Battle Earth is the first of an epic new science fiction trilogy that tells of humanity's desperate struggle to survive against an overwhelming alien invasion. A distress transmission from Mars research colony warns of an advanced and unknown enemy approaching the heavily populated lunar colony. An elite marine unit commanded by Major Mitch Taylor is dispatched to protect the beleaguered civilians. However, the attack is merely a prelude to a massive invasion of Earth. When the vast enemy mothership smashes through the Earth's atmosphere and deploys in the Atlantic, the armed forces of Earth soon realize they are fighting for the very survival of the human race. As cities fall throughout the world, American and European forces rally together to make a stand as they battle an enemy unlike any they've ever encountered. Battle Earth is a futuristic sci-fi action adventure that chronicles vast bloody battles following humanity's first reach into the stars.

Independence Day with ground based warfare
- Mary Karowski
Classic alien invasion updated for the near future
I would. Overall I did enjoy the book. It was very entertaining. It certainly borrowed from some existing sci-fi and invasion tropes, but overall the author weaves an interesting and engaging tale.
I would say it is closest to the film "Independence Day" but some comparisons can be made to the classic "War of the Worlds."
I really enjoyed when the heavy Russian tanks showed up and started really turning the tide of battle.
Yes I thought it would have been a good read for a single sitting. Alas I did not have time for such.
