Description

Winner 2017 APA Audie Awards for Excellence in Marketing
Earphones Award Winner
Best of 2016 Science Fiction Audiobook
In the year AD 3000, Earth is a dystopian wasteland, plundered of its natural resources by the millennium-long regime of taloned, gas-breathing, nine-foot alien conquerors from the planet Psychlo. Fewer than 35,000 humans survive in a handful of communities scattered across the face of a post-apocalyptic Earth.
From a desolate village in the Rocky Mountains near what once was Denver, Colorado, a courageous young man named Jonnie Goodboy Tyler embarks on a hero's journey to challenge the fearful myths of his people.
Enslaved by the sadistic Terl, the Psychlo security chief of Earth, Jonnie and a small band of survivors pit their quest for freedom against Terl's ruthless ambition for personal wealth and power in a rebellion that erupts across the continents of Earth and the cosmic sprawl of the Psychlo empire, with the fate of the world, of mankind, and of the galaxies beyond in the balance.
Superlative quality-a new standard for all audiobooks.
Unlike any other audiobook ever produced. A fully immersive experience, this unabridged audiobook features more than 65 actors including Grammy Award-winning audiobook producer and narrator Stefan Rudnicki.
This state-of-the-art audio engineering has created a wholly cinematic soundtrack with:
471/2 hours of pulse-pounding drama and action professionally recorded with high-definition sound.
A gorgeous cinematic soundtrack with full orchestral compositions and more than 150,000 sound effects.
A cast of more than 65 actors--many of whom are celebrity voices from TV, films, and games--performing 198 characters.
Written with a phenomenal burst of creative energy in a sustained eight-month period in 1980, and first published in October 1982, Battlefield Earth became a breakaway New York Times and international bestseller, hailed as one of the classic science fiction novels.
"This epic sci-fi adventure is breathtaking." --Stefan Rudnicki
"A vivid movie of the mind!" --AudioFile
"Pulse-pounding mile-a-minute sci-fi action adventure that does not stop. It is a masterpiece of popular adventure science-fiction." --Brandon Sanderson

About L Ron Hubbard

With 19 New York Times bestsellers and more than 350 million copies of his works in circulation, L. Ron Hubbard is among the most acclaimed and widely read authors of our time. As a leading light of American Pulp Fiction through the 1930s and '40s, he is further among the most influential authors of the modern age. Indeed, from Ray Bradbury to Stephen King, there is scarcely a master of imaginative tales who has not paid tribute to L. Ron Hubbard. In celebration of his fiftieth anniversary as an author, he again returned to the forefront of popular literature with his monumental epics Battlefield Earth and the ten-volume Mission Earth series. Together, these titles dominated international bestseller lists for 153 weeks, and still remain among the all-time classic works of modern speculative fiction.
