Like many people, I watched the movie adaption of this. The book originally came out before my time. The movie...it sucked. But doesn't every book to movie adaption suck in a way? No matter what, details are left out. The book ties it all together and is a good read for sci-fi fans.
I found the book to be action packed and a crazy alternate reality, that some people, like the Scientology inventor believe could really happen or did happen. I don't know about all that, but I enjoyed the read.
Head on over and find out more about the book at the website, you can also find it on Amazon. www.battlefieldearth.com I received this product at a discount in exchange for my honest opinion.
