Title/Author: “A Princess of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs

Genre: Science Fiction

Rating: 4 out of 5

WV Reader Review: I picked up this book after seeing the 2012 movie John Carter. I thought the movie had an interesting premise, especially since the novel is an early instance of science fiction – published in 1917. The novel was a fun adventure, with heroic and gentlemanly John Carter as the main character, and the independent, strong, exotic Dejah Thoris – a princess of Mars.

I would recommend this to anybody looking to be swept 35 million miles away on an adventure.
