fun and imaginative. even when I knew where the story was going it was a fun ride. well performed. I'll have to look in to others from the author.
John Scalzi is so out of the norm for what i normally read but i stumbled onto his audible book Redshirts and loved it. Agent to the Stars is not quite as good as Redshirts but i really enjoyed it. It is a fun story - nonviolent which is hard to find these days. And i can't say enough about Wil Wheaton. I wonder if i would enjoy these books as much if i had read them versus listening to Wil read them. I think he really adds to the characters through his voice. They are a great combo.
Despite the story telegraphing it's punches at times, I enjoyed it all the way - especially with the exceptional skill that Wil Wheaton brings to the job. I particularly enjoyed his reading of the Chicago newspaper quote (da Bears!). A great listen.
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.
