Good hokey fun!
This "classic" pulp sci-fi from 1917 is good hokey fun. It tells the story of Civil War veteran John Carter who is transported to Mars, a planet whose natives are engaged in constant warfare. John Carter's soldier training and muscles adapted to earth's stronger gravity make him a nearly superhuman warrior on Mars as he fights his way through dangers at every turn. There are plenty of convenient coincidences, some cheesy (but chaste) romance, and lots of over-the-top action... just take it all in stride as part of the genre and this is a fun mindless sci-fi read.

I saw the movie before reading the book and really liked it. I was intrigued and picked up the book and ended up liking it as well. It made me sad because the John Carter movie got a bum rap and im afraid it wont get any more big screen chances :( Great book tho.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
