Started this last night and finished this last night. What an incredible book. This is the first book I've ever read by Burroughs and it sure as heck makes me want to read more. His writing style is very reminiscent of Verne, though without all the technical and mathematic inserts that Vern usually utilizes (though I am a big fan of that, don't get me wrong, that's one of the reasons I love his books).

Burroughs's has just pulled off the amazing with this, creating a larger world inside our own world (as impossible as that sounds) and it works! A world where the horizon curves up and it's always noon, yet there is no time - wow! That's crazy awesome!

Upon finishing, I immediately moved on to the second book, Pellucidar and have realised I going to have to track down the rest of the series now.
