Classic serial adventure

If you liked "The Rocketeer", "Tarzan", or adventure serials of the past like "Buck Rogers" and "Superman", then you'll likely enjoy the Barsoom Series. While the language may be a bit clunky at times, the spirit of adventure and narrow escapes is pure genre fun.

I find Burroughs' writing style hard to read. This is the first book of his I've read and if this is indicative of his normal style, I don't like it. Story may be good but he tries too hard to use unnecessarily obscure wording when simpler words and/or sentence structure would be much better.

    John Carter Classic

    This series is long. I have yet to finish it, but the first book I wanted to read due to the movie, "John Carter on Mars". I was completely intrigued and enthralled in both the movie and book and it kept me interested enough to continue to the next book in the series. I only gave it a 3-star because it does tend to get a little dry and I personally have a hard time reading the classic novelists due to the difference in the the English language of yester-year compared to today. But overall, I would recommend if you are into a pseudo Civil War era Space Science Fiction type of story.

    Interesting but. . .

    Not science fiction, fantasy and Edgar Rice Burroughs uses scenarios over and over, if you are on a long trip and need a read this should do it for you
