Another top-notch action/adventure book. Seem to be reading a lot of these...

Even tho this is a 100 year old book, holds up extremely well. The writing is a little florid, which might make sense since the "author" is a Civil War era soldier, but the action is non-stop, with the usual ERB convenient coincidences thrown in throughout.

One thing I've noticed with some of these roughly 100 year old adventure tales I've been reading is the limited or lack of dialogue: a lot of what would be written out as conversations, which might go on for pages, are instead wrapped up in tidy sentences or short paragraphs.

Read the first Martian Tales just after the movie, "John Carter," came out, tho I still haven't seen that. Liked the book enough to want to continue the series. This book ends on a heck of a cliff-hanger, so I'm committed to reading the next one as well!
