Summary

Long ago in their intraspecific conflicts a violent, technologically sophisticated life form, the Kurii, destroyed their native world. They now seek another. Between Earth and Gor, or the Counterearth, and the power of the imperialistic, predatory Kurii, now ensconced in the “Steel Worlds,” a number of satellite colonies concealed amongst the debris of the asteroid belt, stands only the defensive might of the Priest-Kings of Gor. Tarl Cabot, once of Bristol, England, laboring in behalf of the Priest-Kings, once managed to foil a Kur attempt to set the stage for an invasion of Gor. In that venture he encountered a worthy foe, the redoubtable Half-Ear, or Zarendargar, now fallen from favor in the Steel Worlds. The Kurii, unforgiving and relentless, have sent a death squad to Gor seeking Zarendargar. They seek the assistance of Cabot in this enterprise, but he declines to be of service. A decorated piece of hide, bearing strange symbols, tells a story, which may or may not be true. It suggests that Half-Ear, or Zarendargar, whom Cabot believed dead, may yet live. The death squad will seek Zarendargar, but, so, too, will Cabot, to warn him, for once, long ago, and faraway, in the polar north of Gor, each with the other had shared drink, a gesture of warriors, a cup lifted amongst foes. But to pursue this mission Cabot must enter and traverse the Barrens, the vast Eastern prairies of the primary Gorean continent, lands contested by tribes of warring savages, lands forbidden to strangers.

Good Story

Not to everyone's taste but I enjoyed it, the narration was as good as it could've been based on how awkwardly this series is written.

Excellent storytelling and it kept my interest.

Excellent story telling, it kept my interest at bay. I'm so glad that (in the end) the slave girl got what she wanted.

Surprised at insight into woman's feelings!

What did you like best about Slave Girl of Gor? What did you like least?

I truly started reading it with the intention of writing the answering "woman's point of view" to the whole thing, but was pleasantly surprised to see the author truly had a handle on it already!

What did you like best about this story?

The emotional power struggle between man and woman which has been going on since we were kicked out of the Garden!

Was Slave Girl of Gor worth the listening time?

Most definitely, and is one of those that I will probably re-read! :)

If submission is your thing

Where does Slave Girl of Gor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Since my marriage has turned D/s, I looked for this book. Yes, it's kind of cheesy fantasy, and really -- Goreans have the ability of interplanetary space travel, but they ride around on birds and fight with swords and knives? But don't let pesky details clutter your guilty pleasures here. John Norman (aka Lange) has some pretty good psychological insights on submissive's emotions and libido (I know I'm not supposed to think that, the Cambridge thought police are on their way, no worries). I've bookmarked a number of great quotes.

What did you like best about this story?

The psychological insights regarding female submission. The guilty erotic pleasure.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Most of the performance was okay, but there are a number of places that feel chopped up or overdubbed and disturb the flow.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Who cares?

Any additional comments?

Who needs 50 Shades?

Slave Girl of Gor

Very well written, as are all of John Norman's Gor books. A very good book.

26 hours of constantly repeating dialog, and rape!

What would have made Slave Girl of Gor better?

Relate-able characters! There are 3 types for characters in this book, the arrogant woman (she is there to be later broken, enslaved, and of course raped.. a lot), The arrogant man (this guy is there pound his chest, be a total ass, and to break down any woman with even a hint of respect for herself. Oh, and rape, and rape, and rape..etc), and the seeks-no-better-life slave (these girls have only minor differences in personality on a whole, and are just rape-candy). Who the hell is there to cheer for?

What could John Norman have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Be realist. Rape in real life creates resentment in most victims. Now imagine a bunch of knuckle dragging paga drinkers being served by girls they overwork, beat, and rape. Hey man-things you're trusting your meals to be made by your VICTIMS, and being served drinks by your VICTIMS. That's not smart! They could poison your hairy butts, and lock you in a cage with hungry sleens. These girls accept this treatment without any issue...weird!

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

Joy did a good job, but she was still working with trash. She could only do so well with it.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

It made me really sick, and feel like I needed a shower.

Any additional comments?

This novel makes many assumptions about women that are total crap. Some of the smartest people are women, some of the best athletes are women, and names are EASY to find. Now I'm off to that shower...ugh.

The only story I would give back to Audible.

What disappointed you about Slave Girl of Gor?

I found the concept repulsive, knowing a male wrote this trying to emulate the thought processes of a woman devolving into slave mentality.

What was most disappointing about John Norman’s story?

Not sure I quit reading it.

Would you be willing to try another one of Joy Learner’s performances?

Possibly, but not if it deals with female subjugation.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Maybe for a shrink into bondage.

Any additional comments?

I have read many books from the Gor series and enjoyed them, maybe he was trying to expand his horizons, or maybe he felt that was what women's role in life should be.
