Another common complaint is that John Norman's books are poorly written trash with no literary merit whatsoever. It seems to me that those who accuse John Norman of misogyny have either never read the Gor books or have given them only the most cursory examination. Let's look at the word misogynist. What about the claims that John Norman advocates the subjugation, physical abuse, enslavement, and rape of women?

The party of treason in Ar is triumphant. After the disaster of the delta campaign Ar is substantially defenseless. The forces of Cos, and her allies, are welcomed into the city as liberators. Ar's Station, which held out so valiantly against superior forces in the north, is denounced as traitorous. Veterans of the delta campaign are despised and ridiculed. Patriotism and manhood are denigrated. Ar's walls are being dismantled willingly by her own citizens to the music of flute girls. Lawlessness and propaganda are rampant. Marlenus, the great ubar, who might have organized and led a resistance, who might have rallied the city, is presumed dead, somewhere in the Voltai mountains. The Home Stone of Ar's Station is displayed in Ar as an object of contempt. Marcus, of Ar's Station, wishes to regain the Home Stone of his beloved city, for no city can die whose Home Stone survives. Cabot is concerned with a warrior's vengeance upon sedition and treachery, and, in particular, with meeting one who stands high amongst the conspirators, a beautiful woman now enthroned as ubara, whose name is Talena. Coinciding with the 40th anniversary of the first book of the Gorean Saga, TARNSMAN OF GOR, E-Reads is proud to release the very first complete publication of all Gor books by John Norman, in both print and ebook editions, including the long-awaited 26th novel in the saga, WITNESS OF GOR.

The story advances the plot of the War between Cos and Ar. It discusses the beginning of a resistance in Ar which has fallen by treason and propaganda. The book makes a sharp point about how the citizenry or Ar is manipulated to make them docile for conquest. Probably a point well taken in real life. Usual prattle about slave girls and their lot in life - pleasant but overdone. If you read enough of John Norman to get to book 25 you will not find anything new here but we soldier on. Boots Tarsk Bit the thespian makes an appearance. It's in good fun got me to book 26 - probably the Authors intention.
I have read all of John Normans Gor books up to this point. He spins a marvelously imaginative story but like many of his books his constantly overbearing beliefs on how women should be treated gets beyond tedious. We get the idea John you don't have to beat it to death over and over in virtually every chapter. Maybe he gets paid by the page, I don't know but I do know that his books would be several hundred pages shorter and a far more pleasurable read if he would just leave out some, just some of his misogynistic ramblings. I knew what I was getting into when I bought this book from another readers review which said basically it's the same old John Norman, but fight your way through it because it does a great deal to set up the next book. So I'm plodding through it by doing a lot of quick scans and skipping, sometimes nearly whole chapters. Will I buy the next book, absolutely.
As was his tendancy, the books got longer and longer, this is no exception at over 500 pages. I enjoyed the book but it never led to anywhere as this, for many years, was the last book. #26 did not tie in well with this. If Norman could have kept the thread going from this book into 26 it would have been much more enjoyable, even going back to the themes from volumes 11-16ish but instead goes in a new direction. This is kind of a 'dead end' for the series if you ask me. I enjoyed the book but any questions you have will remain as such...
I have enjoyed all of the Gor series by John Norman. However there are parts that are very repetitive throughout all the books. The theme of female slavery and the details that he repeats over and over do get old at times. I am continuing through the series because of the main story line and plot. I want to know how the story unfolds and how it will end.
Excellent Service - Thank you! Will enjoy my nightly reading time.
I enjoyed how this book ended. It is enough to keep you wanting more. On to the next book. Huzzah!
another great book in the series, i noticed a lot less of the staple 'rants' that interrupted the storyline in previous books, i got through it from cover to cover in about 3 weeks of nightly reading.
John Norman was a writer of the 60's, not the best writer but what his writings have given to many people is a world that they can read and have come to life in their mind. This gift that have driven many men to be honorable, and women to be sensual to the men they love. If you can read all the books you will enjoy the understanding of a life on Gor. I enjpy reading how Tarl is patient and uses his heart and honor to act in any situation.

Many people role play from these books and enjoy making Gor come to life in Second life and many other chat rooms.
