Another excellent book by Burroughs. The John Carter books really set the stage for sci-fi/fantasy storytelling for the last century. This one is every bit as exciting as "A Princess of Mars" with a cliffhanger ending rivaling "The Empire Strikes Back."

A ripping yarn! Although the style of writing and the atmosphere of the story belong to the 1930s the story is exciting and held me spellbound to the end. Parents today may not approve of the constant themes of fighting for country and honour but youngsters today would find it a "jolly good read".

The second book in Burrough's Mars (Barsoom) series, Gods of Mars sends John Carter on another quest to save his beloved Dejah Thoris, even as he discovers two races of supposedly extinct martians and brings down a worldwide religion. This is one of my favorites.
