This was the first Gor book I read, because I heard it had belly dancing in it. As a dancer myself, I enjoy looking for old belly dance kitsch. After forcing myself to finish it, I can honestly say it is the most poorly written book I have ever read. John Norman has the most annoying writing style I have ever suffered through. He somehow manages to fill an entire book with words that don't seem to say anything. He likes to drag out his sentences by adding extra words that don't need to be there ...more
My sister got me this book as a joke. It's librarian-falls-through-a wormhole-and-meets Conan the barbarian who then makes her a love slave. Ultra testosterone story.
Another of Norman's little breaks from the main narrative and once again, we are in familiar territory - 'How I learned to stop worrying and love slavery' by an Earth girl. This one, Doreen, a librarian who secretly loves to belly dance (!) treads familiar ground. it's not good, it's not bad, it's just...more of the same, really.

Next up, we return to Tarl Cabot's storyline as he meddles in the Ar Land War.

I read this whole series in a marathon session, while stationed in England. The depth and volume of the stories is humbling for any writer and I consider this series very influential in my own approach to writing and world building in general; generic post for all the books in this series as I am finally getting around to recording my reading list in Goodreads.
I read it because I wanted to know how bad it is. I wish I hadn't. It's worse.
My favorite of the Gor books.
