I picked up this book to see what all the fuss was about (re: Gorean lifestyle) to be blithely surprised.
The Chronicles of Counter-Earth Volume 1 was one of the very few books I simply could not put down. Thus I read it very quickly, falling in love with John Norman's prose. It was not only easy to read but thankfully not dumbed down. In the least, it felt unique.
I find this book to be an excellent example of old-school fantasy in the vein of Jack Vance's The Dragonmasters. A little sci-fi mixed with fantasy which some call Sword & Planet.
