Title: A Princess of Mars

Author: Edgar Rice Burroughs

Why read?

This book, considered by many to be the “grandfather” of modern Science Fiction, inspired the likes of George Lucas and Carl Sagan, and also served as the source material for Disney’s box-office blunder, John Carter (an under-appreciated film, in my opinion). Warning: while the plot/imagery is reminiscent of Star Wars, the style of prose is of the early 20th century… a bit clunky!
