This novel was first published
episodically in 1912, a year before Burroughs released "Tarzan of
the Apes", which would catapult him to international fame. This
novel helped to define an emerging genre: science fiction. John
Carter, Confederate Civil War veteran, is mysteriously transported
to Mars, where he finds that the new environment gives him
seemingly supernatural powers. We are introduced to several
different alien cultures, and we follow Carter as he seeks to
rescue the elusive Martian Princess, with whom he has fallen in
love. It's a fantastic science fiction novel, and is sure to be a
great gateway into the Classics for younger readers.

I never heard of this book, until B.J. made it into an audiobook. It was completely captivating, and just zipped along. I would completely recommend this.
