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.
