Agent to the Stars moves quickly and enjoyably. Humorous and at times even a little thought-provoking , this is a great story to pass the time. I will definitely watch for more of this author's work.
Narration was excellent on this story. I have heard a few books books narrated by Mr. Wheaton and he is excellent in all of them. Truth be told that is the reason I got this book. I was waffling when I looked at it but he tipped me in its favour.
The story is a little far fetched but it is clearly supposed to be. There is humour a bit of drama and a lot of interesting characters.
Overall, I will probably listen to it again later on so definitely credit worthy.
Great one liners. Well written and engagingly read. So many laughs that you might miss the fact that the author grapples skillfully and thoughtfully with matters philosophical, sociological, moral, ethical, and the necessity that we embrace history, particularly that of our ancestors, with fear, love, and respect lest we lead shallow, meaningless, self centered lives.
Close Encounters meets Entourage! Scalzi is one of the most accesible sci-fi writers. This is admittedly a bit of a silly tale... but hey... life's short.
Wow, what a ride! Who wouldn't want that made to film or tv series? Wil Wheaton, you absolutely nailed it! I know it's work, but you confirmed the cliché. You would be my vote for Tom, no, Joshua, no, I'm so confused. Felicia Day for Michelle? I would like to say I can't remember last time I had so much fun, but Hardluck Hank books, Marko Kloos' Terms of Enlistment and sequels, Pierce Brown's Red Rising, and sequels, etc. Audible, you are awesome!!! Better than breakfast.

Really kept me engaged and Mr. Wheaton does a wonderful job as a narrator. The story did drag a little near the end, but it was still quite entertaining.
This is the first John Scalzi I've ever read but it certainly won't be the last. I very much enjoyed Wil Wheaton as the narrator as well. I was very sad and somewhat grumpy that the book ended- it was that good.
