Publisher's Summary

Earth does not exist.... Or so they want you to believe.   

Who are they? What do they want? And who do they think they are?    

They are the Voltarians of Voltar - an empire 110 planets strong.   

They are already among us. And the invasion is about to begin...in a hundred years or so.   

Or is it?   

The truth is far more sinister. Undercover, underground and out of sight, the invaders plan what may in fact be a massive diversion. In the darkest recesses of Voltar’s Coordinated Information Apparatus (otherwise known as the CIA), a tyrant of terror sets out to exploit the invasion in order to seize power. All that stands in his way is a planet that doesn’t exist.    

Discover a world where corporations rule and political corruption is rife. Where governments are driven by oil and controlled by drugs. Where global warming is getting hotter by the minute...and a scorching love affair could determine the fate of millions. Where a cosmic conspiracy is about to hit home and the intergalactic intrigue knows no bounds.   

They call it Blito-P3. We call it Earth.   

You can’t afford to look the other way. It’s the end of the world as you know it...and the beginning of one of the most spectacular, thought-provoking, and wildly inventive works of science fiction and espionage of our time.

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

Critic Reviews

“You will lose sleep. You will miss appointments. If you don’t force yourself to set it down and talk to your family from time to time, you may be looking for a new place to live. Reading The Invaders Plan is simply the most fun you can have by yourself.” (Orson Scott Card) 

“An outrageous and wildly funny read.” (San Francisco Examiner)

overly abridged

This recording is not the whole book. It is overly abridged, important details completely missing. It flows well, but misses character and setting development.

Entertaining

Would you listen to The Invaders Plan again? Why?

This is volume 1 of a 10 volume set (the word 'decology' was coined for this set). I have been trying to read it for years, but for one reason or another only got through volume 3 before something came up. Now that Alexa can read me to sleep, I believe I will make it this time!

Which character – as performed by uncredited – was your favorite?

Soltan Gris, obviously.

Any additional comments?

The series is fantasy, pure and simple. It is not in the class of '2001: A Space Odyssey'; nor is it meant to be. It is simple entertainment.

Mission Earth - The Invaders Plan

Would you listen to The Invaders Plan again? Why?

Yes, of course. I've read the book a number of times over the years and now listening to it has made it even more addictive.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Heller is my favorite character. Nothing can shake him and despite an environment filled with sharks and crocodiles he walks safe, because his purpose is good.

Which scene was your favorite?

Hard to pick one. The whole book is one favorite scene after another.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It intrigued and enthralled me, paralleling this society it's fascinating.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait to listen to the rest of the series.

Rate the Book, Not the Author's Personal Beliefs

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.

Read in the style of the prose...

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.
