As with a lot of Mars books, we have interesting subplots - a lost city of Lothar that has men who can imagine so strongly that others can see their thoughts come to life. They usually disappear except for one guy.... but I digress.
Burroughs really gets more into the animal life on Mars - the lion-like banth the most prominent.
Overall, and enjoyable story for John Carter fans, but without John Carter.
Kindle edition was clear, no massive misspellings or errors as I've seen in other editions.
"Thuvia, Maid of Mars" was originally serialized in "All-Story Weekly" in April 1916, which explains the novel's subtext about world war, since one was going on in Europe at that point in time. The original title was "Cathoris," but apparently when it was published as a novel in 1920 somebody wised up and changed it. Thuvia is not as great a name as Deja Thoris, but it is not bad. In many ways this is like the previous novel, "The Warlord of Mars," where the hero chases his beloved across the landscape of Barsoom and has to deal with green men and white apes. Fortunately, unlike ERB's Tarzan series, "Thuvia, Maid of Mars" is really the only time that repeats himself like this in the Martian series, which stands out as his best as he proves in the next and most inventive volume in the series, "Chessmen of Mars."
