Finished A princess from Mars - E. R. Burroughs.
Had I read this book when I was 12, maybe, I would have really liked it. Now, it was mildly entertaining and predictable, but I’m glad I read it, for I have got an idea of what heroic fantasy/sci-fi is like. I think this is the beginning of the genere, because the book is very clichee and uses a lot of stereotypes. John Carter, for example, is the perfect manly specimen, strong, gentle and courageous whose actions always go for the better. In fact, most of the events in this book are amazingly fit to help John Carter and his missions in times of need. Even his misfortunes do good in the end.
