Old story revived and updated. It's as thought provoking now as then I enjoy Scalzi's tributes like this and his Star Trek Red Shirt.
If it's a Scalzi, you know it will be a great listen!
Perfect pairing between author and narrator. Pritchett and Ernest Cline fans will love this book. Great way to spend a Sunday!
Scalzi writes a very compelling tale that shows the transformation of main character, Jack Halloway. Through meeting 'fuzzies' and having realization of his standing with a former romantic relationship Halloway navigates with decisions facing riches, revenge, and redemption. Except for the over use of the word 'said', it's a great book.
With all the charm of a classic science fiction tale, and all the wit of modern story telling, this novel is a lot of fun. The main character, Holloway, is an unethical lawyer with a chip on his shoulder. I love him. I love that the story both condemns him for it and acknowledges that sometimes you need a person like that to take direct action in a corrupt system.
the only issue i had was with the way the dialoge was conducted ..sooo many this guy said and that guy said it gets on one's nerves for sure
the story was enjoyable relatable and wonderful to hear
First book I've read/listened too from John Scalzi, but certainly not the last. While I was only initially drawn to the story, because Wil Wheaton was reading it. It is a fantastic Retelling of an old classic. If you enjoy sci-fi or stories about law then this book is for you. Perfect amount of world building and character development, without overshadowing the power and draw of a good story.
the first book i read by this author i was thrilled thinking that I had found a new favorite author but the more books i have read the more i have become disappointed. I love the snappy dialog but that seems to be all there is to it. So i was hesitant abour buying this book but i didso love rhe orher fuzzy books. this book isn't really about the fuzzies it is about the humans and how clever they are. i won't be buying anorher of his books
Another hit. Scalzi's wit and vision combine beautifully. Wheaton narrates wonderfully. Highly recommended. Buy it now.
Entertaining, enjoyable, humorous..
There were many. Holloway's dog being trained to set off explosives. The heart rending testimony of the sentient being, Papa Fuzzy, about the loss of his loved ones, who were murdered by uncaring humans just for profit.
Holloway. There were many sides to his character and they all had to be there in the reading. They were.
The trial testimony.by Papa Fuzzy.
A well-written story. I recommend it.
