  1. In the last book John Carter overcame all odds and was victorious The only problem was, his wife a beautiful Princess Dejah Thoris remained out of his reach This tale begins with him trying to rescue the love of his life Doing this he stumbles upon a conspiracy and his rescue attempt and its consequences took the whole book He risked his life countless number of times, he destroyed everything that stood on his way, he converted some deeply religious people to atheism only to be late in h In the last book John Carter overcame all odds and was victorious The only problem was, his wife a beautiful Princess Dejah Thoris remained out of his reach This tale begins with him trying to rescue the love of his life Doing this he stumbles upon a conspiracy and his rescue attempt and its consequences took the whole book He risked his life countless number of times, he destroyed everything that stood on his way, he converted some deeply religious people to atheism only to be late in his rescue efforts by literally seconds every time again and again I rated this book slightly lower than the previous two for the following reasons First, the hero being late by a fraction of second to reach his goal became stale after twentieth time or so Second, either the guy becamestupid in the absence of his love, or he was stupid before but it was not too obvious This time he paid for his stupidity yes, by being late several times in his rescue mission because of it To his defense ...

  3. I have enjoyed this series, and I am going to tell you what I specifically like about this series as a whole It feels like classic kinda cheesy serial sci fi I picture the main characters in outlandish costumes fighting rubbery monsters while the rocky landscape shakes when they bump it When they are flying, I can see the strings holding up the little spacecraft model while it is manipulated in a jerky fashion for long shots I picture scantily clad space Queens with too much makeup swoonin I have enjoyed this series, and I am going to tell you what I specifically like about this series as a whole It feels like classic kinda cheesy serial sci fi I picture the main characters in outlandish costumes fighting rubbery monsters while the rocky landscape shakes when they bump it When they are flying, I can see the strings holding up the little spacecraft model while it ...

  4. Cliff clinging adventure As should be, the end of the trilogy is the best of three, fulfilling the rising action The Fountainhead Prime of so much, yet ignored by so many the incomparable John Carter of Barsoom If only the people of earth were such as these.

  6. A rousing end to the first Martian trilogy featuring John Carter Burroughs does a good job of opening up new Martian territory with each tale, and this one explores the uncharted North Pole While I loved the first novel, liked the second one, this third novel is a bit of a problem in certain aspects One is the fact that Dejah Thoris, John Carter s wife, is primary in the role of the MacGuffin for books 2 3 I appreciated her strong headed sensibility in the first novel I suppose I came A rousing end to the first Martian trilogy featuring John Carter Burroughs does a good job of opening up new Martian territory with each tale, and this one explores the uncharted North Pole While I loved the first novel, liked the second one, this third novel is a bit of a problem in certain aspects One is the fact that Dejah Thoris, John Carter s wife, is primary in the role of the MacGuffin for books 2 3 I appreciated her strong headed sensibility in the first novel I suppose I came to this material expecting to find Dejah a bitof a warrior woman, the way she was portrayed in the Marvel Comics adaption from the 1970s The other problem is the way that John Carter disguises himself as a member of the Blacks or Yellow Martian races can t see that working too well The villainous Thurid deserves some credit in this novel, at lea...

  8. 2012 John Carter re read, part 3 With Warlord of Mars the original John Carter trilogy concludes In this volume, Burroughs discards the complexity, intrigue, and world building that made Gods of Mars stand out in favor of a straightforward, rip roaring action novel From the beginning, John Carter is cut off from all of his friends and allies as he and his faithful Mars dog Woola set out in pursuit of Dejah Thoris, now in the clutches of the few remaining villains left over from the previous b 2012 John Carter re read, part 3 With Warlord of Mars the original John Carter trilogy concludes In this volume, Burroughs discards the complexity, intrigue, and world building that made Gods of Mars stand out in favor of a straightforward, rip roaring action novel From the beginning, John Carter is cut off from all of his friends and allies as he and his faithful Mars dog Woola set out in pursuit of Dejah Thoris, now in the clutches of the few remaining villains left over from the previous book It s a standard damsel in distress plot a Carter chases them to new exotic location, b makes new enemies and or allies, c almost catches up to his quarry but they get away again, d repeat as necessary.Along the way you get aerial dogfights, jungle battles, a lost kingdom on Mar...

  9. Too close a scrutiny of my mental activities might prove anything but flattering, said John Carter If any trait exceeds his partial prowess it must be his impulse to combat Time and again throughout the Barsoom chronicles Carter rushes to fight for freedom, for the love of his life, for his friends, or just for the fun of a good fight.Burroughs has, perhaps, descended to the level of Saturday afternoon matinee serials, but its good, clean fun And, this time he manages to finish his story.A Too close a scrutiny...

  10. This is NOT really book 3, it s the end of book 2 a fine way to wrap it up, too There aren t any surprises, but it is a lot of fun.

  12. In some ways, this book is the mirror image of the previous book in the series, THE GODS OF MARS That had the repetitious plot of John Carter being chased by malevolent forces chapter after chapter While there were occasional rests between scenes of him fleeing, it became tedious This finally stopped well into the book when Carter came to a palace and there was intrigue This book is structured with John Carter chasing malevolent forces chapter after chapter While there are occasional rests In some ways, this book is the mirror image of the previous book in the series, THE GODS OF MARS That had the repetitious plot of John Carter being chased by malevolent forces chapter after chapter While there were occasional rests between scenes of him fleeing, it became tedious This finally stopped well into the book when Carter came to a palace and there was intrigue This book is structured with John Carter chasing malevolent forces chapter after chapter While there are occasional rests between scenes of him chasing, it becomes tedious This finally stops when he comes to a palace and there is intrigue Give me a break In addition you have to contend with Burroughs ham fisted prose Never use a word when seven will do, seems to be his motto Never put a character in a room if he can spend five pages wandering around corridors to get to that room Well, this book was originally serialized in a pulp magazine Perhaps Burroughs w...

  13. Just before turning eight, I got a little brother, Fin, the only sibling I grew up with Mom and Dad were lucky because I was generally bored and, so, actually wanted to spend time with him when he got old enough to toddle about and talk I read to him, but mostly I told him stories, crazy stories featuring lots of naughty things that little kids delight in like poop and farting and talking animals.Since I was into the John Carter books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the whole Mars Barsoom thing, sill Just before turning eight, I got a little brother, Fin, the only sibling I grew up with Mom and Dad were lucky because I was generally bored and, so, actually wanted to spend time with him when he got old enough to toddle about and talk I read to him, but mostly I told him stories, crazy stories featuring lots of naughty things that little kids delight in like poop and farting and talking animals.Since I was into the John Carter books by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the whole Mars Barsoom thing, silly as it was, constituted part of the entertainment for both of us One day on the beach I convinced him that he could indeed, that he was John Carter of Barsoom I had him crayon a bunch of paper plates, then cut holes in them, fitting one on his head, four others on his ankles and wrists Then, with a beach towel for a cape and a stick for a sword, I let him loose on the public beach just north of us Amidst the family picnics and the amorous coupl...
