A Princess of Mars is the first novel in Edgar Rice Burroughs's famous Barsoom science fiction series. John Carter, a Confederate American Civil War veteran is mysteriously transported to Mars, called Barsoom by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has great strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. Carter soon falls in among the Tharks, a nomadic tribe of the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants. Thanks to his strength and combat abilities he rises in position in the tribe and earns the respect and eventually the friendship of Tars Tarkas, one of the Thark chiefs.

    " A fun adventure. I'm interested enough to read more. The problem I have with the style is that it's a whole lot of telling and not enough showing. So, I'm glad I read it on audiobook, because that format fits the telling nature of the story. "

    " Loved these books! Read them as a kid. They were my "Harry Potters". "

    " Got a little bored of John Carter constantly telling us how awesome he is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 J. | 8/14/2013

    " Fun read especially for children and young adults "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott Marlowe | 8/13/2013

    " Pretty shallow writing and a meandering story, but at least I can now check this classic off the list. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 8/7/2013

    " Good book with some beautiful writing, but I didn't feel like finishing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandra Way | 7/13/2013

    " I had to read this after I saw the movie 'John Carter'. The book has so much more than the movie. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amy | 6/27/2013

    " Ok, So I saw the Disney movie and loved it so i decided to read the book on good reads. I love it. It was so good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda | 6/22/2013

    " A fun diversion the last couple days. It was classic adventure and romance that was short and sweet. Better than the movie although I did like that movie Dejah could handle a sword. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Capri | 5/3/2013

    " Excellent! Very imaginative. I cannot wait to read ehat happed in John Carter' future adventures. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeremy DeBottis | 3/20/2013

    " An interesting story, and definitely an accomplishment for the time it was written as far as sci-fi goes, but things just come to the main character too easy. It seems like an endless list of challenges that he easily overcomes before moving to the next. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Boler | 2/23/2013

    " I liked it for the most part, although it was hard to follow at times there was alot of time that would just be skipped over and you would only hear what happened afterward, kinda wierd, cant wait to read the next in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Arun | 7/21/2012

    " Much well & convincingly written, compared to the apeman in the Jungle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melissa | 5/6/2012

    " Wish I could give 3 1/2 stars. It was a solid story with all the pulpy / culty / sci-fi-y goodness. Lots of good imagination and setup of this new planet and culture without thousands of pages worth of description - which I feel is an art that needs to be re-kindled. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry Steinmetz | 8/9/2011

    " Great fun. What a fantastic imagination Burroughs has. I also like the nature of the the main character. The very defination of what it means to be a man. I have two young sons and would like them to read this book for that reason. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ezra | 4/12/2011

    " The plot doesn't hold up to today's standards. It is an interesting read if you'd like to see the early days of modern science-fiction and revel in just how far we've come both in imagination and quality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay DeVine | 12/8/2010

    " What a fun book! Sure, this book is a little over the top, but it's one of the ones that started it all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ann | 10/30/2010

    " Very entertaining. A quick fun read. Mars is a rip roaring crazy place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victor Orozco | 6/9/2010

    " Very nice story. This deserved to be made into a movie years ago. The Sci-Fi Western genre something made famous by Star Wars and Dune. B+. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terry | 1/13/2010

    " I loved these book in elementary school, before Star Wars, before Star Trek. I decided to re-read after seeing "John Carter". What was it that I found so intriguing? "
