Well I found this one here, on YouTube:

Gods of Mars, the sequel is here:

Warlord of Mars here:

If anything, it helps me to see how the Martian names are pronounced. :)

PS. For those who want to bypass the narrator, here's the text online:

AudioVox has it, but there are at least 3 readers

As a huge fan of audio books I have found that the reader can make or break any book. There are readers that I know I will enjoy and others I avoid. What will drive you crazy is where a book series will have different readers. I always find that jarring.

I wouldn't mind different readers if they would all learn how to pronounce the words. I tried listening to libraVox The Count of Monte Christo, seven or eight different readers, some of which couldn't speak English very well.

I've never read the Mars series. I read the Venus series though and, while I enjoyed it, it got kind of repetitious after a while in my opinion.

While my Mom made me read Cervantes in old Castilian Spanish, even Victor Hugo's and Jules Verne's works in Spanish, I snuck in between and read all the Tarzan (all 24 of them) and Pellucidar novels (7 of them), and even the Land That Time Forgot books (the Caspak trilogy).

I also read I Am Barbarian and The Cavegirl:

But I always wanted to read the rest of ERB's other worlds, particularly Mars and Venus.


So now might be my chance to catch up on some more ERB.

PS. Wow, talk about a walk on memory lane. Mom made me read all of HG Wells too, starting with Outline of History of course. I had to read that first before she would let me read his SF. I did enjoy Gibbon's Decline and Fall Of the Roman Empire, probably because I had already read a lot of history and historical fiction by then and, in my mind, I would imagine all sorts of what-ifs.
