i think the performance by Wil Wheaton has made the listening so much entertaining and funny.
excellent as always.
this book was very entertaining with great voices for each character, quick, snarky humor, and imaginative plot line. highly recommend it to those who like sarcasm and Sci fi.
the author uses God d***it way too much. there are better ways to express the intent without deliberately offending Christians by taking The Lord's name in vane. I would have give 5/stars if not for this fact.
yes, I never guessed where any of this book was going. so NEW. great.
sheep, what is a sheep lol
the sheep, has to be the sheep. I mean really, it just has to be.
the whole thing just GLOB SMACKED me. love this book.
MORE PLEASE, I will be rereading this one a time or two. thanks.
Everything. He's Great.
It was Hard to rate this book. The Story was really good and well told. The performance was great! The Problem is that the author needs to study how to write dialogue. He uses
"(Character Name) said"
after every single line of dialogue. Horrible craft. It makes the book really, Really hard to listen to. It's a damn shame too. The poorly handled dialogue takes away from what, otherwise, is a funny, interesting, adventurous tale that keeps you turning pages.
You know that crazy lady in "Misery" by Stephen King that finds her favorite author and kidnaps him and forces him to write a book for her? I want to do that with John Scalzi and Wil Wheaton. I'm not sure which one of them I can't get enough of, but I need MORE. MORE awesome books, MORE perfect narrating....MORE, MORE, MORE.
I really have enjoyed John Scalzi's stories. This one is another enjoyable one off that is humorous and enjoyable. Wil Wheaton also does an excellent job with the narration as he has in other Scalzi novels.
The sheer audacity in this along with some of the set ups and punch lines makes this a book you wish was a series. do not miss this ine
As Always Wil Wheaton does a great job of giving life to this book. in the book reminds me of 5th element in a lot of ways. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
Faulkner, zombies, pandemics, Hillary Mantel, Linda Barry, Atwood, time travel, and Karr, I'm all over the map.
This is a great story of aliens, power struggles, religious beliefs and genetic mischief. It reminds me of The Hitchhiker's Guide. Very funny and lots of fun.
I can't wait to read more by Scalzi.
