  • I'm almost half serious about this one.

    I read this when I was 10 or 12 or something, and I remember that it absolutely kicked ass. And it probably inoculated me against Scientology too, since I remember thinking "Um... the dude that wrote that started a religion? WTF kind of stupid idiot would you need to be to fall for that".

    That said, I went back and tried to reread it in my 20s and though it was horribly horribly cheesy and not very well written. All the simplicity and unsophisticated that made it very readable when I was 10 made it terrible when I was adult.

    So I'd recommend Battlefield Earth... but only in the "Children's Science Fiction" section :)

    And of course, all the rest of his work is far more evil than a simplistic children's space opera.
    • Yeah, I read it at about the same age and loved it. Tried it again maybe five years later, and, well, *cringe*.
    • Johnny Goodboy Tyler. Pretty much says it all. I couldn't even get over the name when I read it as a kid. But yeah, I did like the story.
