    Description

    John Carter and the Giant of Mars is part of the famous Barsoom science fiction series, written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Co-written with his son, John Coleman Burroughs, it follows the story of the adventurous Carter and the princess he loves, Dejah Thoris. As the book opens, the two of them are attacked, and Dejah is carried away, leaving Carter to wonder whether he will ever see her again. He calls on his friend Tars Tarkas to help, but their journey to recover the princess is an eventful and sometimes dangerous one. Among other encounters, they have to face a city populated entirely by rats - not to mention, of course, the giant of Mars - who is no less than 130 feet tall! This tale is full of incident and variety, as well as a range of fantastic and memorable characters, making it a book that readers of all ages will take to their hearts.

    Fun short story

    Another tale of John Carter is always welcome but the narrator cannot top Eric Vincent

    Not ERB at his best - but nice to have

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If they are into the John Carter series, then yes. For non-series reader, probably not. The style is quite dated and not the best in the series.

    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    John Carter himself. The concept of an Earthman moved to Mars and there, becoming a hero.

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    It was fine. Melodramatic and fitting for the time and style of the writing.

    Do you think John Carter and the Giant of Mars needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, sadly, this was one of the last, uncompleted stories of Burroughs when he passed away. Better to remember the writings at their height.

    Any additional comments?

    An ok story - mostly for the completist. Listening it is very similar to listening to a radio dram similar to a Flash Gordon or Buck Rogers. If you like those, you may well enjoy this.

    The series

    I love the John Carter series. The story is very original.
    But with the last few books. as with this one. You can tell Burrough's is getting tired of JC.
    Still loved to hear the story. But this one is my least favorite
