Reviews

Pronunciation

(4 stars)

Love the book. Love love love it. Love the whole series, actually. Of the recording, I would say thank you to JD Webber for his perseverance. I nitpicked at his pronunciation of names and certain specific words, but that's just part and parcel of having me in the audience. ;)

last chapter

(4.5 stars)

interesting conclusion to the trilogy. I only wish that Webber had narrated the final chapter or at least it should have been a male voice to represent John Carter. That said the lady narrator was very good.

Great fun. action, danger, romance and more!

(5 stars)

Everything you could wish for. The little kid in you comes alive listening. You want to get your stick sword and trash can lid and have at it with your friends.

Great read, but the story is so-so

(3 stars)

To me, this story in the series became tiresome. Frankly, the ominpotence of our hero becomes a little too extreme for me in this story, and the science fiction aspect of it all has practically vanished. JD, on the other hand, has at this point become an accomplished reader, and it's sad that he has stopped submitting stuff for LibriVox.

try version 2

(2 stars)

I disliked very much the readers voice and pace. I felt like I was listening more to a textbook read rather than a adventure story. version 2 of this book is a much better reader

incomplete recording

(0.5 stars)

The beginning of the book and each subsequent chapter (except the last) is cut off. The recordings begin at least a paragraph into each chapter, sometimes missing entire battles.

part of the series

(3 stars)

Started fresh but author punishes reader with regurgitation until it becomes unbearably heroic, however, its book 3. Read through 2nd rescue attempt then skip to ch 15.

(3.5 stars)

Story is great. Reader great then in the last few chapters a new completely different reader is presented and uit is somewhat off putting. This is reason for rating.
