      As a Mormon I feel a sense of gratitude to L Ron Hubbard for coming up with a religion with followers that most people perceive as being bigger weirdos than Mormons The book is good fun An against all odds, buckskin rags to laser beam riches, story of a poor caveman named Johnny Goodboy who ends up the most powerful entity person in the galaxy and annihilates an entire race of nasty overlord bugbears in the process Yea it is pure crap but its pure crap with a Tom Selleck mustache

    2. Ted Read on said:

      Back in the 80s when I was just a little nerd I mowed many a lawn to afford the then outrageous sum of 39 for the hardcover of this book I had no idea who L Ron Hubbard was back then, of course I just saw a post apocalyptic sci fi book that seemed to be cool and I wanted it I was a fairly well read little kid back then even if it was only classic or now obscure science fiction authors.So this was the first book I ever HATED I think it went off to a used book store years later but if I could I wo [...]

    3. Andrew on said:

      Don t be fooled by the fact that the movie adaptation was the worst movie ever made, or that L Ron Hubbard is responsible for the spiritual pyramid scheme that is scientology This book is the coolest.

    4. Wanda on said:

      My kingdom for an editor At over 1000 pages, this novel really needed one, but I guess it s not so easy to edit a paranoid madman for that s what L Ron Hubbard was at this point He states in the introduction that he didn t make any effort to contain himself while writing Battlefield Earth and it shows What also shows is the era when Hubbard did the majority of his science fiction writing Battlefield Earth may have been published in the 1980s, but it reads much like a novel of the 1950s.The main [...]

    5. Crew on said:

      This was a horrible book and even worse movie I read it in 2000, so it has been a while, but I remember just how stupid of a book it was I struggled through every page I can t believe I even finished it, but i wanted to read it before I saw the movie Big mistakes To get an idea of what it is like, go play with a 5 8 year old boy Pretend to shoot him with a laser He will then pretend to put up a forcefield to block the laser Then you have to pretend to have some weapon that will break through the [...]

    6. Coquille Fleur on said:

      Post, post apocalypse novel that goes a step further than most Don t let the L Ron Hubbard part scare you, no Scientology mentioned The John Travolta movie sucked, so ignore that, too The book is multi layered in meaning and probably has truth in it than most apocalypse novels Johnny Goodboy Tyler has been living in his village in a primitive mountain lifestyle for all of his eighteen or so years The village is dying, with people sick, passed out on herbs, or just apathetic in their hard scrabb [...]

    7. David on said:

      I Had to Bathe my Eyes in Fire I read this in high school as I was curious about many different ideas, philosophies, religions, and had a vague notion that it was attached to the founder of the Dianetics thing and importantly, I loved reading just about anything I finished the book and spent a few relaxing minutes with coals in my eye sockets to get the awful plot loopholes, the Deus Ex Machina every five pages, and the painfully awkward rhythm and flow of the story to leech out of my brain Aft [...]

    8. Pavarti Tyler on said:

      I know right 5 stars How is that even possible And yet here we are This book is SOOO amazingly good It is detailed, specific, imaginative, technical, possible and impossible all in one breath The world Hubbard has created here is so detailed it s hard to believe it doesn t actually exist Also, for once, this book is long enough Few Sci Fi books in my opinion tell the entire story, they gloss over or cut out before getting to the completion of the event This book does none of that, you are spared [...]

    9. Banner on said:

      Battlefield Earth has long been one of my favorite science fiction reads This is a reread for me It has a great plot with lots of action The aliens are some of the most interesting I would compare them to Niven quality I never felt that the story dragged, which is saying something for a 1,000 page book It is a fun and inspiring read.There is a pulpish element that sometimes raises the quality of the story and sometimes brings it down Jonnie Goodboy is our protagonist and he is straight out of th [...]

    10. Kecia on said:

      Without a doubt the worst book I ever read It was loaned to me by a co worker and I read the whole thing There is nothing to recommend this book No redeeming qualities at all Big Fat Waste of Time.

    11. sunyatta on said:

      Ha, Ha, Ha.I just remembered I read a fucking L Ron Hubbard book

    12. Mike (the Paladin) on said:

      I know but I enjoyed this book too bad about the movie I found it a fun read and really there weren t a lot of hints of things to come It s also too bad Hubbard didn t stick to writing science fantasyI mean while admitting that s what it is.There are some silly touches here I mean Johnny Goodboy Tyler but it s also readable for such a huge tome Earth is dominated by a star spanning alien intelligence that pretty much rules the galaxy at least because it possesses a science that no one else does [...]

    13. Bruce Deming on said:

      A luxurious unrushed performance which extracts to the maximum every moment of drama inherent in the original story with the voice acting, sound an musical accompaniment If I had a psycho hand I would give this audio performance a 6 of 6 stars The story starts out in the the year 3000 with an Alien bar scene on earth where hard pressed misused Psycho mine workers discuss the likely extinction of humanity over drinks of Kerbango and shooting mayflies with laser guns belch worthless native animals [...]

    14. Tim on said:

      Don t be put off by the fact that the founder of Scientology wrote this novel, and definitely don t let the horrendous movie throw you off This book is incredible Well, at the least the first 3 4 of the book is The last few chapters are interesting, but not gripping, as they detail the events that occur in the aftermath of the climax.

    15. Gumdaar on said:

      Scanning the first page of reviews I am baffled Apparent to me is that readers if you truly read this book are hung up on other issues than what makes a good sci fi read, or base opinion on a poorly done film This book contains over 1000 pages of smooth rock em sock em edge of your pants adventure set in the not so distant future Perhaps its the lack of vampire sex that turns off readers Purely speculation, but I bet Stephen Hawking after reading this novel would say to himself, yep This will ha [...]

