Overview

Boring 500 miles through the earth's crust in their "iron mole," David Innes and Professor Perry make the astonishing discovery that the earth's center is hollow and the site of an amazing interior world -- Pellucidar! It is at a Stone Age level of development, dominated by chilling reptilian monsters with a high degree of intelligence who communicate through extrasensory means. Evolution is proceeding along different lines in Pellucidar than it did on the Earth's surface, and human beings are treated as inferior creatures. Danger and violence are the rule in this land of perpetual noon (the sun is always at the zenith), where time does not exist. In this second novel of the Pellucidar trilogy (the others are At the Earth's Core and Tanar of Pellucidar), David Innes returns to Pellucidar to seek his lost love, the beautiful Princess Dian, and to fulfill his vow to lead humanity out of the darkness of slavery and subordination. During an epic journey across the strange lands of Pellucidar, Innes has many heart-pounding encounters with strange peoples and savage beasts, often barely escaping with his life. This book is a prime example of why Burroughs' writings have enjoyed enormous popularity for over fifty years, and are still favorites with young and old alike. Pellucidar is sure to appeal to any reader with a taste for gripping adventure in exotic locales.

    I Also Recommend:

    An extremely good sequel

    I read this book because I thoroughly enjoyed At The Earth's Core. This is the sequel to that book, and is every bit as good. I am a fan of Edgar Rice Burroughs, but some of his books seem to be dated. Not the Pellucidar books. Pellucidar and At The Earth's Core are thrilling escapism at it's best. There is hardly a dull moment as the characters catapult from one adventure to another. This may be described as science fantasy because there is very little relation to science facts as we know them today, but who cares when a story carries you along so well. The interior of the planet wasn't nearly as well understood when these stories were written as it is today, and even with that disclaimer the author could be said to have taken wild liberties with reason. Scientific accuracy is not the point. The point is that Burroughs has constructed a universe of romance and daring set in an exotic locale. It's just good fun! Most people know Burroughs for his Tarzan series, but I think the Pellucidar books hold their own as classic adventure novels and this one, Pellucidar, is certainly a fine example. I believe there are actually seven books in the series altogether. However, they each stand alone well. I do recommend reading At The Erath's Core first, though, because it lays out the basic storyline and concepts that all the other books basically follow. All in all, Pellucidar is a great read.

    Dust Man

    "A gift to the king." He lays down three Wishes on the doorstep to the throne-room, each usuable only once. Turning, he tugs on the straps of his backpack and quietly walks out.

    A great book, except for...

    A wonderful novel all in it's one, however I'm only giving it four stars because of the constant typographical mistakes that populate the book more than the saurians and mysteries do! Now, it's not too bad as to make it unreadable but it definitely tears you out of the amazing story (At least it did for me) so often that I got tired of it near the end. Nonetheless, a true classic for generations to come.
