horrible read don't even compare to the other novels by Burroughs

PLEASANT SURPRISE

(4.5 stars)

ERB gives us a story much different from his usual writings. It definitely gives fodder for consideration of thr then-current fears of a great world war. It also furnishes, albeit under the surface, his conviction that the demise of the European under the onslaught of the African signalled an abrupt end to civilization and its accompanying technological advancements. The book certainly would not have suffered from additional explorations of the Eastern civilization. Its quick ending is OK, but it robs us of potential inventiveness by the author. The reader did a good job.

Very interesting story

A bit different than other ERB, but a good 'read'. I know the Great War was a major event for our world, but never realized just how scary and cataclysmic it was perceived by people of that time. I think ERB does a good job of conveying the thoughts and feelings of his contemporary Americans via an Adventure Story. The reader has a pleasant voice and was not an issue for me, although I found her Aussie pronunciations to be comical.

story was normal ERB but......

(1 stars)

the reader did a good job, but I can't help but feel annoyed any time the opposite sex reads the part. write it sure. Don't have a female read a male character or vise versa. Just takes away from the emersion is all and becomes distracting.

(3.5 stars)

An enjoyable story. I enjoyed it so much that I will go look for the sequel. The reader has a sexy accent.
