I'm not going to review John Carter of Mars, Burroughs is a great adventure writer, and I don't need to tell you the story. But I wanted people to know that this edition was not just OCRed from some old copy. I found no errors, or funny page breaks that can make some of these old books almost impossible to read. Nice job. I wish more of these old books had reviews that included information on the quality of the transfer to Nook.

This series of books is fantastic. I have read them multiple times since my first introduction to them in high school, many years ago. Classic action, adventure, romance and down right great story telling. Made me wish I could go to Barsoom and give it a try!!!!

A fun read that returns you to an author who wrote at a time when words that are not used much anymore were common. The story is quick paced and very descriptive, yet leaving much to the readers imagination. I finished the first book and immediately started the next one. Anyone who enjoys si/fi will enjoy the read.

I read the John Carter of Mars books decades ago, but have long since lost the actual books. This is a great collection of them all and rekindled my interest in the series. Much better than the recent movie. Past John Carter fans will love it and those new to the series will have a new favorite.

Saw the movie first. Then had to buy the book. So much more depth and detail here. Fun, heroic, always hopeful, never dull.

these books were interesting for the fact that they were written so long ago. Although they started out relatively enjoyable, the things start getting a bit repetative in the later books here
