(4,735 Sterne; 356 Bewertungen)

After John Carter's arrival, a boat of Green Martians on the River Iss are ambushed by the previously unknown Plant Men. The lone survivor is his friend Tars Tarkas, the Jeddak of Thark, who has taken the pilgrimage to the Valley Dor to find Carter. Having saved their own lives, Carter and Tars Tarkas discover that the Therns, a white-skinned race of self-proclaimed gods, have for eons deceived the Barsoomians elsewhere by disseminating that the pilgrimage to the Valley Dor is a journey to paradise. Most arrivals are killed by the beasts of Valley, and the survivors enslaved by Therns. (Summary by Wikipedia) (8 hr 40 min)

Gods of Mars

(5 Sterne)

The second in the Barsoom series, which continues to follow the adventures of John Carter. Classic ERB delivered by one of the best narrators, Mark Nelson. Thank you Mr. Nelson.

Wonderful sequel made all the better due to this fantastic reading

(5 Sterne)

Another fantastic reading by Mark Nelson. I'm now listening to books that weren't even on my radar because he is doing the reading. Fun pulpy adventure from simpler times. Wonderfully campy and full of over the top cliffhangers.

Greatest!

(5 Sterne)

I will LOOK for THIS READER from now on, while I seek out all the rest of ERB's Barsoom series book by book. Thrilling! I'm enjoying it as much as I loved reading these novels as a kid. Thank you also, LibriVox. I may be the first cranky grownup to admit this, but FREE audiobooks are a sanity saver.

AWESOME

(5 Sterne)

One of the most professional readers I've heard on Librivox. Very few misspeaks. Great voice. Gives each character their own accents / nuances. Super easy to get into the story with a reader like this. I look forward to other works he has lent his talent to!

Excellent story and reading!

(5 Sterne)

Mark Douglas Nelson did an excellent job reading as usual. The story is very action packed, which makes it easy to follow and quite interesting. If you've read a Princess of Mars, you may as well continue the journey of John Carter.

A great story!

(5 Sterne)

This is, I'm my opinion, some of Edgar Rice Burroughs best writing. Mark Nelson does an excellent job as usual, thank you sir!

Great sci fi adventure!
