Battlefield Earth is a swashbuckling science fiction saga of adventure, daring and courage, when man is an endangered species and the future survival of what's left of the human race is at stake.
 In the year 3000 AD, man has been savagely ruled for a thousand years by a space-plundering race of nine-foot high, gas-breathing conquerors from the planet Psychlo.
 One of the Psychlos, the villainous Terl, enslaves a man-creature and forces him to mine Earth gold. Terl’s plan: to teleport the gold to Psychlo, where he can then return wealthy beyond the dreams of avarice.
 The slave emerges in the form of Jonnie Goodboy Tyler, a member of the dwindling community of only 35,000 human survivors. However, Jonnie has plans other than to make Terl wealthy—namely, to free mankind from alien tyranny—and cause the ultimate destruction of the Psychlo invaders.
But is Jonnie’s fight to save humanity from these gigantic and technologically superior monsters a losing battle? Or will humans regain the Earth once more?
Now, discover the fate of our world for yourself in L. Ron Hubbard’s
pulse-pounding novel Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000!
 Experience the epic adventure that changed the shape of science fiction forever.
 A fully immersive experience—unlike any other audiobook ever produced, featuring over 65 actors from television, film, animation and video games led by Grammy award-winning audiobook producer and narrator Stefan Rudnicki.

This is an audio you can’t just breeze through, nor would you want to. This audio covers 47 ½ hours and a has a full cast production of more than 65 actors performing 198 characters.

The variations in the dialogue will hold you captive. The mannerisms and accents of the actors adds depth to this enthralling sci-fi novel. To enhance the audio even further, there are more than 150,000 sound effects heard throughout the story. It’s like a movie playing out without the picture.

The story will have you pulling for Jonnie Goodboy Tyler as he encounters the Psychlos. The conflict between the aliens and the human race will take you on a roller coaster ride of emotions.

If you’re a Star Wars and/or Star Trek fan, you’ll enjoy the saga of BATTLEFIELD EARTH. Don’t let the length of the story cause you to shy away. The story moves at a steady pace making it seems like a shorter novel. This is a fascinating look into the future that was written over 30 years ago, but is as modern as if it was written today. This is an epic sci-fi adventure you won’t soon forget.

FTC Full Disclosure – A copy of this audio book was sent to me by the publisher in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review. The thoughts are completely my own and given honestly and freely.

  1. Pam, deary, are you promoting scientology now? :PPP

  2. I'd forgotten Hubbard's background as a science fiction writer, Mason. What an ambitious undertaking that audio must have been - 47+ hours, plus such a big cast! Thanks for sharing.

  3. Never got into the book. It is better than the movie though.

  4. Thank you for your very nice review, Mason. We worked very hard to make a top quality audiobook and it is rewarding when we get such comments as yours. Something as seemingly inconsequential as maintaining a constant on the level of intensity of voice acting with that many actors over that many hours was a challenge all of its own.
