Publisher's Summary

Tarl Cabot has always believed himself to be a citizen of Earth. He has no inkling that his destiny is far greater than the small planet he has inhabited for the first 20-odd years of his life. One frosty winter night in the New England woods, he finds himself transported to the planet of Gor, also known as Counter-Earth, where everything is dramatically different from anything he has ever experienced. It emerges that Tarl is to be trained as a Tarnsman, one of the most honored positions in the rigid, caste-bound Gorean society. He is disciplined by the best teachers and warriors that Gor has to offer...but to what end?
This is the first book of John Norman's popular and controversial Gorean Saga, a series of novels the author began in 1967 with Tarnsman of Gor and are now considered cult classics. This audiobook is based on the definitive edition recently published by E-Books.

60s fantasy still fresh

I read this book 20 years ago, and it sets up the series beautifully. Yes, some rampant sexism but all good fun. Certainly better than 50 shades of crap. The world of Gor is well realised and feasible, and the pacing and story kept me interested again. Well worth a listen.

Enjoyable read

I hadn't read the Tarnsman of Gor for about 40 years, so I was delighted to see it is now available for download. And I wasn't disappointed - the narration is excellent, and the story itself was as good as I remembered it. The book has a strong plot, lots of humour and is a fun listen! I'm off to download the next in the series.
