45 years ago I read all ERB mars series books and the Pellucidar series. I bought Tanar of Pellucidar to read again and add to our family library.

ERB was a master writer who wrote 70 novels and 100 adventure stories.

Tanar of Pellucidar is an easy read. Lots of action,great descriptions of the different races on inner Earth prehistoric Pellucidar. Lots of prehistoric monsters and the descendants of pirates. Many races of cavemen. Lots of beautiful women.

We see Jason Gridley a radio bug with the author Edgar rice Burroughs listening to a great adventure on the radio via "The Gridley wave" Abner Perry a scientist/inventor on inner earth Pellucidar is sending. Emperor 1 David I gets captured by the pirates. Also the main character in this book a strong Pellucidar man Tanar finds a beautiful woman Stellara ( believed to be the daughter of Cid the pirate king). NOT! They escape but another beautiful caveman woman Gura is helped to escape from her caveman torturous and evil clan. She falls in love with Tanar too. Eventually she realises Taner's love is for the mate of Tanar....Stellera.

A love triangle with lots of escape action. We see Tanar battling and killing a Saber Tooth tiger and a gigantic wolf. Lots more action.

The ending sets up another book. I won't ruin the ending for you. This book is good for young adults in jr. high school to develop their love of reading like I did 45 years ago. All ages jr. high school and up will enjoy it. Its not hard reading and I read the 245 page book in 2 days. There area few B/W illustrations. Its a page burner the reader wants to read on. Rated 4 1/4 stars and proudly added to our family library.

I must admit to have cut my reading teeth on Edgar Rice Burroughs and his ilk so am inclined to be a big fan. Burroughs contines his wonderful fantasy stories with the Pellucidar series and this work is one of the best. As one reviewer has already pointed out, Burroughs' observation on the human conditon can be quite acute and down right funny. As a old man, I recently reread this one (along with several others by this author) and found they have lost none of thier charm. The are "page turners" in every way and simply fun to read. Granted, some of the author's writing can indeed be a bit predictable, but somehow that is comforting for me. Recommend this one highly.

The third book in the Pellucidar series, 'Tanar of Pellucidar' concerns the exploits of of Tanar, and his adventures within the world lying under the "outer crust", Pellucidar.

Burroughs doesn't deviate too far from his formula, nor would you want him to.

Tanar is the honorable, fallible, romantically-driven hero, Stellara his love, and a whole host of bad guys interfere with them getting together. This time, they're from a place called Korsar, and look remarkably like pirates.

Yup. Yo ho, yo ho pirates.

Like the other books, there are set pieces aplenty, written in ERB's thrilling simple style. Jungles chases and oceanic clashes...dungeons, dinosaurs...oh it's all here as usual.

This time, however, there is a bit more elegance and sophistication slipping in to his prose. First, Mr. Burroughs appears in the prologue/epilogue. The jarring anachronistic presence of the pirates is given a possible explanation, in a tantalizing fashion. He gives us enough information to put two and two together, but you still want to read more, and I think he's setting us up nicely for the subsequent novels.

Which I now absolutely MUST read.

One last humorous note: Some of the exotic locales, like Anoroc and Amiocap, I've just noticed to be cities in California spelled backwards...

Although Edgar Rice Burrough's style can get predictable at times, he can come up with some literary gems such as the first few Tarzan novels and (if he had just foregone the "sequals") "the Land that Time Forgot". "Tanar of Pellucidar", along with "Escape on Venus" stand out for their simple, straightforward observations (often humorous) of human nature as expressed through the practices of various societies. Even if you aren't a Burroughs fan, these two titles I recommend for any lover of good fiction.
