Pronunciation

(4 Sterne)

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 Sterne)

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!

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.

Pretty good book in barsoom series

(4 Sterne)

The adventures of John Carter continue - you will want to listen to previous books so you get the story line. I have to concur with earlier reviewer that John Carter seems a bit too invulnerable. But eh, I am listening for the story line because I started with Thuvia, Maid of Mars and wanted to back up and get the whole story. What interests me is the underlying message of hope in this series; that different people of different skin colors can come together in unity and as one people. The earlier recordings are a bit high in pitch, I dropped the treble and upped the base to filter that out.

Masterfully written and action-packed story

(4 Sterne)

Burroughs wrote beautifully and packed a lot of action into his works. I am now a fan of his Barsoom series. Thanks to J.D. Weber for reading. In the future, he is recommended to please be sure how to pronounce words before committing them to audio: "lithe," "chasm," "malevolence," "succor," "escape," "stygian," "stead," and more. Several words were mispronounced in each chapter. More deliberate enunciation would be preferred with words having multiple "r"'s: "superrrr," "inferrrr," "interrrr," "exterrrr," "warrrr," "errrr," "terrrr," "horrrr," etc. Those who are bugged up by this may wish to download another reader.

Great!

(5 Sterne)

This one was very greatly and professionally read from the start to the end, I'm quite disappointed to hear that JD has disappeared and is not recording more of this series :D Anyway the sudden change of voice in the last chapter and the recognition of the by now familiar voice of Kara, is a delightful and surprising bonus addition to the entertainment of the reader who attains the end of the book. Thanks for the beautiful reading!

ah, Deja Thoris

(4 Sterne)

There is a lot of battle in this his book, more than any of the others in the series, and of course the righteous John Carter wins. Of course I know there are more books in the series so I know the ultimate outcome, but the uncanny timing is a little boring. Fine writing, great descriptions and excitement in all he writes. I wish he were alive to teach and write more!

Great read, but the story is so-so

(3 Sterne)

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.
