    I can't put my finger on the reason for it but this isn't my favorite Barsoom book Having said which it's still a very st

    Burroughs is at his best when he combines the impetus of pulp adventures with the unselfconsciously far flung When he gets too tied down to an idea or progression it tends to hinder his imagination somewhatThe alien setting of the Mars books then proves a great boon to Burroughs since it is unfettered by much need for suspension of disbelief

    Eventually every good series needs to be put to bed Drawn to a close Wound up Killed In spite of that Burroughs is soldiering on with his stories from Barsoom The first three books focussed on John Carter and his beloved Dejah Thoris as she repeatedly got into scrapes and he repeatedly had to rescue her The fourt

    I agree with many people that this book is formulaic as are most of Burroughs books The problem is most people look at this book as well as the rest of the John Carter series and compare it to modern fantasy which is a mistake People please remember that most of Burroughs works are from the early twentieth century this book was published in 1920 which was 93 years ago It was a different time Also these stories started

    “Thuvia Maid of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs is the fourth book in the Barsoom series and it is uite a bit different than the previous books The first three books focused on John Carter and his love of Dejah Thoris but they are barely mentioned in this book Instead the focus switches to focus on John Carter’s son Cathoris prince of

    Burroughs must have written this one to make a few bucks or because his contract reuired it Little imagination improbable plot and than usual coincidences both good and bad to make it work But at least it was short Normally I want a book to be as long as possible; not this timeLike father like son Carthoris is as clueles

Polished ersite beneath the gorgeous blooms of a giant pimalia a woman sat Her shapely sandalled foot tapped impatiently upon the jewel strewn walk that wound beneath the stately sorapus trees across the scarlet sward of the royal gardens of Thuvan Dihn Jeddak of Ptarth as a dark haired red skinned warrior bent low toward her whispering heated words close to her ear Ah Thuvia of Ptarth he cried you are cold even before the fiery blasts of my consum Burroughs is at his best when he combines the impetus of pulp adventures with the unselfconsciously far flung When he gets too tied down to an idea or progression it tends to hinder his imagination somewhatThe alien setting of the Mars books then proves a great boon to Burroughs since it is unfettered by much need for suspension of disbelief The series has its highs but it also has lows like this bookIn it he explores many of the same things he has in the previous books casting John Carter s son in his father s image and giving him the same class of adventure He fights an endless succession of monsters and soldiers rescuing a standoffish princess navigating war and politics facing a sex starved sadist befriending a noble local warrior and uncovering an ancient mysterious cultureUnfortunately the story doesn t have uite the same punch the second time through even if there is some enjoyable variance in the details Carter had character than his son and Burroughs once again gets in the same trouble he did in Tarzan trying to explain the main character s unusual powersJohn Carter was a mighty warrior on Mars because its lower gravity gave him the ability to leap further hit harder and carry Why his son has the same powers Burroughs seems less sure suggesting that Earthlings are merely mightier despite the fact that all the creatures on Mars are huge and massively muscledJust as in Tarzan his notion that blood will out is poorly contrived even by the scientific notions of the time This book is a romp but lacks the verve of the first book and the bizarre pseudospiritual metaphysics of the second

Thuvia Maid of Mars

Ing love No harder than your heart nor colder is the hard cold ersite of this thrice happy bench which supports your divine and fadeless form Tell me O Thuvia of Ptarth that I may still hope that though you do not love me now yet some day some day my princess I The girl sprang to her feet with an exclamation of surprise and displeasure Her ueenly head was poised haughtily upon her smooth red shoulders Her dark eyes looked angrily into those of the m Thuvia Maid of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs is the fourth book in the Barsoom series and it is uite a bit different than the previous books The first three books focused on John Carter and his love of Dejah Thoris but they are barely mentioned in this book Instead the focus switches to focus on John Carter s son Cathoris prince of Helium and the title character Thuvia princess of Ptarth both of which were introduced in the second book of the series The Gods of Mars but were fairly minor characters in both that and the third book of the series This book was originally published in three parts in All Story Weekly on April 8 15 and 22 of 1916 It was later published in book form in October of 1920Most of the book deals with things with which the readers of the series are already familiar such as the different kingdoms of Red Martians and the warlike Green Martians but there is one very interesting new development and that is in the ancient city of Lothar and in particular the phantom bowmen who defend that city The entire Lothar seuence is certainly the highlight of the book with the unusual Jav who is the first Lotharian they meet and Tario Jeddak of Lothar Also the character Kar Komak who is one of the phantom bowmen is a good addition to the cast of charactersThe story is rather simple Cathoris is in love with Thuvia as is Astok Prince of Dusar but Thuvia herself is already promised to Kulan Tith the Jeddak of Kaol Who Thuvia favors is kept somewhat secret though the reader can pretty much guess Astok is determined to have her and so he kidnaps her and frames Cathoris in the process hoping to start a war and prevent the truth from being learned Cathoris falls into their trap and he and Thuvia disappear from the known world Cathoris does his best to protect Thuvia as she gets passed from captor to captor while the circumstances of what is going on in their kingdoms is unknown to them This book falls short of the first books of the series for a number of reasons Many of the devices used here were used before One would think that so many plots and deceptions had taken place in the past that it would not automatically work so easily in making people believe that Cathoris was a kidnapper The fact is though that these hokey devices worked in the earlier books because Burroughs did a much better job of keeping the action going and telling a complete story This book is much shorter than any of the prior three and the ending feels like it is cut at least a chapter short as only some of the issues raised during the story end up being resolved One never really gets to know Kulan Tith and so his actions in the end feel empty of significance a mistake which Burroughs did not make in the earlier booksFor those who were content with the first three books there isn t enough here to justify coming back to it but for those who want it does add something to the series I am only going to rate this one two stars because I feel it is significantly weaker than its predecessors but for those who are big fans of the series you probably will still get something out of it
