Summary

John Carter, Prince of Helium, has been imprisoned for a Martian year, his wife in another cell - alive or dead, he doesn't know.

In this continuation of the saga of the amazing world of Barsoom, the love story of Carter and Dejah Thoris - the red-skinned, oviparous princess - unfolds. Like all the tales in the series, fantasy and adventure combine in a style as malleable as dreams, exotic and dangerous and unending.

Pulp

No improvement to the low standard of the 2nd book. This writer appears to have no hidden depths. Another one for the Proud Boys.

love the barsoom trilogy.

I love the barsoom trilogy. But the narrator slowly gets harder to bear throughout the three books. The voices done, are grating and hard to listen to at times. In the third book, it seems some lines were forgotten and had to be dubbed into the recording thereafter, only with different recording equipment or something, for it's extremely obvious when the voice changes in quality. often better quality might I add.

He doesn't hold back.

Bring it.

Any additional comments?

The John Carter books are all fantastic

Disappointing!

This is the 3rd book in the series, and my second audiobook (of the series). It's not getting any better. I typically enjoy William Dufris' work, but this was terrible. I will be returning this book.

Wonderful love story that delighted my 12 year old daughter.
Exciting fights to keep my 15 years old son listening.
Fascinating characters, aliens, animals and people alike.
A book for all ages. The whole series is a good voyage.

Great story, terrible production

The forced, mock southern accent of the narrator was too much for me to bear, I actually bought another production just so that I might hear this great tale.

More old fashioned fun

Impossibly heroic John Carter pursues bad guys all over Mars to save the incomparable Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium. All female characters fall passionately in love with Carter, who remains faithful to Dejah Thoris, while the worst bad guys are obsessed with Dejah Thoris (but don't actually hurt her). Carter's Victorian rhetoric never fails him through endless improbable coïncidences and plot twists, some of which are actually surprising. Burroughs'imagination also never fails him - new treats include magnetic weapons, secret communicating rings and arctic cities in greenhouses. The narrator is great - he really gets into the spirit!

Great Conclusion!

This was a great close to the series, with a complete, real ending. Constant action and fun like the previous two books. Good values, including working together with those from different cultures and backgrounds than your own, and fighting for love. Edgar Rice Burroughs was a real talent! Would read again. The narration is good, too, once you listen a few minutes to get used to the southern accent (because John Carter is from Virginia).

Engaging story.

Aside from the audio editing it was engaging. Who am I to critique. Just a lonesome hobo…
