Started Monday Jan 30, 2012. (Late in the evening). As of Wed morning, on page 50. If Princess of Mars was his first book, and this was his third, I would say his writing is constantly improving. A little less description of fighting in this one (not my cup of tea!) and a few more twists and turns. Still enjoying visiting with one of my lifetime heroes! Go John Carter! Finished Friday Feb 3, 2012. Finally a true ending! Books 1, 2 and 3, are really all one big one. I think Burroughs gets the prize for dictionary look-ups! I think I like John Carter because he acts like a comic book hero, but talks like a professor! (Check out the quote from page 131.) (and I know I spelled psycholosgist wrong, but I can't edit it!).....a few days later, just read this comment again.....and realized I spelled it wrong again!!!!....I can edit this, but it's too funny, so I'll leave it!!!! I will be reading more in the series as John Carter has still not discovered his motto ("I still live!") I wonder which book this will appear in, I remember it so well. Heading for David J. Pelzer's "A Man Named Dave" and then on to Daphne Du Maurier's "Rebecca" for now!

"Quick have I always been to decide and act.The impulse that moves me and the doing of the thing seem simultaneous; for if my mind goes through the tedious formality of reasoning, it must be a subconscious act of which I am not objectively aware. Physcologists tell me that, as the subconscious does not reason, too close a scrutiny of my mental activities might prove anything but flattering; but be that as it may, I have often won success while the thinker would have been still at the endless task of comparing various judgements.
And now celerity of action was the prime essential to the success of the thing that I had decided upon."
