(5 stars)

(3 stars)

A little slow for me though reader with something now you I enjoyed the story though

Fun read!

(5 stars)

The reader did a great job with the sequel as he did with the first. A predictable yet fun story in the familiar style of ERB.

engrossing read, somewhat lacking in imagination tho..

(3 stars)

This was quite the myopic retake of a forgone prehistoric time.. if history teaches us anything, its that colonialism has been an utter failure, and tht power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. The belief or doctrine that white people are inherently superior to people from all other racial groups has also proven a fallacy. Overall, the book is infantile in evolutionary thought, mostly still governed by base instinct. Such is man's evolutionary state.


(4 stars)

A very well read story. I think a bit slower than At The Earth's Core but I like the style of the writing, rather wordy but absorbing. An incredible adventure with great chunks of industrial development in Pellucidar happening very quickly but small more personal events being described in depth. Thanks


(3.5 stars)

Sadly there is no discussion into the environmental damage caused by the development of an industrial lifestyle within a confined space

The sky is a horrible socialist.

(1.5 stars)

The series and some of his other books are pretty good except for he is a slave of his times where they thought that Socialism was something other than pure slavery.
