I love to read. Always have. The life of a professional is too busy to do just one thing so I find audiobooks are the answer to my love of books and a busy life.
I really liked how the characters were portrayed and how the differences and conflicts between them drove the story. The Fuzzies and Carl were awesome!
It is also interesting to compare this book with the original by H Beam Piper; to see how societies' awareness of environmental impact has changed over the last 50 or so years. Jack Holloway is a very interesting and complex character.
System and software engineer from the UK now living and working in Silicon Valley.
Does it really improve matters to refresh a classic story? Did remaking The Poseidon Adventure a few times result in anything better than the first.
I hadn't read the original, but it is one of my wife's favorites. For me this was a nice enough though kind of obvious story. For her it was a grating clash with the original. If you know the original cover versions seldom sit well.
Engineer with a strange attraction to philosophy.
The narrator is excellent and the story very compelling. I found myself listening to it almost in its entirety from start to finish. But the title gave me a reason to be skeptical ar first. It drew me almost from the beginning and I found myself wanting to listen even though I probably should have been doing other things. It is a very entertaining story and well worth your time.
I found this book while looking for others narrated by Wheaton after I listened to him narrate Ready Player One. I admit that the title, picture and synopsis made me very hesitant. It seemed too cute to be interesting. But the good reviews told me to give it a chance and I'm glad I did. It is classic old school sci fi brought into the 21 at century. Listening to this book was a joy. I literally laughed and cried my way through it.
A very fast paced story, keeps you engaged. It is written very much like a courtroom drama but in a science fiction setting.
The performance by narrator is excellent.
looking for a short, but excellent story? buy this book! Wheaton doors an excellent job narrating this book (as he always does). The story sucks you in and immerses you in the fuzzy nation.
