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.

Fast read due to its nonstop action. Enjoyed this book much, but the earlier novel even more. Looking forward to the next in this series!

Another example of Edgar Rice Buorroughs' fantasy worlds with much adventue and romance.

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.
