The reboot of this story was superb as well as Wil Wheatons performance. John Scalzi has become my absolute favorite author. His character development and storylines pull you in right off the jump. Then keep you there. Will Wheaton does an amazing read. I am always looking for any audiobook that he performs. This is my first and most likely only review but if you are watching reviews, know this. It is my opinion that if you pick this or any other Scalzi/Wheaton audiobook or a John Scalzi physical/downloaded book, you too will be a fan. I only purchase hardcover books I love and will read again. Among those purchases are every Scalzi story I have read or listened to. Hope this helps, I know it wasn't that specific, but Fuzzy Nation is now on my small but beloved bookcase.
Decided to write a small review after my second listen. This is a fantastic story. Typical Scalzi humor keeps you laughing though out the whole book and Will really does a great job narrating (as usual). I actually bought this one in print and passed it around my group of friends and everyone loved it. Definitely give this one a listen. It's in my top 5 favorites from audible.
As a truck driver I'll listen to many books. If I catch myself daydreaming and have to rewind a few pages or chapters I realize the story or reader is not keeping my attention. Fuzzy Nation kept me going for hundreds of miles. The story is good and the reader (Wil Wheaton) did an excellent job keeping me absorbed playing the characters.
If you like this book and it's oddball humor, I think you'll 'Agent to the Stars' & 'Androids Dream'
I prefer listening to audiobooks more than music.
“Sometimes in life you’re going to win and sometimes you’re going to lose. But just because you lose doesn’t mean the other guy needs to win.”
I loved this book, especially all the court-lawyer stuff. Don't judge me, but I found Jack Holloway to be pretty awesome!
This book, kind of sends a strong message about saving planets while being interesting and humorous and emotional.
John Scalzi mentions in the very beginning of the audio book that by the end you'll understand whyWil Wheaton narrates the book, personally I think his narration was awesome BUT he was a bit too fast for me.
Little Fuzzy by H. Beam Piper was one of the books I read as a child that began my life-long love affair with Science Fiction. This book pushed all of the same buttons and gave me the same "warm and fuzzy" feelings. Wil Wheaton was an excellent choice of Narrator. Note: this is my first John Scalzi book. Next up
Is Old Man's War.
I was hooked in a flash. Scalia created wonderful complications and great visual impressions. Wheaton acted the parts exquisitely, capturing the requisite snark, timing, and tone. I loved it.
I'm not huge into sci fi but seeing that Wil Wheaton narrated this book I thought I'd give it a try. I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I liked this story and Wil did an excellent job with telling the story. I have been trying to see if Wil will do another book that I might like. I could listen to him read anything.
The story had a lot more promise to it in regards to the Fuzzies, but the story kept going back to the the main character.
The main thing that bothered me the most was, that for being so far in the future, I don't understand the reason that the author felt the need to blaspheme the name of Jesus Christ.
Evolution is mentioned in this book a lot but was easy to overlook for the fun nature of the story. Nevertheless, intervention by an intelligent being to protect a new species from a more advanced predator contradicts the very premise the the un-theory of Evolution. Essentially, it was empty filler to had to the total word count.
