Reading: A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs Part Two

As I indicated earlier, I do not like John Carter. He is the squarest of all square jawed manly man heroes and I have never liked the pulpy square jawed hero type. (I generally prefer the snarky sidekicks or the grim yet reliable sidekicks. They are more interesting and I almost never want to hit them with bricks.) I also dislike him because of his being or having been a Confederate, but that’s an entirely different rant.

So! Our Hero arrives on Mars, where he discovers that he has super powers!

Actually, he just discovers that the gravity is lighter.Part of my (snarky) over view of Burroughs A Princess of Mars.
