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.
I love a good chaotic adventure with creativity, 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.
Thoroughly engaging throughout the entire book. Whether your gritting your teeth over the heartless nature's on the antagonists, or laughing aloud at the antics of Carl. You will enjoy this book. Masterfully brought to, vivid, life by Mr. Will Wheaton.
My only complaint was that it was too short. I really enjoyed it. I usually read the post apocalyptic type books or fantasy/adventure kind. This was a good change. I'd recommend it.
I picked this book up in a sale. I would've gladly paid the full price!
This has everything I love. it's part science fiction, part adventure, and part courtroom drama. Will Wheaton has done a masterful job of narrating this book.
Note: I haven't read the classic little fuzzy before this
Born a "Boomer". Joined the "Now" generation. Recently realized Now has become Then.
Another world involved in corporate planetary interpersonal & environmental rape humorously presented through an aggressive disbarred attorney's but well thought out battles.

Not every author is lucky enough to have the perfect narrator, but Scalzi is with Wil Wheaton.
No, but I will try others.
Scalzi did write a good story, not to diminish his work, but Wheaton raises the story a notch higher.
It is a modernization of an old book, expertly done by John Scalzi and narrated by Will Wheaton. I never read the original, but I loved this one. Not too long, not too short and very clever and fun, as it is usual from Scalzi. Wheaton also does a great job reading it. So far I haven't found a book wrote or narrated by either that I didn't like. Let's hope it stays that way :)
