Battlefield Earth audiobook cover art

Weird, overproduced, does not age well

A few elements resonated strongly, like political figures using wars to maintain power. The sci-fi concepts were great but I feel under utilized. The ending feels a little weird, but that pales in comparison to the drawn out soaring music scores between chapters you could probably reduce the book by 1/3 without the music.

I almost wish the whole book had been Perterabo and his early conquests of Olympia... But its a 40k book so they have to shove bolters and power armor in somewhere. the books pacing is perfect. only flaw is I wanted more and it ends very abruptly.

its like Steven kings the stand but half the psychics remove kings narrative skill and added zombies. I would not be surprised if story was inspired by combining random call of duty maps. the main characters internal monologues were written without an understanding of what monologues are for.

its my fault because I forgot these books can't change actual cannon, and without risk or loss the story becomes cotton candy.
