiliate him and force him to challenge them in response. To gird his weapons and set out on a mission of vengeance against those who sent the beasts means Tarl must jeopardize his fortune and position as a wealthy slave merchant.

But he is no longer practical and calm as he was on Earth. He must conform to the social codes of Gor, where the only way one can avenge wounded manhood is to respond with all one's might!

slow start but picks up.

a very slow start but as it goes on the pace dramatically improves. over all I'd say another glorious piece to the world of Gor.

Repeat it again Sam.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

When I was a teenager, I truly loved these books. As I listen to them now, I remembered that there were spots that I skipped over because John Norman has this thing about telling you the same thing over and over and over.... Now they just seem monotonous. Female slaves rape rape rape... little bit of action... Female slaves rape rape rape (but always the woman truly and deeply desires this treatment.) The manliness of her man, and the womanliness of herself over take any rational thought she might have. I guess when I was a teenager, just the word "breast" and the thought of a naked woman was enough to capture my attention... Now, not so much!

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Too much emphasis on subjugation of females. Wow... They are slaves.... I think if he took one and fully developed her as a real woman and a companion to Tarl, this could have really been a good series. Realistically, I can't think of any real woman who would be raped repeatedly and willingly submit to and deeply desire her rapist, unless she had been physiologically damaged. There is way too much discussion about this and not enough emphasis on the action. Carl Tabot seems, at points to have deep loyalties, but when it comes to women, these can change in a flash. There has yet to be a woman in this series that he has stayed loyal to.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

Maybe just for nostalgic reasons. They would need to perform the "Hollywood transformation" and make a lot of changes in the male - female relationship realm. Maybe have Tarlena actually become Tarl's companion in his adventures.

Gorean Saga

The Gorean series is basically Conan the barbarian meets a smut novel on another world. There's lots of violent battles and vicious giant man eaters with a dash BDSM. The series gets a little repetitive as the books go on but not to badly for a 20 plus book series. If you liked the John Carter in 'A Princess of Mars' series most likely you'll enjoy these books there very similar. I prefer the Gorean series myself, except the ones narrated by women which I haven't bought so don't know if there good or not I personal dislike women narrates.

waste of a credit.

Has Marauders of Gor turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

Would you be willing to try another one of Ralph Lister’s performances?

Yes

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No.

Any additional comments?

I might have enjoyed this book in print, where I could scan sections that I found inactive. As an audio book, there are too few events to keep me engaged.<br/>
