Battlefield Earth! By L.Ron Hubbard

Battlefield earth by L Ron Hubbard

One of the quotes on the cover of this MP3 Battlefield EARTH Audiobook is “A Vivid MOVIE of The Mind” I truly couldn’t have described it better.

Even if you aren’t a SciFi buff you will enjoy this book!!  Starting with the beginning where you get such a great insight to where SciFi writing began written by L.Ron Hubbard himself. The forward of the book is so interesting, learning the difference between fantasy writing and Science Fiction.

When you mix science fiction with fantasy you do not have a pure genre. The two are, to a professional, separate genres. I notice today there is a tendency to mingle them and then excuse the result by calling it “imaginative fiction.” Actually they don’t mix well: science fiction, to be credible, has to be based on some degree of plausibility; fantasy gives you no limits at all. Writing science fiction demands care on the part of the author; writing fantasy is as easy as strolling in the park. (In fantasy, a guy has no sword in his hand; bang, there’s a magic sword in his hand.) This doesn’t say one is better than the other. They are simply very different genres from a professional viewpoint.

But there is more to this: science fiction, particularly in its Golden Age, had a mission. I cannot, of course, speak for my friends of that period. But from Campbell and from “shooting the breeze” with other writers of the time, one got the very solid impression that they were doing a heavy job of beating the drum to get man to the stars.

At the beginning of that time, science fiction was regarded as a sort of awful stepchild in the world of literature. But worse than that, science itself was not getting the attention or the grants or the government expenditures it should have received. There has to be a lot of public interest and demand before politicians shell out the financing necessary to get a subject whizzing.

This audio book is 47.5 HOURS long, this is a book you sink your teeth into. This is a book that held my attention from the first word. Now, I am supposed to be packing up this house for the move, this book has been great company. Well, except for the times when I found I was sitting down with coffee in hand just watching my vivid movie in my head!!

There are 150,000 sound effects!!

There are 65 VOICES!! The voice in the beginning of this clip gives me goosebumps.

There is action, there is fine detailed descriptions so imaginative and so detailed that I can’t believe it’s not REAL.
