"The Gods of Mars" is the second volume of the famous Barsoom series. It was first published in All Story as a five part serial in the issues for January May 1913. It was later published as a complete novel by A. C. McClurg in September, 1918.
At the end of the first book, "A Princess of Mars", John Carter is unwillingly transported back to Earth. "The Gods of Mars" begins with his arrival back on Barsoom (Mars) after a ten year separation from his wife Dejah Thoris, his unborn child, and the Red Martian people of the nation of Helium, whom he has adopted as his own. Unfortunately, Carter materializes in the one place on Barsoom from which nobody is allowed to depart: the Valley Dor, which is the Barsoomian afterlife.

Good book - poor performance
A narrator who could read without stumbling over the words, who didn't start to say one word and then correct it to another, and who didn't take loud breaths and smack his lips while reading.
As in the other Barsoom books, I liked John Carter, even though he is arrogant most of the time.
He did a terrible job reading the book. It was miserable and embarrassing to listen to.
The book by Edgar Rice Burroughs was good, as are most of his books.
Sorry I bought this edition instead of the other version they offered for a couple of dollars more!
