Audible Editor Reviews

In the third of Burroughs's "John Carter of Mars" series, the man from Earth unites warring races and is reunited with his love, Dejah Thoris. John Bolen unnecessarily reads the story with a Virginia accent, but he does so effectively and consistently in a way that does not take away from the performance. The recording is unadorned by music or other effects. The story is a fitting and exciting conclusion to the first three audiobooks, and provides a satisfying surprise ending.

A Trip to Mars.

Bolen, in his excellent "southern gentleman" drawl, continues the fascinating story of John Carter's adventures on the planet Mars. The Mars of Burroughs' imagination is a million times more interesting than the harsh and hostile planet we've all read about in science books. This wonderful audiobook will thrill you.

Not as bad as some of the reviews

This is another wonderful entry in the Barsoom saga, and I did enjoy the story. One specific comment I'd like to make is in regards to the quality of the narration; while not the best quality or consistency it is certainly not so bad as to cause me to want to return my purchase or stop listening. IMO if you like Barsoom this version will do until a better version becomes available.
