Don't miss any of the volumes in L. Ron Hubbard's Mission Earth series.

"Ironic, exciting, romantic, and hilarious. [The Invaders Plan] delighted me from the beginning. Remember how you felt the first time you saw Star Wars? This book will do it to you again. (Orson Scott Card)
As with most of L Ron's Science Fiction, this one is amusing. The "science" is about as "real" as that found in Buck Rogers, but the story and characters are fun.
Don't let any preconceptions about outside issues prevent you from enjoying this satiric romp - that goes for the entire Mission Earth series, not just this one book.
I recommend this to people that love Science Fiction and for those that have not tried Science Fiction.
Some parts were very funny and the narrators did well.
Yes...it was easy to listen to and entertaining....
There are so many in this genre
No clear favorite....just the images of the star wars like community and characters I imagined while listening was great.
I normally listen to all my books in one sitting...
Great listen,will surely listen to more in this series...
Hubbard's dekalogy is a slapstick, tickle-in-the-ribs-until-they-faint- from-laughter triumph. This recording mimics the feel of the original story. The abridgers have done a marvelous job of cutting off the fat and leaving the muscle of the story. This is a marvelous romp and a madcap commentary on the human race. Installment 1 happens on an alien planet, but one that is enough like home that the listener will be able to pick up and follow the plot without a problem. If you are looking for wonderful diversion, pick this up. If you are looking for humorous commentary on the human condition, pick this up. If you are looking for serious reflection on the state of the planet, look elsewhere. This is nothing but rib-tickling entertainment.
For some reason I remember reading this whole series of books in Hight School (I did my Senior Thesis paper on Mr. Hubbard) and loving them. Now a little more than a decade later I find the book ok. Could have done without the sound effects. Still a great commentary on our society that is still true today. Get it for a laugh at the human race in general.
