    " On hearing about the movie, I decided I must read the book/s. I never did get to see the movie so I can't compare ERB writing to the film. John Carter suddenly wakes to find himself on Mars after being trapped in a cave on Earth. In book you get the idea that he wished himself there, I think an inter dimensional porthole is more likely. But I must remember this book was written 100 years ago and Boroughs was writing a new genre. The characters are thinly written, what you have is brave hero John Carter making friends with his captor. Wins the love of a Princess and her people. Makes a loyal pet of the beast set to guard him. This story was written as serial story in a magazine most likely aimed at teenage boys. I did enjoy reading this book. "

    " It was okay, not what I expected really. It was well written though. "

    " Pop sci-fi, old school. Yeah, baby "

    " When I was 11 or 12, I absolutely loved the Tarzan books, but I never read any of his science fiction. I'm not 11 or 12 anymore and my taste is scifi also has the benefit of a lot of reading in the genre. Even so, it was a good "beach read". It won't wear out your brain cells and it really moves along! "

    " Edgar Rice Burroughs was really a great author. I know these stories are pulp, but I bet just about anybody could read one of his books, even non-readers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert Lewter | 2/2/2014

    " Super! I love the Barsoom stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hector Ibarraran | 1/29/2014

    " Really had fun reading this free book. I can see how Burroughs would have inspired a young Carl Sagan to explore the misters of the universe. In this book, we find every conceivable campy motif in science fiction, but without any hint of irony. A high octane adventure that feels like a mix of Indiana Jones and Conan the Barbarian. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kimberly Davis | 1/15/2014

    " I loved the storyline, and the world felt very real. I loved learning about the different cultures and customs of the two Martian races. The book ended on a big cliffhanger, I'm already starting on book 2. Great love story with lots of action and adventure, with a definite sci-fi feel to it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tristy | 1/15/2014

    " My first science fiction book, loved it not just for the story but because it was my dad's book, and now we had something in common. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt Harrison | 1/12/2014

    " It wasn't horrible. But the ending just about ruined it for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Harold | 12/9/2013

    " Beautiful story of adventure and romance on the red planet! Amazing cultures, characters and histories! What a tale! What a series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendra | 11/16/2013

    " Author's amazing ability to foresee the future & create a vivid landscape with interesting characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Catherine | 10/6/2013

    " Now and again I like to investigate the classics of a literary genre, which is why I picked up this book. Written in 1911, published in 1917, it is dated and a touch hokey, but still exciting and fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 James | 7/29/2013

    " I love these John Carter books by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I'd read them as a teenager and was pleased to see them available for free (my favorite price) on the Project Gutenberg site. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flosi | 11/21/2012

    " A wonderful sense of imagination and art drawn together in a fantasy that still lives in the books Burroughs wrote. John Carter is still 'alive' with the recent release of a movie. Good show E R Bireoughs! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jaq Greenspon | 10/15/2012

    " It's been a while since I read this and it holds up but barely. It is certainly a boy's own adventure and as a 15 year old it was amazing. As an adult it's a little ragged and the pulp hero ideal is dated. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Angela | 10/14/2012

    " (Semi-LibriVoxed.) FINALLY. Ugh. The best thing about this book was the end. I don't mean that snarkily, I really mean that. The ending was actually quite touching and well-done. Everything else leading up to it, though: less so. Uggghhhh. I need a brain-scrub. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry Steinmetz | 1/28/2012

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Berntson | 9/11/2011

    " In some ways it is a bit dated, our concept of scifi is much more refined now. And it is a really good ripping yarn! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 8/20/2011

    " A fun adventure if a little slow at times.Quick and mostly satisfying. it's obviously not trying to be realistic or true to fact so don't read it expecting to end up knowing more about mars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 William Striegel | 1/13/2011

    " Great pulp science fiction story. The pacing is a little off, but on the whole a really good read. "

    " One of my all-time favorite series...Burroughs is a master craftsman & I never tire of these stories... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steve & Nancy | 6/17/2009

    " This is really just the first three books of the martian series combined into one volumn. I was disappointed because I thought I had found a Burroughs martian book I had not read. The martina series is awesome "

    " JOHN CARTER OF FREAKING MARS FTW! "

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875–1950), born in Chicago, was educated at Michigan Military Academy and served briefly in the US Cavalry. He began writing while working as a pencil-sharpener salesman, publishing his first piece in 1912 to great success. He authored numerous science fiction and fantasy series but is most famous for his Tarzan books; the suburb of Los Angeles where he lived eventually became known as Tarzana.
