BATTLEFIELD EARTH By L. Ron Hubbard Review


21st Century Edition

FICTION / Science Fiction / Apocalyptic & Post-Apocalyptic

By L. Ron Hubbard

A thousand years in the future, an alien empire has overrun the planet and the human race has become an endangered species. Now all that stands between mankind and total extinction is a courageous young man determined to rally the scattered tribes of his species to take on the technologically advanced oppressors.
It's one of the bestselling sci-fi novels of all time—nonstop action, adventure and intergalactic intrigue.
This 21st Century Edition includes expanded content:
* Never-before unpublished author handwritten notes about Battlefield Earth
* Fascinating author interview 
* Lyrics from soundtrack for the book by the author 
"SF's new, larger audience is about to discover an old Master. This has everything: suspense, politics, war, humor, diplomacy and intergalactic finance."—Publishers Weekly
"The futuristic tale, featuring aliens and humans fighting for survival, comes across as compelling and believable."—Booklist
"Think of the Star Wars sagas and Raiders of the Lost Ark, mix in the triumph of Rocky I, II and III and you have captured the exuberance, style and glory of Battlefield Earth."—Baltimore Sun
"Battlefield Earth has the same exuberant pacing and action-loaded story as Star Wars." —Roland J. Green
"Brilliant science fiction author."—New York Daily News
My Review:
Wow! To hold this book I feel like I struck gold! Hubbard is such a master of his genre. To actually see handwritten notes was like I won a prize! This is the book I mention when I want to talk about Science Fiction! Everyone knows about it and a lot of people have read it! Now I can get answers to some questions in the interview as well! The plot is great, the characters are great and the world the author created is not easily forgotten. This is a book that lures you in and you can not get out until you are done reading the last page! I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy, all opinions are my own.
