Written by EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS Told by STAN WINIARSKI "I stood on the Arizona bluff with my attention drawn to the large red star, Mars. I closed my eyes, stretched out my arms and was drawn through the trackless immensity of space. I opened my ...
my eyes upon a strange landscape."
Suddenly projected to Mars, John Carter found himself a captive of the savage green men of Thark. With him was Dejah Thoris, lovely Princess of Helium. And between them and rescue, lay a thousand miles of deadly enemies and unknown dangers. Told by Stan Winiarski
So having seen the John Carter movie I really wanted to go back and re-read Princess of Mars.

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. In the book the war between the humanoid Martians is much less important before the end. 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. I loved that she was the Martian who had experienced love and loss and was more of an actual person than most of the characters in the book. I loved the way that John always knows he's on Mars and never wants to go back. It was very enjoyable to read again....Continua Nascondi
