Just finished A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, also known as the first John Carter of Mars novel.
Typical ERB, of course. John Carter is, basically, a perfect human being, adored by almost everybody. He learns an entire new language within days, similar to how ERB's Tarzan learned to act civilized and speak various languages in a short timespan. However, I actually really enjoyed the adventure, even though the end was... contrived. As in, John Carter doesn't remember he knew something vital to solve a problem until it was basically too late to make use of. Made me scratch my head, really. But oh well, the rest was fun, if obviously dated in style.
Gonna go back to Lady of the Lake and Oregairu for a while and then continue with Gods of Mars, book two.
