    Thuvia, Maid of Mars ok, Chessmen of Mars great

    I would give this book 5 stars for The Chessmen of mars alone, it didn't get 5 because Thulvia Maid of Mars was 3 stars at the best. I have read the first 5 of the martian Tales by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and in my opinion, The Chessmen of Mars is the best of the 5. The plot, the actions, the politics and the themes, which are actually thought provoking, make The Chessmen of Mars must reading.

    Martian Tales

    Edgar Rice Burroughs was my favorite author in the 1960's, and I read all of his books that were printed by Ballantine paperbacks. I am happy to see his Martian Tales printed in two volumes. I just wish that Barnes & Noble would do the same for the Tarzan series.

    Certainly Worth Reading, but Pales in Comparison to the First Three

    I was in love with the original trilogy and had heard that there were more, and upon hearing this, ran to the nearest B&N and grabbed "More Martian Tales." I was somewhat disappointed, but not entirely.<BR/><BR/>John Carter is not the main character of these two works. The son of John Carter and his love, Dejah Thoris, however, is. Carthoris still has the superhuman strength of John Carter, but is not the Warlord of Barsoom. John Carter does not die in these books, but fades into the background, mostly only being mentioned in the context of "for John Carter, Warlord of Barsoom!"<BR/><BR/>Carthoris, while closely resembling John Carter in personality and physical strength, isn't as personal as John Carter is to the Earthling reader. John Carter represents the reader, and you feel as if you are John Carter, an Earthling in a foreign world, whereas Carthoris is an alien, and feels as such.<BR/><BR/>Carthoris's story closely resembles John Carter's, in that he ventures Barsoom, mostly searching for his reckless maiden, Thuvia. Thuvia is actually the main character of the second of these books, and becomes annoying multiple times. She is childish and foolish, but still has a charm about her that keeps me reading.<BR/><BR/>Overall, these two books, while not nearly as charming or original as the first, are still good reads in and of themselves.
