The result wasgradually increasing darkness as one passed into each succeedingchamber. In the last of the three I could just distinguish objects, and that wasall. With it came I, David, Emperor of Pellucidar. Idoubt if any other potentate in a world's history ever made a moreundignified entrance. I landed head first on all fours, but I camequickly and was on my feet before the man in the dark guessed what hadhappened.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' Pellucidar: At the Earth's Core

Edgar Rice Burroughs' Pellucidar: At the Earth's Core. At the Earth's Core: Book 1 of the Pellucidar Series (Bk. 1). Pellucidar is book two of the seven-volume Pellucidar series by Burroughs, which tells the story of the adventures in a hollow-earth world where intelligent reptiles were the dominant species and humans were stuck in stone age civilization. One of the remarkable things Burroughs created in this hollow-world are the fact that, without sunrise or sunset, there is simply an eternal mid-day sun and thus no real conception of time.

Burroughs Edgar Rice. I drew my note-book from my pocket and made a careful topographical sketch of the locality within the range of my vision. PELLUCIDAR By Edgar Rice Burroughs PROLOGUE Several years had elapsed since I had found the opportunity to do any big-game hunting; for at last I had my plans almost perfected for a return to my old stamping-grounds in northern Africa, where in other days I had had excellent sport in pursuit of the king of beasts. The date of my departure had been set; I was to leave in two weeks.

  • First read this novella length story some 40 years ago as a child and picked up the audio book and kindle combo package last year. I already knew the story so it waited low in my que of things to read until yesterday. It only takes about five hours to listen through the audiobook, or even less to read soI finished it in one day. It is a fine adventure story of the sort that appeal especially to boys and young men, with great feats of daring do interspersed with set backs complicating the like of our protagonist. David, our self declared Emperor of Pellucider Is the same main character from the first book (At The Earth's Core) and you should definitely read the books in story order unless you are familiar with the setting and characters.

  • One of the marks of a great writer is that he can take an unbelievable situation and make it sound true and accurate and believable. “Pellucidar”is book two of the seven-volume Pellucidar series by Burroughs, which tells the story of the adventures in a hollow-earth world where intelligent reptiles were the dominant species and humans were stuck in stone age civilization. One of the remarkable things Burroughs created in this hollow-world are the fact that, without sunrise or sunset, there is simply an eternal mid-day sun and thus no real conception of time. Although he was not the first one to ever postulate the existence of an inner-earth world, no one either before or since has done it half as well. Above all, this book, like the others in this terrific series, is a wonderful adventure story of fighting and chivalry.

    In the first book in the series (“At the Earth’s Core”), Innes and Perry tunneled into this inner-world in a mighty metal prospector, not having any idea that it ever existed. At the end of the first book, Innes returns to the outer crust to gather arms, tools, and books so that he and Perry can advance human civilization in the inner world and take on the Mahar (reptile) empire. This second book of the series details Innes return to the inner world and his adventures there and how with his tools, weapons, and technological know-how brought back from the outer world, he leads a federation of stone age kingdoms in battle against the Mahars, bringing to bear weapons that no one in the inner world could ever have dreamed of.

    It is truly a great story and, once you expect the conceit that there is an inner world with an inner sun and intelligent creatures there of many kinds, you will enjoy this book immensely. It is simply a great adventure story and quite enjoyable to read.

  • Sitting down with one of these "old " ERB books is like spending an afternoon with an old friend. This is one of the books that I read as a pre-teen, I am now in my seventies. I enjoyed them then, and they are still just as enjoyable, if you keep in mind the time and world in which they were written. There is a quality in the writing that might escape some readers. ERB, through his characters, displays a self deprecating sense of self assurrance. His characters often say things like," I was not" the best of this or that, but I put every ounce of skill or training or whatever it took to meet the situation at hand to accomplish a task. His characters establish friendships and are loyal to friends and family to the point of self denial and loss of self satisfaction, qualities which might not be understood these days.
    I also like the book just for it's sense of escape and adventure.

  • This is one of Burroughs' book in the Pellucidar series. The series involves the exploration of a land mass formed when the earth cooled. This formed a shell as Earth's center core continued to shrink and separated from the shell. We live on the outside. Other people live on the inner surface of the shell. That land area is Pellucidar.

    There are seven books, I believe. in the series. Go to Australia's Gutenberg to get them all.
    They all form a continuing flow as the current book takes up some unresolved condition in a previous book. And, then leaves something for the next book to hook onto.
    Does this Burroughs fella know how to keep a pot boiling and then bring 'em back for the next one? You bet!

  • This is a classic of pulp fantasy and that is what you get when you buy it. It is not the finest writing and the story is pretty much the same as what you will find in nearly any of the ERB stories like this (Barsoom, Tarzan, etc.) So if you like that kind of story, you will like this book.
    I read this because it was a classic and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Just remember that it was written in a different time and place and that the social attitudes (especially those towards women) are the product of their time. On the whole this was a fun (and quick) read. If you liked other books by Burroughs you will like this one and its sequels.

  • ...It is one of the peculiarities of life within Pellucidar that man is more often the hunted than the hunter." Classic science fiction from a master that I'm finding to be practically timeless making it a fine pick up and I do recommend!

  • Written over 100 years ago and still a fun read,transporting you to another world. Humor,adventure,alien creatures the kind of book that makes it easy to stop watching tv.

  • Pellucidar is a sequel to "At the Earth's Core", so if you don't read that first, it will may be harder to appreciate Pellucidar. As one who did read the first book, I can only imagine that if I had not, I would have enjoyed Pellucidar a bit less. In any case, they are both easy, fun reads that never bore. They are not very long, which makes them easier to start and finish than a typical Tarzan. Burroughs' At the Earth's Core stories are also different in that they are told in the first person. In any case, you can't beat free, so I suggest starting with At the Earth's Core and moving on to Pellucidar if you like the first book. Light Kindle fiction.
