In Burroughs' Princess of Mars, he describes a lushly realized Mars (Barsoom to its inhabitants) where former Captain John Carter of Virginia can conquer alien civilizations and win the hand of the Martian Princess, Dejah Thoris, the universe's most beautiful woman. (Contrary to many portrayals in art, yes, Burroughs does describe what she's wearing, and, no, it's nothing more than jewelry.) This was followed by two equally fine novels, The Gods of Mars and The Warlord of Mars, as well as a brilliant series of Barsoomian adventures to follow. Is it any wonder a book with such a dreamlike quality can become arguably the world's most widely read novel?

I was eager to reread this classic novel, especially in light of the upcoming movie adaptation. However, the amount of junk and missing words (presumably OCR errors, but perhaps a reader error) in the copy I downloaded to my Color Nook from the B&N store made it difficult to read and enjoy. I do not recommend the ebook edition.

    Poor quality of an eboook

    I started to read the Princess of Mars but quit after the first 7 pages. The quality of transcription was exceedingly poor for this book. words or groups of words missing. I expected higher quality from Barnes and Noble. Good thing it was free.

    Buy the book instead of ebook

    This is an awful copy. Missing words and sentences. This ebook version is not a book - its a puzzle!

    Not Working for me

    I downloaded all four of these, but they will not open and have actually screwed up my nook. I can't open any other books after I have tried to open these books.

    great story but terrible ebook

    The story is a classic and worth the read, but this free edition is full of errors and missing text. Pick up a different copy, please! There are plenty of collections of this series available inexpensively on nook.

    Terrible

    This is a terrible transcription. While I don't doubt the book is good, this ebook is free for a reason. Look elsewhere.
