Lemme start off by prefacing this review with a quick mention of the book. I had no fucking plan to ever read it, but I was at a buddy’s house and we started talking about the movie and he said he had seen the trailer and slowly put two and two together and realized he had read the first three books of the series. I only read about 3/4ths of ‘A Princess of Mars’ before seeing the movie. I figured, what the fuck? I haven’t read a book since 9/11 and now was a good time to start. I thought it would be interesting to only read MOST of the book before seeing the movie. If this were any other movie I wouldn’t have bothered but the years and years of nonsensical hype about the series and the influence of it’s mythos on so many other films had me intrigued. I wanted to know what the fuck it was all about. TURNS OUT, after seeing the movie, I found myself loving the book more than I thought had whilst reading it.
