I read this book in high school back in the sixties, and loved it. I got an electronic copy to reread because of the upcoming movie, "John Carter." I found the story as compelling today as I did back then; additionally, I found that the story included some barbs aimed at society that I missed as a teenager. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes science fiction and fantasy.
