A great classic. Absolutely criminal to have this narrator. Mispronunciations, dull reading, obviously not read ahead. They should be ashamed!
Good book. The narrative is very dull! Lots of pronunciation issues!
awesome book! but the narrator sucks
Couldn’t get through the first chapter. The narrator reads it instead of narrates. Sounds like a college freshman trying to do an oral report written by his roommate.
I completely enjoy the John Carter saga.
I will definitely be listening through this series of books. It's another book I've neglected in the past.
Sounded like a volunteer read the book. That considered, he did an OK job.
Keeping in mind this was written before Star Wars, Star Trek, and inspired any number of writers, it was pretty good.
The book is very good. I don't think it quite stands up to the first but that's fairly normal for a book series. I struggled understanding the narrator sometimes because he seemed to not know how to pronounce quite a few of the words and sometimes paused in places there shouldn't be a pause. I have audio processing issues and these things make understanding far more difficult for me. It may not be an issue for others.
I enjoyed this and was very entertained
The story is very well written. I particularly liked the changes in location, and the unique turns of phrase.. The narration was awful. There is NO "X" in the word "escape"! That was the chronic problem that had me gritting my teeth. It wasn't helped by the hundred odd other mispronunciations. Timing also should be established by the punctuation, which the narrator quite continually disregarded. Science fiction works through our wilful suspension of disbelief. A good narrator puts you right into the story, while poor narration can't quite get you to suspend your disbelief. A shame, really.
Good ERB book
great job with a challenging read but it's "escape" not "excape"
This is an Amazing listen! I love the timing in the telling if this story. In the writing of the story it answers all questions.
