One of the most profound early influences on the science fiction and fantasy genre, Edgar Rice Burroughs is now most famous for his Tarzan series, although he wrote many tales that have captured the imaginations of generations of readers, including the Martian adventures of the Barsoom sequence, of which this book is the fourth, the Pellucidar sequence, and the stories of Carson on Venus.

More About Edgar Rice Burroughs
Junot Diaz s fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, The Paris Review, and The Best American Short Stories. His highly-anticipated first novel, The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, was greeted with rapturous reviews, including Michiko Kakutani in The New York Times calling it a book that decisively establishes him as one of contemporary fiction's most distinctive and irresistible new voices. His debut story collection, Drown, published eleven years prior to Oscar Wao, was also met with unprecedented acclaim; it became a national bestseller, won numerous awards, and has since grown into a landmark of contemporary literature. Born in the Dominican Republic and raised in New Jersey, Diaz lives in New York City and is a professor of creative writing at MIT."

Reviews - What do customers think about Thuvia, Maid of Mars (The Barsoom Series, Book 4)?
Super Reader Aug 7, 2008
Automatic pilots are a good invention, however, even if you are the son of the Warlord Of Mars, you should probably eyeball where you are going occasionally rather than snooze all the way.
As such, some underhanded sabotage leaves said young man on a quest to rescue a princess, and stop a war.
There's lost cities, invisible bowmen, large beasties, mentally created friends, swordfights to have, rivals to rescue, and big green guys to dispose of.
All the good stuff, in other words.

Carthoris and Thuvia Sep 21, 2005
This is the fourth book in Edgar Rice Burroughs "Mars" series. John Carter only has a cameo in this book. The real star of the book is Carter's son, Carthoris, along with his lady love, Thuvia. It's a typical example of early 20th Century science fiction, although better written than the average sci-fi story. Thuvia gets kidnapped, Carthoris goes off to rescue her. Along the way, they discover another lost city of Mars (things like that happen a lot in these books). If you are interested in early science fiction, this is an entertaining example of the genre.
Less substance than a Cugel novel. Jul 29, 2005
Come on people! Even Jack Vance's zany Dying Earth novels (Cugel in particular) have more substance than this lackadaisical tour-de-force. Skip out on Burroughs, if you want quality sci-fi read the Demon Princes by Jack Vance...
Answer to Terrible edition Jan 19, 2005

Quiet Vision not longer uses outside printers and binders.
STILL FUN AFTER ALL THESE YEARS Oct 2, 2004
I first read this book and this series some 52 years ago...I recently dug them out and had another go. They are as fun now as they were then. Burroughs' style is absolutely great and needs to be savored. The books are action packed and certainly reflet a time in our society long past. I feel to understand current SiFi and S&S, you really need to start during this time period. We certainly have come along way, in may ways, but it is very evident that this writer and his contemporaries certainly had a profound influence on what we are getting today. This are books for little boys and girls and thank goodness I have enough of that little boy in me to still enjoy them.
