Wil Weaton's narration is fast-paced and compelling, and draws you in. Rarely do I cry while listening to an audio book, but John Scalzi's story of the Fuzzy's struggles to be recognized as sapient beings will tug at your heartstrings.
This is a fantastic modernization of a science fiction classic. It has a well-written story line full of interesting and relatable characters. Will Wheaton was the absolute perfect choice for a narrator! No matter how many times I listen to it he still has me enthralled, searching for the good heart under Jack Holloway's crusty and sarcastic exterior. The pacing also works well in audiobook format. The plot is fast enough to keep you interested but has enough detail to keep you immersed in the world. This is one of my favorite audiobooks and I highly recommend it!
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
A great look at what do we value, and what do we use to determine senescence. Hoses and power grids are not necessary for civilization of intelligence.
Overall a witty, satirical and satisfying listen
all of them. ( I don't do plot spoilers in my reviews--don't read them either)
Having read the original years ago, yeah I'm old, the intro let me know this was something updated
Good investment of credits or money.
At the heart of Fuzzy Nation is a great story. The fact that it was told with great humor is just icing on the cake.
I don't know if it was jut one moment, but I really enjoyed Holloway's grudging realization that he was dealing with sentient beings.
Will did a really great job of capturing Holloway's cocky attitude.
Something Fuzzy this way comes.
Sweet, fun and engaging
It grabbed me right away and I was hooked. Could not stop listining and found myself looking for opportunities to be alone and listen to my book.
Will whaton does a great jon reading scalzi. I have enjoyed his reding in a couple of books. Does a great job with one particlular voice. Thats all i'll say. No spoiler here.
If I could have done that yes. Very addicting.
I love scalzi's style. Just finished "Locked In" before reading Fuzzy Nation. I think he is my new favorite author.
I absolutely loved this book. It made me laugh, cry, cheer...and so on. Wil Wheaton, as usual, was a superb narrator and John Scalzi's re-imagining of this story was fantastic.
I enjoyed this more than anything I've listened to recently. From others reviews I learned that the courtroom scenes were added during the rewrite. That was a great addition. The length was just right. Not rushed but no unnecessary filler.
Wil Wheaton's narration was excellent even though I tend to prefer professional narrators over actors.
Over a number of his books, Scalzi has become one of my favorite authors. Fuzzy Nation is a big part of why. This tale, combined with the fantastic narration by Wil Wheaton, is an emotionally charged expression of how damaging greed can be.
