Earth has been dominated for 1,000 years by the giant, gas-breathing invaders from the planet Psychlo. Now, at the bleak dawn of the fourth millennium, Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, one of the handful of human beings that have survived 10 centuries of alien conquest and near annihilation, decides to bravely venture out of his dwindling, stricken community in the Rocky Mountains.

Initially captured and enslaved by Terl, the ruthless Psychlo Security Chief, Jonnie enlists the aid of a small band of tough Scots in a final, daring challenge to the invincible Psychlo power. At stake in the struggle: the future of Earth...and the Galaxy!

In this riveting audio version, L. Ron Hubbard's groundbreaking novel Battlefield Earth is given a dynamic and versatile portrayal that captures the epic and compelling action along with the unforgettable characters of a science fiction masterpiece.

    " I'm not a fan of L. Ron Hubbard but this book is without question the greatest sci/fi book I've ever read. Amazing! "

    " I read this when I was much younger and loved it very much. The movie was terrible. "

    " WOW... I'm so conflicted over this book. One the one hand it was a book that dragged on, a book that while daunting in size should have only taken me about a month... it took me 4 months! It dragged on and on and on... you get the point. But on the other hand the book picked up in the second half and had me hooked despite the awful prose, the pathetically made up names and ideas, the jumbled train of thought, the... well again, you get the point. I loved the main character, i loved the supporting characters, I felt I got into their lives and was hooked from the beginning, but I hated the writing style soooooo much! Don't even get me on the overly obvious parallels to society, but the entire plot just felt forced. Again, the characters redeemed this entire book, but only so much. I would not undertake this book unless you LOVE post-apocolyptic literature, which, while sci-fi at its core, it really was. A post-apocolyptic society of humans pushed to the brink of extinction by an alien race who then fights up to save themselves and the universe. Sounds great, but again, the writing style is so drab that if your like me you'll find it difficult to wade through. Overall a 3 but a 5 for characters and a 1 for writing style. Trust me, when he writes in dialects it is so distracting and drives you CRAZY! So shy away unless your like me and a glutten for punishment! "

    " L. Ron Hubbard's a loon when it comes to everything else, but this book is great. Very deep story, interstellar finance, technology theft and the brink of planetary destruction. Great! "
