As good an update as I Robot. More of the old stories should be upated
One audio book I was easily able to listen through to the end. A lot of good lawyering dialogue. Will Wheaton came through with an engaging reading as usual. The story us both amusing and touching.
What can I say that I haven't already said in previous reviews? Wil Wheaton is an incredible narrator. Couple this with the genius of John Scalzi and you have a dynamic duo that couldn't be better suited for their works than super hero. These two are legends, and Fuzzy Nation is on another level of awesome. Do yourself a favor and listen to this book. I went into it not knowing what I was getting into, but I was involved and engaged the entire time.
I am becoming a real fan of Scalzi. After reading a Star Trek story of mine, a friend recommended that I should read Red Shirts. Naturally, I loved it. And I loved Will Wheaton reading it. Now I am listening to more Scalzi, and loving every one of them, so far. And I love that Will Wheaton reads them. Truly enjoyable.
I really enjoyed the main character and how he is full of himself but he completely backs it up with the outstanding ability to be a few steps ahead of everyone.
Loves a good adventure with heart and lots of laughs.
A cute, thoughtful, funny and sometimes sad little science fiction story about a greedy corporate society trying to forcefully steamroll over a cute alien species' rights as sentient being in order to make money. Told from the perspective of Jack, a rebellious and irresponsible contractor, who discovers the new sentient species he calls the fuzzies. Jack and a small group of people suddenly find themselves entangled in a legal web that they must navigate through to prove that the fuzzies are sentient enough to have rights. The company will try to conceal the evidence by any means necessary.
For those who don't know what to expect, "Fuzzy Nation" is actually more of a courtroom drama more than anything else. This story has plenty of humor written in typical satirical John Scalzi fashion with Wil Wheaton's narration bringing out and highlighting manipulative nature of the main character. It's also a well told but worn and simple plot to highlight themes of environmental abuse and the abuse of human rights. Great book told listen to, but don't expect to bend your mind around new concepts that no one as seen done before.
Highly recommended for fans who enjoy a good courtroom drama with a big helping of humor and a science fiction setting.
