Description

Tarl has dedicated his life to ensuring that the Priest-Kings survive the harsh lands of Gor, but a savage tribe that closely guards its secrets has halted his quest. To continue it, Tarl must unravel the mysteries of this strange, private band of nomads called the Wagon People at risk of his life. He is the only man alive who has not trembled in the presence of this mysterious tribe.

Now he is embarking on the most perilous adventure of his time on the counter-world of Gor. Will he be accepted by the tribe and learn the secrets they guard with their lives - or will he die trying?

The saga continues: listen to more in the Gorean series.

Gorean: Love it or Hate it...."but"

First of all, you either love or hate this series, but it has survived and has thousands of fans who love Norman's world and some who even incorporate elements of his philosophy into their lives. I read the series as a young man and have always loved it and perhaps it saved me from the ruins of feminism.

The books are well read and I hope you create audible versions of all twenty-six...I will buy them all and encourage others who love the Gorean saga to do the same.

HOWEVER...the female parts need to be voiced by a female....instead of sounding realistic, it sounds stupid to have female voices read by a male. I would pay extra for this and think it would be so much more enjoyable.

Chuvanistic, Clichee and very Interesting

You can not expect (hope but not expect) different from a 60's Sifi/Fantasy writer who makes very clear differences between the Dominent Male and the Submissive female. If this would bother you in a book; leave it alone.

Norman can make a world come to life. Although the main character is a bit 2 dimensional and again clicheed somehow the story line and description of the world still intriguies me. It may be the fact that i read this for the first time in the 60's or it may just be the clarity and simplicity of the story and characters but i liked it. So much so that i did get the following books and will continue to get them as quickly as Audibel get's them on line.

Handle with care but otherwise a good "take me away from this place" read!

Adventure at its best.

Did not enjoy the controversial aspect of the story details. However, this is definitely one of my favorites in the series. I particularly enjoyed the humor of the characters that is not common in most of the series.

The Best and Worst of the Gor Saga

If you only read 1 Gor book, Nomads of Gor should be the one. It shows the very best of John Norman's writing ability. The Wagon People are epic world building, and you will feel like you have been a part of them all of your life. You understand their honor, their customs, and their games. You hurt with them, and you cheer for the "wily Tuchuks." The action is intense and the stakes are high. It's very well written and shows how these books have created an entire subculture who, like Elizabeth Cardwell, want to live in Gor forever.

It also shows the beginning of the end - not the end of the series - there were 30+ more books -- but the end of the great writing. Chapter 25, aptly named, "I am Served Tea" (yep its that exciting) - is the longest chapter in the book and it takes 1 hour and 19 minutes of a 15 hour book. It is 1 conversation between Tarl and Elizabeth about whether or not she should/wants/is a slavgirl. Back and forth they talk, and talk, and talk. Tarl says idiotic things like 2 sentences after freeing her because slavery is wrong "I thought of raping her, but that would never do for a free woman." So - slavery is wrong, except that he spend ages telling Elizabeth that it makes women better (there's an intensely looonnggggg back and forth over what makes a woman a woman) so then it's right. As the books progress these long exchanges about Female Submission dominate the books and the very cool action and worlds take a back seat.

So - read Nomads and love every minute of it (except maybe Chapter 25) but cry when you finish, because you've reached the end of the greatness.

Could have been Epic

If no for this idiotic fetish for female slavery this series could have been one of the best. But no, the author fell further and further into that rut as time went by. A mostly wasted career.

excellent, but predictable, story

Very good story, but predictable plot with "Hollywood" ending. Maybe not as predictable when published in 1969.
