Kurzbeschreibung

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.

“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

Synopsis

A novel rooted in todays clandestine worlds of intelligence, drug smuggling and government corruption.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Satirical masterpiece YEARS ahead of it's time... 6. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
First of all, don't let any silly people with no sense of humor (or reality, for that matter) tell you that this is a bad book, or Mission Earth a bad series. It is a masterful prelude to just about THE largest science fiction series of all time (called a "dekalogy" because it spans ten volumes!). Written almost an entire decade before X-Files-ish subjects of alien/government conspiracies found their way into popular culture, Mission Earth satirizes an alien invasion of earth.
It all begins on the planet Voltar, where the Voltarian government, with plans on coming to earth to make it part of it's vast, pangalactic empire is holding a conference on what to do about our little planet. It seems there is a problem with earth. It is poisoning itself with pollution. It's technology level is at a ridiculously primitive low. It's future is guided by madmen with wet dreams of atomic self-annihilation. It will destroy itself within years, making it a useless ball of nuclear ash, ruining centuries of planning and invasion preperations. Something must be done. And soon. Like now.
Enter Jettero Heller, Royal Engineer extraordinaire. Jet's job is to go to earth and clean the place up, to keep it from destroying itself and make it ready for invasion. An easy job if there ever was one; one that Voltar has performed many times on many planets prior to invasion.
Unfortunately for Voltar and for earth, there are those who like earth the miserable way it is, thank you very much. There are those who make personal profit and gain from the sad state this lovely planet is in and will do all in their power to keep it that way.
Enter the Controlled Information Apparatus (C.I.A.

I am one of those people who love to read good science fiction and that is what the mess known as "Mission Earth" is not--good science fiction. While the basic plot is OK, Hubbard's use of "satire" is so poor that one begins to root for the psychologists and the psychiatrists that are being lambasted without rhyme or reason. Many of the ideas that appear in the book are on Scientology's hit list and, as in many of his writings, are attacked without being given a chance to tell their side of the story. But this is not the book's (and the series') basic flaw. Hubbard keeps repeating line and words to the point that if a reader would take out a word (say, for example, "riff raff") the book would deflate by half. (The same holds true when Soltan meets the Russian agent later on in the series--the repetition gets so loaded that the story bogs down so that it barely moves. Finally, even in bad satire (and we have one here) a hero cannot be as good as Jettero Heller--readers need heroes and villains they can believe in--both Gris and Heller are so far off the mark that I cannot belive in them. Although Bridge Publications claim that this is the largest series ever written, size does not matter--quality does--and that is what "Mission Earth" lacks--quality in the writing. In so doing, I cannot accept that these books are the best SF written. Readers looking for good, epic space opera and adventure by a true talent can find what they crave in E.E. "Doc" Smith's "Lensman" or "Skylark" series.

If I was still in high school, I probably would have really enjoyed this series and probably overlooked the many holes in Hubbard's writing. In writing a dekalogy (a 10 book series) he had the option to follow in the footsteps of such greats as C.S. Lewis (The Chronicles of Narnia), and especially Frank Herbert (Dune). But instead of spanning the galaxy and thousands of years, he zones in on a character that's basically a secretary and a bumbling one at that. Among the disconcerting lack of details that would make the story truly work, is the fact that everyone in the book seems to eat mostly sweetrolls and soda, with the occasional beer (he did go as far as to create terms for them in the context, "sparklewater" and such). So basically what you have here is a shining opportunity to get really in depth and create a story with the scope of a thousand worlds and the fate of the galaxy. What you actually get is a private window on a bumbling cartoon character who munches on sweet rolls and generally interperets things poorly. It's amusing, but not what I'd call a page turner. But don't let me knock the series too much. My advice is to invest carefully. No sense buying ten books you hate. Just get the first one and see how it sits with you, and may it sit better with you than with me. - Jon Dayon

That's how the "Encyclopedia of Science Fiction" described this lumbering, nearly unreadable mass of words...and this description is sorely accurate. The so-called "satire" is a thinly disgused commercial for Scientology, as Hubbard plunges us into a world where super-hero Jettero Heller has to save the Earth, and ultimately the entire galaxy, from a devious plot to take over the Galactic Empire. What is this plot? Why, a massive conspiracy to use drugs, psychology, and psychiatry to enslave the population...which just happens to be exactly what Scientology is raving about. The "satirical" world presented in this series is frighteningly close to the way Scientologists are taught to look at the REAL world, which does a lot to explain the fear and paranoia gripping the organization. I pity the poor souls deluded by Scientology...but as for Hubbard's "satirical" look at the world, I can certainly see why Scientology embarked in a massive campaign to buy huge quantities of these books in order to propel them onto the best-seller lists. That's the only way they could ever survive this long, without being forgotten as poorly-written pulp fiction from an author whose limelight faded decades ago.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I finished this series, but only out of morbid curiosity.
There is little I can add to the discussion of this series. The reviews seem to fall into two lines--people who have read good science fiction, and people who haven't. Lesen Sie weiter...

Back to the review, extremely well-written. Hubbard's 'Invaders' never struggles for its next scene or plot. It flows smoothly throughout the entire novel. Lesen Sie weiter...
