I think that it is a little unfair to call this a parody of the classic ERB stories as this novel is it's own beast. In my opinion Jane Carver is a dramatic improvement over the original inspiration which suffered from stilted language and dated attitudes. This book brings John Carter into the 21 st century.
I loved the tiger centaurs, the gladiator fights, the sky pirates, and the heroine's gung-ho attitude. The alien princess is a scream. The sword fight on the top of an airship is fantastic. The author has a real feel for pulp style action with many cunning rescues and dramatic escapes.
I only hope that this is the first in a new series as I would love to read more adventures of Jane Carver.
If you're looking for a refreshing new take on a classic sci-fi fantasy concept, "Jane Carver of Waar" may be just what you're looking for. Jane is a big, bold, bodacious heroine of the sort that we have gone too long without, and I am glad she has finally arrived!
Everyone should read it. I actually delayed finishing the final chapters because I didn't want to leave Jane and Waar behind!
The only experience I have with John Carter is through the movie and whatever discussions I hear, so you could say I barely know anything about him. Yet I absolutely enjoyed Jane Carver! From the moment I started reading it, I couldn't put it down and stop. I loved Jane because of her no nonsense outlook on life and great one liners. Actually, she was just really really entertaining throughout the whole book, not slowing down even a moment. Even when her future was bleak, she was still very entertaining.
I didn't mind her language either. To me it just fit right in with the rest of her personality, so it didn't seem out of place. I do have a 'but' though. In the middle of the book it just got a tad too vulgar for my tastes. It wasn't so much the language, which is part of it, but more like that part could have been probably toned down a little? Because at that moment, the book went from a fun light fantasy to something that was just too much fixated on sex. Yes, sexual tension definitely added to the story, but only to some degree.
Like I said before, I have a pretty limited experience with the original John Carter novels, but I am familiar with ERB's other works.Read more ›
