A wondrous combination of I am Legend, Planet of the Apes, and John Carter of Mars, Battlefield Earth has all the best features of classic and modern science fiction. Do yourself a favor and read this... book, or even better listen to the audiobook. See More

If you haven't read you're missing out on probably the best science fiction work ever. If your judging this off the movie... Don't. It's simply one of the best stories I've ever gotten the chance to read

I've read the first Edition hardcover when Battlefield Earth was originally published. Awesome story. I lost sleep over it, couldn't put the book down ...
Then I read it again when paperback was publi...shed. Then in kindle format recently. I still was thrilled with the book! Now I've listened to the Audio version. Best ever! They really captured the spirit of the book and the sound effects are awesome. I listened to it in my car on my commute and would take the long way home so I could listen longer... See More

Battlefield Earth is what originally launched my interest in the science fiction genre. I have had a copy of the book since I was in the 4th grade, where I was bullied for reading a "book with too man...y words". I still own my original copy, with the cover ripped off from said bully, and occasionally go back through and read it once again. The story grips the imagination with every read through, as if you were almost watching a movie, and noticing something new for the very first time in the small details. It's an impressive read, and I would recommend it to any of those people out there looking to broaden, or even jump right into, the science fiction genre. See More

Science fiction is the most motivating subject in the fields of math and science. Battlefield Earth and other science fiction books have been my secret weapon in public education. It's been my go-to t...ool for motivating the disenfranchised and straight A students as well. I've helped students win many awards against student scientist all over the world. When a person is looking for a unique science fair project turn to Mr. Hubbard or some of the other great sci-fi writers for inspiration. Ask anyone from NASA the role Sci-fi has played in their career and we wonder why it's not required reading for anyone with their eyes on the stars. I couldn't recommend this book enough from one teacher to another. This book helped me become the Colorado Lockheed Martin teacher of the year for scientific research. See More

Truly epic sci-fi! I picked up the audiobook version and was blown away by the superlative voice acting and awesome sound effects which really made the entire experience come alive. This epic story is... chock-full of action and intrigue which keeps you on the edge of your seat and always leaves you wanting more!

Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 is one of the very few audiobooks that I've listened to *twice* and I expect that my third encounter will be coming in the near future! If you enjoy thought-provoking science fiction or even if you just appreciate great writing which spins a kick-butt yarn then you definitely won't want to miss this one

As an avid audiobook fan, my initial reaction to the full production was one of uncertainty. I wasn't sure whether I liked it or not but after about 20mins I was immersed. What an absolutely fantastic... production and portrayal of the characters. This has really brought one of my favourite stories to life and I'm only disappointed by the fact that it is over. Great job to all involved!! See More

This is old classic L. Ron Hubbard before Christian Science.
This is science fiction and a damn good read. I read this about 30 years ago, I was so disappointed with what John Travolta did with it. I... wish somebody would do it again today with the use of CGI, this would be a film to talk about, in a good way.
If you like science fiction then read this, you won't be disappointed!

One of the Top Ten SF books of all time! L Ron Hubbard is an absolutely amazing writer. My copy sits on the top shelf next to my Bible. Battlefield Earth explores the entire range of human - alien int...eraction and leaves no doubt about what human potential can achieve. See More

I have the audio book and I have a hard time getting out of my car now. I usually ride a motorcycle because I live in LA and it's nice to avoid the traffic. But when I have my Battlefield Earth in my car, I don't mind sitting in traffic. I've never said this about any music or other audio book. I'm actually getting tools from the book that apply to situations in my life. Never expected that. See More

great film I would give it ten out of ten stars, First rate acting. awesome cinematography, if not a very very very far fetched idea this could not and never will happen.

One of the best books of all time. Engaging, believable characters and a plot that is unique. I recommend this book to everyone who can read above a fourth grade level. High adventure and insights ...throughout this book make it a work that can be enjoyed many times. If you have read it once, you need to read it again. See More

I read Battlefield Earth when it first came out and a couple of times since. And this year I got the audio-book for Christmas. The audio-book is absolutely stunning in quality, sound effects and the s...tory... it all comes alive while I drive. Great job. See More

I listened to the audio book, I've been a fan of SiFi for years and rate this among the top 3 of all the books I've read.

This book has everything, and I think it is the finest of L. Ron Hubbard's books. He solves space travel, international finance, and creates a mathematics that will change forever how you think about ...that subject. Just a brilliant book. See More

The most epically amazing work of fiction I've ever read. Ironically there's a lot of truth in it too!

This was a book that I simply couldn't put down. It's one of the few books I have read in my time that has truly captivated me from start to finish.
