Two years before Edgar Rice Burroughs became a worldwide celebrity with the publication of Tarzan of the Apes, he published A Princess of Mars. A futuristic sci-fi fantasy romance, A Princess of Mars tells the story of John Carter, a Civil War veteran who inexplicably finds himself held prisoner on the planet Mars by the Green Men of Thark. Together with Dejah Thoris, the princess of another clan on Mars, the unlikely pair must fight for their freedom and save the entire planet from destruction as the life-sustaining Atmosphere Factory slowly grinds to a halt.

    " I'm not a fan of First Person Stories, but this worked very well. Some of the language is very dated, I actually had to look up a few words to understand there meaning. "

    " Excellent book, it was really interesting to read a book written back in 1912, since back then people had a much different perspective. "

    " I actually started it a month or two ago and it was enjoyable enough,not bad,written in the style of the time,not entirely politically correct and so not for everyone. As it is part of a long series it will be unlikely that I finish all of them. It ends well enough as a single read though,you can pretty much call it a probably happy ending if you use a little imagination. I would have liked more of Sola than the princess. If you get bored by books with a lot of technical details you may get lost at times. Even I did now and then and I usually like that sort of thing. Short review I guess,but it's really not complicated otherwise... "

    " Decent enough, but pretty dated style. Very little dialog - frankly more of a historical artifact than engaging on it's own merits. "
