The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs
My rating: ✰ ✰ ✰
e-Book, Finished reading: 5/2/2012
John Carter has returned to Mars from Earth, he knows nothing of what has happened in the past 5 years. He appears on Mars in a land from which no one returns. However since he is ‘John Carter’, he does the impossible, only to find that his wife survived, but has disappeared.
The rest of the book is spent in his efforts to find her and his enemies efforts to stop him.
It is a very simple plot line and the action comes from the fact that every time John Carter gets close to success something happens to thwart his efforts.
Another quick enjoyable read. Lots of fighting again.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
