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.

This is an amazing science fiction saga. I've read Battlefield Earth several times and its one of those books you keep around as you know you'll pick it up and read it - yet again!

I read the book back in the 80's and I am reading it again. It is like reading it for the first time. I really like the book and am glad it has published again.

This is a great audiobook that takes the book to new heights. There were many good actors and great sound effects. I found myself thinking of ways to increase my listening time because I enjoyed it so much! Highly, highly recommend it!
