The better of "Princess of Mars" audios

When you're in the public domain you get adapted and sold a lot if you were successful in your time. I bought this because it seemed to have the most enjoyable narrator of the nine versions of this book available on Audible alone. Many of the rest were either poor old recordings or were read by someone who sounded very "Southern Gentleman dandy" while the narrator of the story was a man of war and action. It's a classic sci-fi so it encounters the old sci-fi problems here and there of gender bias, though not as much racism as your Lovecrafts or Conans.

Worth your time if you're up for some old timey science fiction. The story is fun and the characters are mostly naked.

One of the Best Audible listens ever

What made the experience of listening to A Princess of Mars the most enjoyable?

Great narrator.

The story is amazing. It's hard to believe a story written so long ago could feel so modern. Lots of action, flowing story line(no lag) and vivid characters. ERB's writing aided by this narrator, drew me in and held me from beginning to end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

After John Carter himself, it's hard to pick. So I have to say the Green Men of Mars as a whole.

Which scene was your favorite?

The big escape

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
