Ar, the largest city in known Gor, has resemblances to the ancient city of Rome , and its land empire is opposed by the sea-power of the island of Cos. This book should be the epitome of misogynistic literature. I liken it to playing a role playing game.

Apr 18, Wing Kee rated it did not like it. Narrators other than Tarl Cabot are named after the publisher. Action and adventure abound. I certainly don't agree with what some of the more obsessed fans of the series do ie try to live out the Gorean society in real lifebut if the hard core "Trekkies" don't keep one from occasionally enjoying a Star Trek movie or TV show, why should the hard core "Goreans" keep one from occasionally enjoying a Gor novel?
It's like a well-bred Catholic schoolboy which I was was suddenly found loitering outside the local canteen bumming smokes.

And Tarl admitted it was unseemly, and pret-ty sure that he didn't keep a slave himself, if not only faking it for the woman he loved and his own self preservation.

Its a little hard to read at first, but as you get used to it you begin to read with the inflection Norman intends. I first read this book as an adolescent on the way to being a high school drop out.

Politics is not the arbiter of truth; it may be the arbiter of comfort, safety, conformity, and success, but it is not the arbiter of truth; the arbiter of truth is the world and nature; they have the last say in these matters.
Not only will his somber superman enact a master-slave relationship with his chosen mate, but that relationship will be a pure and courtly love, undying and perfect. I heard it gets way worse and Norman pretty much forgoes the thin veil of writing and just goes all 50 shades in the later books, but here not so much.

Review: Tarnsman of Gor, by John Norman
That isn't the story, though. The Asylum version of the Barsoom series. It worked both times. But there are many sorts of truths, as there are flowers and beasts.

This is one of the tales that young boys cut their teeth on when they want to get away from reality, and older men read to escape their boring existence pushing paper. I do not expect a great deal of fantasy reading from this book.

Naturally he gets in with a high-born maiden who scorns him but then at the end pledges herself--she is the daughter of the Ubar of the city of Ar. This book gets Tarl Cabot transported to Gor, the Counter-Earth, which rotates around the sun exactly opposite of Earth and is therefore The Gor books have a bad chronifles for being horribly sexist, and many of them are.
