I first read this book years ago and really liked it, so when the movie John Carter was advertised and I realized it was the same story, I read it again. Wow! Even though it was written almost 100 years ago and the science is not really plausible, it is such an exciting tale with a hero you can cheer for and fascinating characters, settings, and plot ideas that you get "sucked in" and don't worry about whether or not it could really happen! I highly recommend this for fantasy & science fiction lovers, like me. :)
Interesting, memorable characters; fantastic setting and plot; fast-paced and exciting.
