John Carter, an American Civil War veteran, goes prospecting in Arizona and, when set upon by Indians, is mysteriously transported to Mars, called "Barsoom" by its inhabitants. Carter finds that he has demigod-like strength on this planet, due to its lesser gravity. He is soon captured by "Tharks", the planet's warlike, four-armed, green inhabitants, and his incredible adventures begin.

Great book, good audio quality
I felt the reader did a "good" job at reading.
The book is awesome. There is so much to read into. There are political & societal undertones that display the writers viewpoints in early 1900 America.
John Carter's ability to leap buildings in a single bound leads one to question the concept behind Superman & other great storylines.
But terrible narrator. Sounds like a robot
