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.
What a creative story. Some writers are scripted to the point where the reader is constantly seeing what is coming next. But Scalzi is not one of those. He constantly keeps us guessing.
Wil Wheaton did a great job bringing Android's Dream to life and keeping the listener engaged.
It left me wanting more from Harry, Robin and Brian. Hope the story is not over.
Interesting story and concept read by a great narrator. There is however too much "he said", "she said" which can be highly annoying and in my opinion an indication of a lazy writer. I considered abandoning the book but decided to power through and try to ignore it. Once I got that right, I thoroughly enjoyed the book,
I quite enjoyed this story. It's a bit predictable at times, but it was very amusing.
I found Wil Wheaton's reading to be excellent. His performance kept me in the story at times my attention might have wandered if I had been reading myself.
Not a reader, but a fantastic listener!
if you like a cascade of things happening from a fart. Then this is for you.
The only thing that moved was my jaw. Otherwise I was firmly planted in my chair for most of the book.
Read it. It's worth the time.
Another delight from John Scalzi. A low level state employee gets involved in a case that will leave little hope for a resolution that will leave the Earth independent and at peace. the story has adventure and humor and introduces a religion with a great origin story. Check out Fuzzy Nation and Locked In for your next Scalzi read. Wil Wheaton was a great narrator. His work here and in Ready Player One and Armada are outstanding performances.
