Publisher's Summary

John Carter, an American Civil War veteran, goes prospecting in Arizona and, when set upon by Indians, is mysteriously transported to Mars, called "Barsoom" by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has demigod-like strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. He is soon captured by "Tharks", the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants, and his incredible adventures begin.


What the Critics Say

"As an Earth man who inexplicably fond himself transported to Mars, John Carter became the archetypical fantasy-adventure protagonist. With duty and honor as his basic motivating principles, he bravely plunged headlong into one exciting adventure after another....Sword fights and princess-saving were his specialities." (Nick Evangelista, The Encyclopedia of the Sword)

Well done

I thought the book was excellent, as long as you immediately "suspend your disbelief." I also thought the narration was very good - not over dramatic, but that's the way I like audio books - intelligently read but not "acted out."
These are books, not stage plays, and I like to be able to "create" the characters in my mind, just like I do with the printed word. To each his own, I guess.
