The Gods of Mars - (version 2)


Read by Thomas A. Copeland

(4.8 stars; 224 reviews)

In this second volume of the Barsoom series, John Carter returns to Mars to learn that his heroic effort to salvage the atmosphere plant saved the planet's inhabitants, but he finds himself in the land of the dead. Luck restores his friends and even his son to him, and with them he escapes his imprisonment after unmasking (but not deposing) the cruel "goddess" Issus. He finds the Martians unready, however, to fling off their ancient religion and face the frightful truth of what "eternal peace" awaits those who make the voluntary pilgrimage to the Valley Dor. Worse, his wife's father and grandfather have failed to return from searching for him, and his wife in despair has taken the fatal pilgrimage down the River Iss. In their absence his worst enemy has seized power, and since John Carter has committed the unforgivable crime of returning from the land of the dead, all agree—for different reasons and with different intentions—that he must return to it.

Another Outstanding Reading!

(5 stars)

As always, another outstanding performance by Mr.Copeland! I always enjoy books this gentleman reads; it's almost like listening to a one-man play; Mr. Copeland provides not just the words, but the appropriate emotional content as well. Thanks again for your dedication and hard work; I have trouble reading for myself due to serious eye problems; thanks to you, I can still enjoy many of my favorite classics!

Awesome!

(5 stars)

I love this series! Too many great things about this story and the characters to mention. Copeland does a great job reading - the voice of Issus is especially creative and repulsive at the same time.... but that's only fitting for such a thing as she. On to the next book! Long live John Carter and Dejah Thoris!

great follow up and reading

(5 stars)

Copeland ' s readings are a bit more measured than others here, but well worth the extra time for the even tone, expression, and gravity he brings to the table. very happy to see his versions of 3, 4, and 5.

Well Played

I've been an avid reader of science fiction all my life. Its. nice go over the origins on my favored genre. ERB has always been a pioneer in action adventure and science fiction.

(5 stars)

This is a wonderful story, well written by a true master of the genre. The reader is excellent, his pace and his diction enhance the experience of being submersed in the fantastic tale.