    16. John Goodwin on said:

      I read this book many years ago and have recently listened to the soon to be released unabridged multi cast audiobook I found this book to still be incredibly well written with a high volume of fast paced adventure which I like a lot Hubbard really creates memorable characters, sometimes with a minimum of words, such that you know that person I also like how the evolution of the hero rapidly moves out of his personal plight and that of his girlfriend and the town he grew up in, to that of attemp [...]

    17. Bill on said:

      I suffered through this book until the very end just so I could say I had read it I love good sci fi This is NOT good sci fi Unless you enjoy psychic pain, avoid this book.

    18. Jay on said:

      It s times like these I really wish you could rate a book zero stars I read this out of curiosity but the horrible writing and thinly veiled attack on psychology and modern medicine made it just painful to get through.

    19. Withoutmercy on said:

      There seems to be an inordinately large number of detractors of this work of science fiction that for my part seems undeserved For me, I loved most everything about this book, the social commentary, the science fiction, the author s conceived universe, the satire and comic relief, the pulse pounding drama and adventure and above all, the sure satisfaction of good triumphing over evil This book has all those things.Hubbard was a gifted writer whose conceived images flow through our minds to creat [...]

    20. Rasheed on said:

      This is one of my all time favourite SF novels, and it has nothing to do with the author s Scientology nonsense Also, don t be fooled by the horrid film adaptation.Read the unabridged edition it when I was 15 or 16 I used sit in the back row in Music class, and read it, but on the second day the teacher saw me Fortunately, he didn t say or do anything except keep the book during that period Believe it or not, I am is his landlord now Critical Acclaim A terrific story Robert A Heinlein I read Bat [...]

    21. Brett on said:

      Battlefield Earth is a good science fiction novel One of the most remarkable ideas from this book is the complete unity of the population of earth I know that world unity and peace may be just as science fiction as aliens and advanced technologies, but I hope we can make progress in that direction I just hope it doesn t take a severe global disaster like aliens threatening to destroy or enslave all of us to accomplish world unity.L Ron Hubbard leaves his philosophical ideas, for the most part, o [...]

    22. Edwin Stratton-Mackay on said:

      Total dogshit.Scientologists must repeat MUST give this book good reviews and say how well written it is They are not permitted to disparage L Ron Hubbard or any of his works.

    23. S. Pearce on said:

      The opening line is one that has stuck with me over the years I first read this book as a young boy, and it was firmly one of my favourites Then adulthood and awareness of the author s other interests influenced my opinion, which I suppose is unfair I have re read the book, and from an adult s perspective would give it 3 stars The storyline is a little longwinded, to say the least However, I have to consider my childhood perspective, when I would have unreservedly given this 5 stars Back then, I [...]

    24. Phillip Lozano on said:

      This pulpy mishmash of Flash Gordon and Planet of the Apes is actually fairly enjoyable light adventure for a good portion, but it eventually collapses under the ponderous weight of Hubbard s ceaseless moralizing and bloated sense of self importance The main character is named Jonny Goodboy Tyler, for Glob s sake Hubbard s self consciously on the nose reaction to Luke Skywalker, written with the aim of turning the thick tome into a major motion picture, as the jacket copy proclaimed for so many [...]

    25. Zeke on said:

      This book is epic I have read and re read this one a number of times and each time it has been a blast The setting and premise of the story is one of my favorites Humanity has been nearly wiped out and Earth dominated by a dominant alien race But the fun of it all is that the Earth was conquered merely for its mineral wealth It is, in essence, a backwater hole in the wall, occupied by a handfull of alien laborers and a few middle mangers Humanity was all but wiped out without so much as a second [...]

    26. Theresa on said:

      The best part about this book was when I used it to kill a wasp I couldn t even make it halfway though I was really hoping I d kind of like this, so I could say to myself, Well, L Ron was totally bats, but at least he wrote some good sci fi NO No he did not I have never sympathized with a villainous character, although I disliked every character I encountered in this book, the alien was definitely my least least favorite hoping he d slowly kill Johnny friggin Goodboy and with each paragraph I [...]

    27. Peter on said:

      Truly godawful drivel Worse than drivel Complete and utter garbage It s hard to say which aspects are worse the ones Hubbard copied from other writers, or e elements that he seems to have come up with on his own I have no major problem with plot well,nets that are reinterpreted form other people s works There is, after all, very little that is new under the Sun, and Sci Fi is often to its benefit populated largely by borrowed themes and ideas and archetypal characters who act as as jumping off [...]

    28. Tracy on said:

      This was a 47 hour audiobook that is a full audio production with sound effects, a cast of some 100 actors doing voice over for all the different characters and 3 hours of special music between chapters Needless to say it s quite the production You can read the synopsis for the basic story line but suffice it to say the year is 3000 and Earth has been attacked, demolished and is being mined for valuable metals by an alien race There are some humans alive and surviving outside of Denver Colorado [...]

    29. Mark Mc***** on said:

      Before L Ron Hubbard went bat sh t and decided to write pseudo religious books convince people that they are under the influence of cosmic beings abandoned on earth by an evil emperor He was, at one point, a terrific Sci Fi writer Battlefield earth is a crowning achievement in epic Sci Fi drama A plethora of well developed characters weave a futuristic tale of mankind so long ruled by an alien species that their own history is a myth Until one man, kept as a pet, decides to learn their language [...]

    30. Kaus Wei on said:

      I pride myself on finishing a book, regardless of its difficulties This book though this book defeated me I managed to get halfway through it only finally giving up the ghost at the mail in card that would get me a copy of Dyanetics , but the combination of shallow, uninteresting characters, a tedious writing style, and the book s absurd length, did me in.Maybe just maybe, if it had been subjected to the impartial hand of an editor any editor , it could have been if not a good story, at the very [...]
