Battlefield Earth is one of the science fiction classics. When you look through the Amazon and Goodreads reviews, will see over and over comparisons to other sci-fi and fantasy classics like Ender’s Game, Dune, the Foundation trilogy, and Lord of Rings (for its epic adventure and Hero’s Journey).
In short, it is the story of young hero who rises from the ashes to take Earth back from a dominating alien race. Overwhelming odds. Take the intensity of Independence Day and mix it with the triumph of Star Wars.
I also want to give a shout-out for the audiobook. It is an Audie-Award winner, which is the top honor for audiobooks. This multi-cast production is like listening to a movie in your head: the music, sound effects and over 60 actors bring it to life. Much more than an audiobook – it is an experience. LISTEN HERE
Sadistic Aliens… …Man is an endangered species. Is it the end of the world or the rebirth of a new one? In the year A.D. 3000, Earth is a post-apocalyptic wasteland. The great cities stand crumbling as a brutal reminder of what we once were. When the aliens invaded, all the world’s armies mustered little resistance against their advanced weapons. Now, all that stands between humanity and total extinction is Jonnie Goodboy Tyler—the courageous young hero determined to rally the scattered tribes of humanity in an all-out battle for freedom. The fate of the Galaxy lies on the Battlefield of Earth.
You’ll love Battlefield Earth because as Neil Gaiman says, it’s “un-put-downable.”
The 21st Century Edition features rare hand-written notes by L. Ron Hubbard and an author interview. Discovering the author’s thoughts is fascinating.
