Thuvia Maid of Mars

(5 stars)

The 4th in the Barsoom series. Classic ERB delivered by one of the best narrators Mark Nelson. This story follows John Carter's son.

great reading of the 4th book of Mars series

(5 stars)

Another great read by Mark Nelson. Even though John Carter doesn't play a major role the story offers everything you could want from a John Carter story. Highly recommended.

some interesting new concepts

(5 stars)

I like the idea of the realists. It kept this from being as boilerplate as I thought it was going to be. Great reading as always.

(3 stars)

I've read the entire series up to this point and this book is probably the weakest so far. still good though

great narration, fun tale

(5 stars)

probably the best narration possible for a story like this one. Lots of fun to listen to!

Good story.

(4 stars)

A decent "side story/sequel" to the John Carter saga. Mark Nelson does an excellent job as usual.


(5 stars)

Mark Nelson is perfect for Barsoom. Thuvia is a another hit. Thank you again. Starting Chessmen in 3,2,....

ok story

(3 stars)

Nelson does a good job but the book just isn’t as good as the first three
