Civil War veteran John Carter is transported to a dying planet, where he must elude capture by giant green barbarians to rescue a Martian princess from certain doom. In this landmark of science fiction, the myths and mystery of the red planet supply a vibrant backdrop for a swashbuckling epic.

Published in 1911, A Princess of Mars introduced a popular series of novels recounting John Carter's Martian exploits. Author Edgar Rice Burroughs, best known as the creator of Tarzan, employed a new style of writing that combined the genres of fantasy, adventure, and science fiction. His imaginative setting - an advanced but decaying civilization in which Olympian heroics play out against malevolent forces and ever-changing fortunes - endures as a timeless world, in which love, honor, and loyalty form the basis for fast-paced romantic adventures.

    " John carter of mars, savior, messiah, captain, fighting man, resilient gentleman, lover of the beautiful, none of these has Barsoom ever had before. Barsoom has been waiting for someone of his caliber to unite the people's of barsoom. To this we owe fealty to the greatest warrior of two worlds. Absolutely awesomely inspiring. My fave of fave faves. "

    " Fun quick read. Well done given it was written in 1928 - I loved the radium bullets. "

    " Pretty much what I expected. It's a fun, pulpy book; don't go in expecting anything more than that. One thing: it hasn't aged very well. It's still fun and indicative of it's time, but I know that style might not be to everyone's taste. Glad I read it; might hold off on reading the sequels, though!! "

    " I picked up this book because I m a huge tarzen fan. When I started it I didn't like it first, but as I progressed it captured me.i think I can give it three stars for the end. Amazing cliff hanger at the end. I read about the movie and everybody is saying how bad the movie is but after reading this book I wanna see it no matter how bad it is. I found narration of social life of tharks on mars was reference to communism, where everybody has to sacrifices for community. I also find characterization of John carter is shallow. I still liked it. "
