Wil Wheaton does a great job with this story although sometimes the voices of each character are not as distinct as they could be especially near the end. However 5 stars all-around. Scalzi has a great imagination and fun sense of humor.
I stopped listening after about 2 hours in. Left the book alone for 2 months cause I just wasn't in to it. Came back because I was bored. At 2.1 hours in, the hooks set and I was intrigued. Finished the rest in 2 days. Awesome book. Don't know why I doubted it for a second. Scalzi and Weston: win every time. Get it!
This is a complex and fun tale with a series of strange twists. Scalzi is quickly becoming one of the rising stars of SciFi and there is a reason. Well worth a listen.
Quirky Fun Adventure
Some of the "buddy" books out there. The characters Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser by Fritz Lieber or more recently Michael J. Sullivan's Ryria Chronicles with Hadrian and Royce
No, I liked breaking this up over a few days. It was a great way to decompress.
A great Scalzi with his typical blend of humour and high stakes. Wheaton does an amazing job with the characters bringing to life some strange aliens.
Hysterically funny! Witty dialogue, lot's of space opera situations, and great narration.
I can't add much to what other reviewers have already said. I'll just add that this is a must read (um... listen)!
I bought this book thinking I'd bought "Do a Androids Dream of Electric Sheep", the novel that inspired the film Blade Runner. It didn't take long to realise my error but I was too far gone into the book to care. I am glad I made that mistake otherwise I may never have read this really interesting interplanetary action story with funny characters. I throughly recommend it.
I'm not sure. Scalzi's other books are okay, but not stunning literature. This book doesn't have much going for it, imho.
It was not humorous or interesting.
Good reading, but couldn't raise the quality of the story.
