After a good start, this series of books got increasingly more frustrating to read. This final book follows much of the pattern set in the previous 2 books. Protagonist A would meet friendly native B, they would then be captured by hostile tribe X and have to escape. After a short period of freedom they would be captured by tribe Z. That's the basic outline over and over.

This one did change things a little in that there were multiple POV's, but that caused issues when the POV would change every

I have no particular recollection of the Pellucidar stories in this, the last of the series. I do, however, remember the cover and have appreciated aggressively independent women ever since.

The final installment of the Pellucidar series is an interesting story with a lot of potential that unfortunately seemed to follow the same template as the other books.

Burroughs introduced an New Englander who had become a cannibal, a king from a bronze-age city, and several other interesting characters, but never really developed them. The characters he does develop are nearly indistinguishable from the characters in the other books in the series. There are the strong, independent women, the st

My favorite Pellucidar book and one of my Burroughs favorites, a brilliant satire of religion and a comedic romp.

The Pelliucidar series is my favorite series written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. I used to walk to Grand Central and gather bottles along the side of the road. I would be able to collect enough bottles and turn them in for the deposit for the next book in this (and all of his series)series of books!

This the last novel in the Pelucidar series is actually rather good, the style is often poor at times almost childlike, the story totally unbelievable, but it is great fun, action-packed with at times (especially in the second part) lots of humour and rather dark humour at that.

Still the same formula as the other books, but this time with added humor and a bit of social commentary (just a tad). I enjoyed reading about David finding Dian one last time. Hopefully they lived happily ever after.
