John Carter’s Chronicles of Mars
Very enjoyable stories. The first three are about John Carter directly. They tell of his travel to, discovery of, and adventures on Mars. Well rounded novels and I really got into them. The fourth and fifth books (“Thuvia, Maid of Mars” and “The Chessman of Mars”) are about ***SPOILER*** his children. And I have to agree with another reviewer that said the last two books just stopped dead. I found the fourth didn’t simply stop before the end, but seemed to have been amputated – as if there were 3 or 4 more pages that had been lost. By the fifth book I may have been growing a little tired of women who show bravery but can never get themselves out of a complicated situations without the help of a man – which is why I’ve rated this as 3 stars instead of 4. If I’d just read the first 3 books it probably would have got 5.
