#1 IN THE BESTSELLING SF SERIES OF ALL TIME! Begin Edgar Rice Burroughs' classic trilogy of Martian adventure with "A Princess of Mars." When John Carter is unexpectedly transported to the red planet, Mars, he finds himself prisoner of the cruel Green Men of Thark. Carter soon earns their respect for his bravery and skill with the sword, and wins a friend in Tars Tarkas of the Tharks. As he struggles to gain his freedom he meets and falls in love with Dejah Thoris, the brave captive and princess who is uncowed by the brutal Tharks. Carter and the fiery Martian princess get off on the wrong foot, since Carter knows nothing about the culture of the red humanoid race, and are soon at odds with each other. Carter wants nothing more than to win her love. But before he does, he will have to battle his way across the red planet against fearsome beasts and even more fearsome men, and save all the peoples of Mars from certain death when their atmosphere producing plant fails. "A work of magic and wonder," writes Sam Moskowitz in Explorers of the Infinite.

I've not had much luck with what you'd call "classic" authors. I've always put down anything written earlier than the 70's. Not the case with A Princess of Mars. I found the concept very intriguing. Burrows creates a world unlike anything I've read before. The plot had me mesmerized the entire time, so I had trouble putting it down. It was one event after another so it didn't lag in places. I always find with other "classic" authors that they like to go into a lot of details about what's going on around the character. Burroughs wrote in a way that I could picture what going on in the scene, without falling asleep reading it. I highly recommend this to anyone thinking of picking it up. I'm looking forward to reading the next in the series.
