Reviews

very emotionally stirring

(5 stars)

as most people say this is not the usual Edgar Rice Burroughs book. I really like this one though. the author did a really good job of painting the world the way the two main characters saw it. I was completely entranced by the journey that these two individuals had. I only wish the book could have gone on longer so that I could see more of the life that they lived after

not E R B’s usual story

(5 stars)

Thank you for doing such a great work with the reading of this book, I enjoyed listening. The story is definitely different from ERB’s other tales and, it, in my opinion, should be better know.

good stuff!

(5 stars)

Excellent, though rapid, reading. Many thanks to the reader. Ends rather abruptly but I thoroughly enjoyed it and stayed up late to finish. XD

Good Story

(4 stars)

Different type of story fron ERB...short and entertaining. Gritty and dramatic, and tue reader's voice and pace are fitting for this book.

(5 stars)

Essentially a gender swapped version of THE EFFICIENCY EXPERT. Since I consider that Burroughs best work, this is a must listen.
