    4 stars

    While always curious about this sci-fi epic, for years and years I avoided it due to its supposed connections to Scientology. The AWFUL movie didn't help matters either. But then I came upon having an extra credit available in my audible account, and not having a clear idea of what to listen to next, I chose Battlefield Earth due to the length (a whopping 45+ hrs!) and thought I'd perhaps at least get my money's worth time wise. I was not disappointed. Despite misgivings related to Hubbard and Scientology, Battlefield Earth really has nothing in it tying to it. It's not propaganda at all. It's actually a pretty darn good sci-fi epic. The audiobook in particular impressed the hell out of me. Multiple cast members reading distinctive characters, accompanied orchestral music, and more, all add up to quite the production. And the story itself I actually really enjoyed...until the half way point. The first half, the story of mankind's desperate fight against the Psychlos and the cat-and-mouse between Tyler and Terl, were great. But then that story sort of end half way through and become something else entirely, of which I wasn't so much a fan. It got political in ways that reminded me of Star Wars Ep 1 The Phantom Menace, and it's content that bored me. Due to the amazing production value and really great first half I give 4 stars, but it loses out on the extra star do to the meandering 2nd half that really could have been a second book...if at all.

    Will be returning.

    I really have a hard time getting past the first hour and a half of this book... The opening is quite smart (giving us an original perspective) but then, the action we're waiting for is slow to take place. AND... that stressful music, constantly in the background!! What a pain!! It brings unnecessary anxiety to the listener. The narrator is pretty good, this is why the way he says the ever recurring thought of one of the main characters surprises me ("Leverage! Leverage! Leverage!"): it apparently is the heart of the earliest plot, so we should hear and feel what's at stake. But instead, it's just read as is any other scene description (monotone) and as if the narrator was struggling to utter this word for the first time (EACH time...). I unfortunately quickly grew tired of this book...
