Summary

Fasten your seatbelts. Mission Earth is approaching climax.... And it will rock your world!

Who will control Voltar? What is Earth’s ultimate fate?   

And what is the big mystery?   

The wait is over. Powerful forces are on the move. Entire planets hang in the balance. The moment of truth is finally at hand - and it’s a real blast! In the middle of it all stands Royal Officer of the Fleet Jettero Heller, a man determined to save both Voltar and Earth from extinction.   

Together with an outlaw emperor and an army 100,000 strong, Heller lays siege to Palace City, which has fallen into the depraved and diabolical hands of Lombar Hisst. But the success of Heller’s great adventure is far from a sure thing. For in order to achieve victory, he will not only have to break the laws of Voltar - but defy the laws of physics.  

Here is your ticket to travel beyond the boundaries of space and time. Experience the unfolding mysteries, the violent pleasures, and the biting, inescapable truths you can find only in the final reckoning of The Doomed Planet.

And amazing satire of current day earth

I would highly recommend this audio book to anyone who enjoys political and cultural satire. I would rank this right up there with Gulliver's Travels by Jonathan Swift (although many people mistake it for a children's story rather than cultural satire - the same will likely be true with this book).

I found myself often laughing out loud and nodding my head sadly as Hubbard pokes fun at many of our strange foibles. It is rather remarkable that this book was written so many years ago, as many of the tendencies he points out still manifest themselves today. Most notably, the use of PR and the press have become, if anything, more outrageous than they were 30 years ago. Years after this book made that clear, I watched Michael Jackson hounded literally to death by those very tools.

This is the book for anyone who wants to learn what is really going on in our culture today and can enjoy laughing about it at the same time. If you don't have a good sense of humor, don't bother - you won't get it.

Books better

After reading the books, listening to this abridged version, they don't compare . Too much left out to get the full feel of the story. Read the books see the difference.
