    As a woman, I actually love reading Burroughs. There's usually one female character...sometimes pretty wild! In this one...hey...I actually fire a gun! More than once! How come men today don't fight over me like this? "She mine! I kill!" No ambiguity whatsoever. And the reader is...well...he's not bad. Not great. But, he takes you there....

  • JK

    The first of three novels exploring Caspak, with the standard "boy meets girl, boy loses girl ..." side-plot. Suspend the obvious failings in the scientific aspects of the novel and it is an enjoyable trip.

  • Dewey Stevens

    Had some very annoying pauses on the first CD... seemed to be from editing rather than the narration. Otherwise pretty typical ERB selection.

    This is written in the early 19th century and it shows. With our space age technology none of this makes any sense at all, but that's why it is a fantastic story. The writing style was definately old. It bothered me that the author always refered to the woman as "the girl", like she was a 12 year old, which wasn't the case. She was a grown woman. The storyline is not completely resolved at the end either, which is actually more a modern trade than one of 100 years ago. All in all a fast and quick read (or listen) and mildly entertaining.
