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.
I am a working mom who loves to squeeze in listening to books while walking, doing chores or commuting.
Fuzzy Nation was enjoyable to listen to while I did my chores. It wasn't too complicated. I did not try to follow all the corporate legal rumblings, rather just enjoyed the story.
It would be a spoiler to say, but there were a few moments in the story that were touching.
The scenes changed frequently in the story and I just enjoyed the dynamic flow. I am not a science fiction reader, but this one had a nice story to accompany the "out of this world" setting.
A cute, fun story. Not too heavy.
What do you even say about yourself on an audio book site? I like books? I don't have time to read anymore so I listen?
Fuzzy Nation is certainly at the top of my list somewhere, it's kind of hard to rank everything really. Will Wheaton did an outstanding job and John Scalzi certainly did the original author, since this is a rewrite, proud.
The end, though I can't say way. That may be because I JUST finished it. The intro also stands out quite well in my mind.
I was not aware that the book was a rewrite and really appreciated that Scalzi took the time to mention that.
I was pretty close to crying TWICE. If I say either it will certainly be a spoiler so I wont say anymore.
MINOR SPOILER BELLOW
I know that some people wont, or rather do not enjoy, reading books where dogs die. Rest assured that Carl does not die through this book. I really, from the very first chapter, thought I was in for a heart wrenching when that dog died. I can happily say that Carl is an important character from beginning to end.
Couldn't say but it would be close. My main comment is that while Wil Wheaton (see that alliteration) has a very good voice, he doesn't provide different voices for the primary characters so the audiobook is littered with "he said" and "she said"s. I feel like in other books, the narrator finds different voices for the characters and thus identifying the speak for every phrase is unnecessary, unlike with Fuzzy Nation
The perfect combination of Scalzi and Wheaton make for an enjoyable listen. I usually prefer lengthy audio books, but this one was an exception. This book has fabulous characters, is a great great sci-fi yarn with excellent narration. I had to finish it in two sessions. The story has an interesting twist on mankind's destructive nature vs. sentient inhabitants of a far away planet and perceptions in general. I love this book and Will Wheaton did an outstanding job as narrator.
