The aliens are really fun and interesting. The characters are not that well developed but still good fun but the main character who had very unclear motives does not get satisfactorily explained at feel a bit flat at the end. Still it was a good story will work the time.
This was such a satisfying story, the type where you never want it to end but you know that it is good because of that pesky quality over quantity axiom. 10/10. Would listen again.
I read from almost every genre but I do love a good science fiction. When not listening I'm camping with my Girl Scouts, baking or at work.
Do we as Earthlings have a plan for finding worlds with sentient beings? Do we?
This is the first book I have read by John and got the biggest kick out of it. I am recommending it to everyone. I also love that Wil Wheaton is narrating it. He did great. I am looking forward to more. Thanks
I have read and listened to H. Beam Piper's original Little Fuzzy several times in the past, good work on this rendition. There are significant differences between the story lines but the central core remains true to both. This version was a very enjoyable listen.
Much lighter and shorter than Scalzi's usual work. A clear and affectionate labor of love, and that affection shows in the tone and story. Excellent narrator. A dog gets to blow stuff up and hangs with sentient cats. What more could you ask?
Books and more books....I hardly listen to music anymore.
Soooo, I saw this book come up in my recommendations for over a year now. I read the synopsis and for whatever reason I just kept passing on it. Recently just finished the "Old Man's War" series and Redshirts and wanted to get another Scalzi book, hopefully narrated by Mr. Wheaton. This was the only one I haven't read so I bit the bullet, if you will. This was a great story! Even though it was based on a previous work, I really, really enjoyed it. It was funny, exciting, and kept me listening for hours at a time. As always, Wil was phenomenal. Thank you, John S. and Wil W.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Right from the start this book pulls you in and has you laughing and knowing that Jack is a rebel with just the right amount of heart (I kept picturing Malcom from Firefly). I had this in my library for some time, I bought it on sale and haven't read it because the name sounds stupid. But now I'm kicking myself for waiting so long because it was awesome. I laughed my butt off and I cried at work, my co-workers kept asking me what was wrong, allergies of course. Anybody who enjoys a good animal/creature story and sci-fi this is a nice blend of both. But not so much sci-fi that anybody can read this book whether they like it or not. I love how the fuzzy teased Carl the dog, it had me in stitches. I have not read the original book Little Fuzzies, and in no way do you need to read that book first or even at all to enjoy this story. Will Wheaton is an excellent narrator, I defiantly will listen to any of his work again.
Excellent story. Excellent performance. It is as though Mr. Scalzi wrote the dialogue specifically for Mr. Wheaton's unique style. Well done and thank you.
