If you've never listened to Wil Wheaton you are missing out on something great. He is one of, if not the best male narrator on audible.
Agent to the stars is a fun listen. Pure entertainment for the ears. Alien species invaded Hollywood...who knows maybe it's not that far fetched. Regardless it's an enjoyable read.
An nice imagination vacation. Enjoy a clever view on humanities shouts to the universe and what they bring to our doorstep.
its smelly, sarcastic. and alot like your uncle Joe.
How do you get people to accept nice aliens that come to earth? Get them an agent!
The story was great and Wil Wheaton made it excellent! I'll definitely give it a second listen.
I've read several of Scalzi's books, this is one of the better ones. Interesting premise, not cliche, unique perspective. A couple of deus ex machina events that were telegraphed a bit too easily, but overall a fun and enjoyable read.
Apparently there's a requirement that any book that references Star Trek in any way must be read by Wil Wheaton. I'm 100% on-board with that policy. He has a very engaging presence and pretty much nails any sarcastic nuance that the stories have.
Scalzi's has zoomed to the top in my list of favorite authors. This one starts interesting, and only gets better. Don't miss this book, and if you haven't read, or listened to Lock in, and also the entire Old man's War series, don't deprive yourself any longer. You, too, will understand why Scalzi's has piqued my interest. Happy reads.....
This was a fun listen, Wheaton does a great job narrating and in fact I purchased this in part due to his performance on Ready Player One. Overall it is an original and entertaining listen, however it's not as humorous or madcap as the description implied. in fact it could be considered a philosophical work in places. Still a good and a bit offbeat light sci-fi.
I enjoyed the first part of this book, I was sure that as it went on, my enjoyment would elevate. However, the plot and characters turn from believable in a weird way, to contrived and ironically superficial. Definitely give credit to the author for the uniqueness of the story. But, I think it was slightly off in execution. Good performance from Wil Wheaton of course. I've heard him better though, so I couldn't give him a 5.
This was my first Will Wheaton narration and he did an awesome job bringing this totally crazy and hilariously creative story to life. One of those that you never wanted to end. Thankful to audible for introducing me to Scalzi!
Agent to the Stars is funny and sweet, full of likable characters, and age-old questions: what IS life?...what does it mean to be human?...what exactly makes us human?...how much STINK can the human olfactory system tolerate?
I really enjoyed the basic 'goodness' of the characters, the story was clever and we'll written, and Wil Wheaton's narration was spot on!
...by which I don't mean to denigrate the story or Mr Wheaton's performance. Instead, I mean that this audiobook was a fun, pleasurable romp through a modern sci-fi story from a modern master mix maker of the genre with a narration that was an excellent performance. This was a great time and I highly recommend it to anyone who has discovered similar books (Divine Misfortune, Emperor Mollusk, etc. )
