Editorial Reviews

Tales of fantastic adventure were much beloved in early twentieth-century America, and no writer rode the crest more effectively than Edgar Rice Burroughs, creator of the Tarzan and the Princess of Mars series, among others. His works, with many million sold, are gradually entering the public domain. Pellucidar begins the seven-volume saga of David Innes and his exploration of the savage inner side of our supposedly hollow earth. An eternal noonday sun illumines a land of huge and ravenous beasts, many prehistoric; fierce humans; and other intelligent life-forms. Patrick Lawlor is good with characterization. Especially good at bringing excitement into his youthful-sounding voice, he makes the listener want to keep listening.

Publisher's Summary

In this sequel to At the Earth's Core, David Innes vows revenge and returns to the Inner World of Pellucidar to rescue the beautiful Dian, who had been torn from his arms by trickery. However, his return trip places him far from the land of his beloved and he is forced to undertake a desperate journey thousands of miles across the fierce inner earth to reach her.

David's epic voyage takes him through the many strange lands of Pellucidar, including the pendant moon and Land of Awful Shadow. His heart pounding encounters with primeval beasts and extraordinary peoples makes Pellucidar one of the best adventure stories ever penned by Edgar Rice Burroughs.

A story for all ages.

James Slattery, who read At the Earth?s Core, the first book in this series, was perfect. Patrick Lawlor does a good job, except for an occasional character?s voice. This book is more similar to a Jules Verne fantasy than modern science fiction. The book was written in 1915. The story line contains too many remarkable coincidences, but the story is easy to follow and I did enjoy the book. The book is PG but it would receive an R rating today because of violence. These are the stories I wish I?d read as a child but they are stories for all ages.

Enjoyable but felt rushed (spoiler maybe)

As a sequel this is still a good book, story is detailed and entertaining but just felt rushed. Gaps that made me wonder and turns that did not make sense. Still was a good story. It's an old story and a good conclusion. So enjoyed but left me a little wanting.
