Narration is perfect, the story is great, and the writing is upbeat and witty. This was a fun book and kept me up all night through to the finish (I'll suffer today at work but it was worth it).
was fun from beginning to end mainly because it's so true would say more but don't want to give more away than the summary does I'll just say I absolutely loved it and the narrator was perfect and have loved him in other audible book I've listen to
Reading and listening to books is a way of life for me I love to get out of my world and immerse myself in something new
Thoroughly entertaining and creative listen. I encourage you to take a chance and just enjoy this story.
If you like Carl Hiaasen's "Bad Monkey," this book is for you. If you also like John Scalzi's "Old Man's War" series then put "Agent to the Stars" at the top of your must-read list.
This is not usually the genre that I read so I took a chance based on previous reviews and was pleasantly surprised! One of my favourite reads in many years.
Avid reader. Even more avid listener. I enjoy thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, non-fiction .... just about everything.
Scalzi's writing is geared toward long-time readers of science fiction, so there are quite a few meta in-jokes and references; but even with that said, I think even the most casual of SF readers will enjoy this story of an alien race using a Hollywood talent agent as their "mouthpiece" for humanity.
The humor and the easy flow of the narrative.
Wheaton is the perfect choice to read all of Scalzi's work. He's a nerd's nerd and his love of the subject matter shines through in his performance.
Yes, but it's a little long to do so.
This is not a space opera, Star Wars-style action novel. It's intelligent, funny, sometimes moving story set in contemporary Los Angeles (just with aliens).
Loved this book. Loved the performance. The story had enough depth to be interesting as well as not boring. Good listen for long car rides.
The story involves aliens trying to integrate with humans. In a sense it's a little comic booky.

This was a truly enjoyable listen, an experience more than the sum of its parts.
I rate 5 (Loved it!) 4 (Really liked it!) 3 (Liked it!) 2 (Didn't really like it!) 1 (Hated it!) I never rate a book before I finish it!
I honestly laughed out loud at least 8 times!! The story was great and there is no better narrater than Wil Wheaton. Thank you for the wonderful experience!!
