The Littles And The Lost Children - Roberta Carter Clark,Jacqueline Rogers,John Lawrence Peterson I picked this up at the Little Free Lending Library. It is the first Littles book that I have read. I really liked the premise of the series. It is fantastical and fascinating. This was a well-written book. Simple, yet interesting. While the characters were not very well developed, the plot of the story was very cool. I finished it in a day, because I really wanted to find out what happened next. A very creative work.

A Princess of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs,John Seelye

John Carter, a veteran of the American Civil War is prospecting for gold when he and his partner encounter Apaches. He escapes them by entering a sacred cave but immediately succumbs to a strange drowsiness. When he wakes up, he’s on Mars, a dying world known to the locals as Barsoom. There, he is a kind of a Superman in reverse, with super strength and super agility, able to leap a thoat (10 feet high green horse) in a single bound, etc. He encounters a tribe of fearsome six armed green humanoids led by Tars Tarkas. They capture a Red Martian princess, Dejah Thoris, whom John Carter spends much of the novel trying to protect.

 

Mars is a dying world where, surprisingly, the megafauna are the last to go. The Green Martians feel alien, the Red Martians less so. It’s a world where everyone is constantly at war but the survival of all life on the planet hinges on two guys running a single atmosphere plant. It’s morally uncomplicated world or rather John Carter sees it as such. All in all, it’s best enjoyed by following his example and adopting the attitude of when on Mars. The most important lesson from it is don’t mess with his princess!

John Carter of Mars (Barsoom, #1-3) - Mike Ashley,Edgar Rice Burroughs,Tom Yeates

I read this book a chapter at time over a few months, which I think is a good way to consume this book as the writing is basically of the form "...and then this happened...and then this other thing happened..", which for me can become tiresome. It is written from the point of view of the main character and well, there is no other way to say it, he is kinda full of himself and brags a lot. Anyway I did enjoy these three books, but my favorite was the Gods of Mars, I just really liked the mythology presented in the story.
