The advantage of this version is that you got both the original and the "updated" version of the story back to back.
Scalzi did a wonderful job of modernizing the story while retaining the core message. Incorporating modern social conventions with timeless view of human behaviors was great. Definitely worth the read.
Whether or not you ever read/listened to the original Fuzzy Nation this one is worth your time. It's an entertaining story that also gives you a chance to consider what human culture is and how it does and doesn't affect how we behave.
The story is fun and is read very well. But our heroine really needs to get a clue. Was there any reason not to move to a lower floor? Or maybe she might think to pick up a compass?
It is one of the best, something I wouldn't have expected from an author known for military fiction
John Lee sublimates himself into the characters so well that you come away feeling you've actually been in the settings of the story.
Despite this being a huge story, I came away wanting to know so much more about what happened to everyone.
This is an amazing story. The characters are fascinating: most are fully formed multifaceted people and even the ones who are less dimensional feel real.
