I really loved this series when I first read them about ten years ago and couldn't remember very much that happened and decided I had to go back and read them again. I really did enjoy Princess of Mars lots. Because I'd just seen the film I was spending a lot of time thinking about what was different and what was the same.

I was surprised that Dejah Thoris actually wasn't a fighter as well as scientist and princess and I had remembered her seriously kicking butt. But still she was pretty great. I also loved Sola even more this time around. She was a much stronger character than in the film.
