Indeed, I must admit my interest in John Carter has been peaked by the recent release of the film trailer. After finishing the first [book] in a matter of days I then eagerly ploughed into book 2. Such a good story in a retro - pulp - saturday morning serial kind of way! High adventure and swash buckling fights added to a rather gory opening which eventually build up to an epic set piece at the end of the book. I really hope that the new Disney film is successful and the studio make the second book into a movie.

The book itself is beautifully written in my opinion, easy to read and never boring or tedious. The descriptions are superb and imaginative giving the reader a vivid idea of the Barsoom world. The actual story line is fairly predictable, but only because it has been so borrowed from. After reading the first book I realised and understood why some recent films have been criticised for ripping off the essence of the John Carter story. There are elements in the second book which I also recognise in some films. To be fair this only adds to how good the story is and confirms just how original and imaginative Burroughs was.

I am now a firm fan of the story and look forward to book 3. I am waiting for the release of the next book by Sterling Press as firstly, they are new editions and secondly the cover artwork is superb!!!

I have spoken.

By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Feb. 2014
Format: Paperback
When we last saw John Carter, he had been accidentally transferred back to Earth, and away from his beloved Dejah Thoris. Well, obviously in a novel named "The Gods of Mars," he isn't going to stay on his home planet. But Edgar Rice Burroughs' second Barsoom novel introduces a whole new dilemma for our hero -- how to get back to the world of the living.

John Carter returns to Mars, but is shocked to find that he's in a completely unfamiliar part of it, populated by grotesque Plant Men and white apes. After encountering his old friend Tars Tarkas, Carter learns that they are in the Barsoomian afterlife. The problem is, nobody can return from the pilgrimage to the River Iss -- and if anyone tries, they will be killed.

But the greatest threat comes from two breeds of Martian that Carter has never seen before -- the Black Martian pirates and the White Martian Therns, both of whom consider themselves to be gods.

Anyone who survives the valley is turned into a slave, and Carter soon makes new allies among his fellow captives. But even if he can escape the grasp of the "goddess" Issus, he may not be able to survive in a world where escaping from "death" is blasphemy -- especially when he finds that Dejah Thoris may be doomed as well.

"The Gods of Mars" is a much faster-moving story than the first Barsoom book, even though we're introduced to a whole new part of Mars and two new Martian species. Burroughs just plunges right into the main story right away, and it's a long time before he stops to contemplate the flora/fauna/customs of the Martians.

We last left John suffocating and wondering if we will ever see him again (except for those few intrepid people that dare to read ahead)

"Twelve years passed since I laid the body of my great-uncle, Captain John Carter, of Virginia, way form the sight of men in that strange mausoleum in the old Cemetery at Richmond."

John returns to a Mars he never saw before yet soon finds old friends and new adventures. Not everything is black and white as in the Saturday morning cowboys. The story is a never-ending series of last minute escapes until the very end when, well read the book and find out. Once again, we get to kibitz.

What can i say? This is an amazing book from the Edgar Rice Burroughs series for Barsoom. As a matter of fact, i immediately bought them as soon as i say the movie John Carter. The artwork is amazing on the title page, the paper quality and print quality is high. The book itself has been a hell of a ride and is probably the most interesting thing that i have read in a few years. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.

Really great rip roaring adventure full of action and passion. John Carter, the central character is like an Indiana Jones on steroids and the later was probably based on John Carter. I highly recommend this book to those that like sci-fi/fantasy and adventure novels.
