Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this book in a heartbeat, if read by a different narrator. This narrator mispronounces words, reads every sentence as if there were an exclamation point at the end and generally ruins the story. I find myself doing two things while listening: first, making fun of his style and second, translating his words as if they were read by a competent narrator.
What other book might you compare The Gods of Mars to and why?
This is a typical ERB book. Well written, somewhat predictable but the rewards of a good ending are worth their weight in CD's
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Delloro?
B. J. Harrison
Did The Gods of Mars inspire you to do anything?
Look for the sequel, as read by a more competent narrator

What would have made The Gods of Mars better?
It feels like the narrator, Peter Delloro, is yelling at you the whole time, or at least talking very loudly. There is no fluctuation in his voice. Every word is at the same volume level and I couldn't make it through the first chapter. Try one of the other narrators for this same book so that you can have a better listening experience.
Would you try another book written by Edgar Rice Burroughs or narrated by Peter Delloro?
Working through the Edgar's Mars series... Would not get another book narrated by Peter Delloro.
How could the performance have been better?
The book was narrated in a continuous, strident tone. Most annoying.
