If you like your sci fi mix with comedy like the greats Douglas Adams and Robert Asprin then this book is for you. I loved it. I wish I could find more books that can deliver the mix of sci fi and comedy like the greats. I will be listening to his other books now and see how they turned out.
Wil Wheaton did a good job on the reading and making the comedy come across in the way it was intended.
A business professional with a voracious reading habit. My favorites are crime dramas and sci-fi/fantasy, but the occasional romance or history read is great too.
This is one of the best stories I have read on Audible.com. I had never read Little Fuzzy. I can see why H. Beam Piper's family allowed this book to be published.
Jack Holloway, he isn't what you expect.
Wil Wheaton is fantastic!! I am a big fan of his acting and now he just re-enforced my enjoyment of his talents. John Scalzi has done a great job! I am a fan now.
Not wanting to provide any spoilers, but the security tape after the cabin burned down.
If you want a very good story with mild twists and turns, some laughs and heart string pulling, this is the story for you. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the bonus of having the original story makes it just that much better.
This is a great and moving story that will keep you interested all the way through. If you like science fiction and legal thrillers you are going to like this book. While, as a Star Trek fan, I may be biased I think it is also fair to say that Wil Wheaton gives a great performance and an interpretation of characters that really enhances the experience. Great listen!!
It's gotta be this one. I never read John Scalzi before. His sense of humor, sarcasm, optimism, environmentalism just captivated me.....I could not sleep regularly because of this book, I wanted to finish it.
Will Wheaton was a great choice, being Trekkie, I liked Will, but he could do much better job if he were with a little more emotion and animation.....I liked him though.
And, I can't thank you enough John for writing such an entertaining book when my business was falling apart a little. You book certainly kept my optimism and morale high.
I don't give accolades easily, I grew up in early sixties by reading giants like Asimov, Clarke, Pohl, Agatha Christie...We didn't have any TV or any gadgets....
We had only our imaginations.
Myst/thrillers and ✨fun fantasies✨are my favorites but always open for a good story.
It's a fun believable scyFy
Made me laugh.
A great inventive get away. Fantastic Characters.
I am an Australian woman who enjoys reading many different styles of books, from history to sci fi and mystery to poetry. I also love to listen to the same whilst not paying attention to other things. I aim for my reviews to be short and succinct so that they are easy to read.
Will Wheaton does a terrific job of narrating this wonderful story. I could have done without John Scalzi's input though. An engaging story without being too overly taxing on the old brain matter.
I haven't read the original (yet) so, for me, this was its own story.
I love a book which gets literal LOL moments and this one had a few. Of course having cuddly cat-things didn't hurt, either :)
As per my always, Will Wheaton is a fantastic narrator! Quite humorous to hear him refer to & give voice to a particular character, which I will let you discover yourself.
Ok, so the book was good - and the bonus of being able to listen to the original version of the story was just that, a bonus.
But the main purpose of this review is to warn about the character dialog:
As soon as I started listening to this book I remembered why it had been in my wishlist and not in my library.
This book reminded me of another of Scalzi's efforts: "RedShirts" - in which the dialog between characters may drive you to distraction.
"I do" said A.
"What do you do" asked B.
"I do what I want" said A.
"That's not a proper answer" replied B.
The above may be *readable*, but when narrated all of the "he said, she said" stuff gets very old, very quickly.
In the future I may stick to the print/kindle versions of Scalzi's books.
PS: Wil Wheaton, as usual, does an awesome job narrating.
I would listen to Fuzzy Nation again.
If you enjoy Fuzzy Nation you will enjoy Scalzi's Ghost Brigade Books even more!
I actually feel that Scalzi and Wheaton bring the story to life and bring you into the plight of the Fuzzies. I was on the edge of my seat wondering what Holliday would do next!
Fuzzy Nation evoked feelings of joy,exaltation,mirth,anger,suspense,sadness,and good winning over evil.
Nice light listen!
I was hesitant to get this audio book because I read many negative comments on Amazon, but I like Scazi and Wheaton, so for it anyway, and I am glad I did.
The characters are interesting. The main one is insufferable and likeable at the same time.
I have still to finish the original book, but this one stands on its own.
