    One thought on “The Enemy Within”

    1. Great read Although the title suggests an unnerving, almost sinister plot, the author's pragmatic use of detail and effortless blend of post-modern colloquialism brings a rather homey, sympathetic view of alien domination to the reader.

    2. Take all ten of these books and boil 'em down all night no, leave it on the burner for a whole week. Reduce it too a thick dense sticky sauce. And still, this will have very little flavour.There was the seed of a decent parody in there within the first two books then the joke was over. The joke became, "let's make it ten books, just so we could call it a "dekalogy".

    3. Hubbard has a big problem with psychiatrists31 March 2012 When we are dealing with a series of ten novels, particularly a series that was read so long ago, the entire series seems to morph into a single book that I can vaguely remember. Some people seemed to have liked these books but most of the readers that have commented on them have indicated otherwise. I have never really been a big fan of such long running series, though the only other one I read was The Wheel of Time, which I gave up on o [...]

    4. The Mission Earth series is a big, bloated, fun and funny dekalogy* of pulp and satire and non-stop action. It's not a serious work, nor was it intended to be; I believe Hubbard wrote it simply out of fondness for the field, the way it was when he was beginning his career. He surely didn't need the money. It lampoons everything from economics to law enforcement to crime to space opera to science and all stops in between. It's not a particularly well-written work of literature, but is engaging an [...]

    5. Our savior comes from VoltarSplit in ten volumes for editorial (and practical) reasons, the Mission Earth series can be seen as a continuous narrative whose chapters are identified by the different books. This “space opera-ish” saga (not a lot of space travels, but alien technological gizmos are everywhere!) will follow the comically clumsy actions of corrupted voltarian agent Soltan Gris as he narrates his attempts to sabotage and destroy the brave Jettero Heller, another native from planet [...]

    6. Good but not the best one I've read yetthis is the third book in the mission earth series so I can't comment on the ins and outs of all the story but this book in particular was pretty slow but there are seven books after it so I figured I was bound to run into a couple slow ones I didn't like this one as much as the first but I did however like it better than the second and although people are complaining about the drawn out utanc character I actually enjoyed these parts because obviously there [...]

    7. I read this series several years ago with a friend. It was a daunting task at 10 books but we were determined. It's not the usual sort of series I read but I had heard a lot about it and had some highschool friends who loved it. It's tough to review just one book in the series because the full story is told in all 10 books. You have to read all 10 to find out what happens. Certainly some of the books were better than others, more exciting and adventurous, but its rare that a 10 book series doesn [...]

    8. Absolute drivel. I am wondering if I can be bothered to go write this on all the books of the series that I actually managed to slog through, and I might. Been reading sci-fi since I remember myself and almost never have I dropped a book halfway through. I really tried with this "epic" series, really did. On book 4 now and have decided that there is no way I am devoting another precious minute of my life to this.The story has something in it, but there are so many unnecessary twists and turns, t [...]

    9. While not as totally horrible as the Battlefield Earth book these aren't that great. There are some good plots themes and a sorta pulpish feel to the characters, but overall it seems to fall short of what it could be. The story seems to ramble and could have been cut by 1/3 and still got the point across. The random sex and sadistic events just seem to be placed in there not for storyline but for shock value. Not recommended

    10. My first Mission Earth Galaxy Press published book. Just like the previous two, I didn't really enjoyed reading it but I still wanted to know how the story will go. The hero in the story was becoming more and more cooler and he still needs to encounter a bunch of hardships while the story goes. There are still lots of boring scenarios just for the sake of making the flow of the story long.

    11. I read this entire series when I was ~12. Even then I knew it was sexist and uncomfortably white though I could not articulate the source of my unease. I was going to give it the benefit of a doubt and reread it as a 44 year old adult; however, I just finished trying to read Battlefield Earth, and I think I'm just going to trust my original judgement.

    12. Not to knock L Ron because I absolutely loved but this one was definitely not my cup of tea. I didn't find it funny in the least and I think that was what it was trying to be. It failed and I quit the series.

    13. I bought this series of books because I wanted to read something longer, not just a single book. The sci-fi genre, and the book description got my attention, so there I was, taking all the books in the series home, and quite frankly not liking it too much. It was okay, but this was one of the rare purchases that I regretted.

    14. I wanted to read this book so badly I checked it out of the library. I laughed several times throughout this book while my wife was watching a DVD. A very good story and extremely funny. I enjoyed this book a lot. =)

    15. one of the few books I have never finished. I not only didn't finish it; I *threw* it away! Into the trash dumpster! I've never done that before or since!

    16. I read these in high school and found them compelling, but as I reflect on them, I recall them being rather stupid, oversexed, and pointless.

    17. A crazy pulp novel, clearly written just to tell a story and get paid by the word; though not as crazy or pulpish as Scientology.
