An evaluation of writer's works is always subjective. Nevertheless, it would be interesting to know what people think about LRH fiction novels and nonfiction books. I liked the first 100 pages of Volume I of Mission Earth because it describes the life in a totalitarian society. But then I lost interest because the novel kind of stalls with endless variations of the same themes and totally unrealistic scenarios involving large-than-life protagonist, Jettero Heller (Travolta's late son, Jettero, was named after this character). Overall, I give the book a solid C. Hubbard's screenplay, Revolt in the Stars, is partially based on the OT III data. It is hard to grade a book or a screenplay based on its synopsis. But the story seems very promising to me: it has an evil galactic ruler, Xenu, love story of the leader of Loyal Officers, Rawl, and Xenu's former concubine, Lady Min. The silly thetan idea is nowhere to be found; instead the screenplay ends with Xenu being put in artificially induced coma and kept on life support. I'm sure that a movie based on this screenplay would have been a success. Large portions of Hubbard's nonfiction book, Excalibur, could be found on the Internet. The book consists of two parts: Part I is Hubbard's version of the evolution theory, Part II is social implications of this very strange theory of evolution. The theory is weird, to say the least -- it says nothing about beneficial mutations and natural selection. Any scientist would say that this is a crappy description of the evolution that never took place. I give the book an F Majority of Hubbard's fiction works are fantasy novels; I haven't read any of them. The estimates range from "excellent and spellbinding" to "total failure" .
