    Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs is a fun book Taking up where A Princess of Mars left off, it is the story of John Carter s second visit to Barsoom and chronicles his encounter with an ancient religion that has deceived Martian culture Entertaining, imaginative and even a little allegorical it also displays Burroughs knack for weaving a cliffhanger, as every other chapter finds the characters in some trouble they cannot get out of Even the ending is designed to make the reader want to bu Gods of Mars by Edg...

    Fun, a whole lot of heroic, cheesy fun That is the best way I can think of to describe the Barsoom series by Edgar Rice Burroughs This is not great literature and there are some attitudes towards women and minorities that need to be overlooked as a sign of the times But there is also adventure and thrills on almost every page and John Carter is a larger than life good guy. I didn t like this quite as much as the first one, in part because they are structured almost the same and so a bit of t Fun, a whole lot of heroic, cheesy fun That is the best way I can think of to describe the Barsoom series by Edgar Rice Burroughs This is not great literature and there are some attitudes towards women and minorities that need to be overlooked as a sign of the times But there is also adventure and thrills on almost every page and John Carter is a larger than life good guy.

    This is only half of the 2d book in the Barsoom series Yes, I know the next one is called book 3, but he cliff hanger that this book leaves us on should be a shooting offense Before starting this book, make certain you have The Warlord of Mars Barsoom, 3 you carry it with you when you get close to the end of this book If not, you will almost certainly die of massive frustration It s another quick, fun read by one of the masters of...
