If you could sum up The John Carter Trilogy of Edgar Rice Burroughs in three words, what would they be?
Classic Fantasy Adventure
What was one of the most memorable moments of The John Carter Trilogy of Edgar Rice Burroughs?
While the story was fun, the commentary (written by the reader), was even better. Enjoyably written and made everything deeper.
Which character – as performed by Finn J.D. John – was your favorite?
Dejah Thoris. There's a delightful sincerity to the performance. It's clear that Dejah made the reader's heart flutter as a young man reading these stories for the first time just as she makes John Carter's in the novel.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
If nothing else, just share the reader's initial forward with anyone interested in story. It makes for a great listen, even without the rest of the book.

Chivalry. Helpless damsels in distress. Six limbed space monsters. Swashbuckling. Steampunk style airships. What fun!
The early 20th century ideals in the book may be a little foreign, and definitely outdated to the modern reader, but that's what we're looking for in pulp sci-fi, isn't it? That's part of the charm. The annotations are very well done, and helpful in reminding the reader of the era in which the book was written. It is also very evident, from the very beginning, that these stories have had a major impact on many of our more modern science fiction books and movies . Overall, the stories were interesting and well written. The narrator did a fine job, and was pleasing to listen to. Would recommend.

At the end of each book you are treated to a short lesson that gives a outlines many of the historical references that would be completely lost today to a modern reader.
Great Story. Absolutely awful narration. Someone needs to tell the guy to slow down! It was like he was racing to spill it all out at once. I couldn't even do books 2 and 3 because I found it so hard. I'll definitely be putting a claim in for a return because it was so unenjoyable.
the only downside to this audiobook is the pathetic chapters of modern day uncalled for social justice vomit preceding and following each book, quite blatantly put in place to decide for you your opinions on the work you paid for. Strongly advise skipping said chapters and deciding for yourself!
