I am becoming a huge Scalzi fan. His writing certainly encompasses zeitgeist of my generation (I'm in my late thirties) and the 21st century. The Old Man's War series and his other writings (Redshirts, Metatropolis et al.) have definitely captured my interest and imagination. His characters are fleshed out, human beings (and other races) with a mix of positive and negative traits that make them seem like real people, not just story characters advancing a plot line. Wheaton performs admirably in this narration. In short, my only wish was for a longer story because I enjoyed it so much.
I wanted so badly to finish reading this book because I loved it so much. But I had a hard time staying awake (with any book). Wil Wheaton did an awesome job and I found more great books just because I enjoy his narration so much.
Fuzzy Nation is not your typical science fiction novel. I gave it 4 stars because I do think it requires a specific type of audience. If you take yourself too seriously you most likely won't enjoy this one. It's fun and brings out the "kid" in you.
Little fuzzy of course! And I was so surprized at the ending. Wow... totally did not expect that.
The main guy. But I love Wil's narration. He's extremely talented and it shows in his many voice tons, pace, and inflections.
I can't do that with any book. But this is a good one to listen to a few hours at a time.
So happy they picked Wil to narrate. This would have gone flat without someone like Wheaton's talent to pull it off. It's not that the story isn't worthy on it's own merits to be read or listened to... but it's the type of story that would not do well without the right narrator.
I loved this Story Very Much & Wil Wheaton did a Great NARRATION & with alot emotion too !!!
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.
