I liked this book, but not as much as the previous 4. I felt like the plot really dragged in this one, and the story seemed very disjointed; even taking into account that the chapters were written as monthly magazine issues. The other Barsoom books were written the same way, but they seemed to cohere, for the most part, just fine.

My favorite parts were the introduction of the Kaldanes and the, of course, the live action 'chess' game. That was really cool!
