The Gods of Mars is the second book in Edgar Rice Burroughs' famous Barsoom series. At the end of the first book, A Princess of Mars, John Carter is unwillingly transported back to Earth. The Gods of Mars begins with his arrival back on Barsoom (Mars) after a 10-year hiatus, separated from his wife Dejah Thoris, his unborn child, and the Red Martian people of the nation of Helium, whom he has adopted as his own. Unfortunately, Carter materializes in the one place on Barsoom from which nobody is allowed to depart: the Valley Dor, which is the Barsoomian afterlife.

    " I found this sequel, obviously based on the Odyssey,a much more enjoyable read than the first book.Partially, I suspect that this is because the first book did much of the work of introducing the characters, settings, terms, and ideas that are continued here, allowing this book to spend more time on an actual plot. "

    " After having watched the movie and the first book of the Barsoom series I decided to continue on with this one. Here, you are actually introduced to the Therns and another race, the black pirates. This book was all about how to escape to find his beloved Dejah Thoris. Some parts were predictable, but others we quite surprising. "

    " This book was written almost a hundred years ago. The dialogue is formal in the extreme, but probably typical for the time it was written. Note from Civil War soldiers to their sweethearts and parents were formal, too. Strange, too, in that the Martians use flying machines (which you can fall off of, much as a raft in a river) and still fight with pikes and swords. Oh well, I am still enjoying the stories. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 1/29/2014

    " I absolutely loved this book. There is nothing ground breaking. The writing isn't great. It's just another fun book. There was more depth to this book than the first, and more pain. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flosi | 1/27/2014

    " John Carter escapes the River of Iss and the hideous creatures living in the valley. He then becomes the prisoner of the First Born and finds his son a slave to the Goddess Issus. Of course they both escape through fighting and stealing an air ship to return to Helium to find his beloved has voluntarily gone to the River and 'heaven'. "

    " Just pulp sci fi. Loved it.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erik Braun | 12/24/2013

    " Better then the first. More of the same but with a number of religious and political undertones that carry weight even years later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martyn | 11/23/2013

    " Better than "Princess of Mars". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kaitlin | 10/22/2013

    " While not as good as the first book in the Barsoom series, it is still a fun ride to take to the end. The way in which Burroughs continues to build upon his preexisting world is still entertaining. I recommend this book only for dear lovers of the first in the Barsoom series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joseph Harris | 7/31/2013

    " I never thought I would like a pulpy swashbuckling adventure story, but I'm really enjoying this series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Caleb0199 | 12/31/2012

    " Nowhere near as fun to read as the first book in the series. The setting is different, but held a sense of ugliness for me that was not present in book 1. I will read tune next one, but am certainly hopeful that things turn up from here. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Val Dur | 1/12/2012

    " if you want o know how men and women should be then read E.R.B "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lyssa | 11/25/2011

    " The Gods of Mars has a noticeably different pace than its predecessor. I enjoyed the adventure, of course, but the unknown is what made this book interesting. What's happened in his absence? What has become of his princess? How will he overcome these obstacles? Very fun, quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roman | 11/24/2011

    " The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs (2005) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Barnette | 11/16/2011

    " Second book in the great classic sword and plant series from one of the great masters of the genre. A must read for anyone who likes classic science fiction and the sword and planet sub-genre especially. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 4/29/2011

    " Cliff Hanger ending is awesome. Burroughs is the bomb. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Allisonperkel | 4/17/2011

    " Solid pulp adventure. Not as good as the first book. The second time around feels a little more derivative. Still a lot of fun in a roller coaster sort of way. Highly enjoyable reading candy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelvin | 3/22/2011

    " Just finished reading the Barsoom serial, which I have on my kindle. These are excellent book to read, I'm really getting into E.R.B. style. It was a shame to find I reach the end on the books. I got totally absorbed into them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daniel | 2/20/2011

    " Even better than the first, but wasn't expecting the abrupt ending. It is interesting to read a hero whose only fault is being TOO honorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicholas | 1/15/2011

    " What a fun book. There were almost continuous sword battles in this one, and again we have the main character starting a war, killing thousands just to save his princess. Inspiring. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 9/4/2010

    " Second book in the great classic sword and plant series from one of the great masters of the genre. A must read for anyone who likes classic science fiction and the sword and planet sub-genre especially. "

    " Book two of my treadmill series. A guilty pleasure that distracts me from my workouts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jason | 7/17/2010

    " The cliffhanger at the end was enough to make me want to dig up Edgar Rice Burroughs and punch him in the skeleton.

    The pace was almost too fast, but at the same time impossible to put down.

    Would make an excellent big-budget summer blockbuster. "
