    Story
    (4207)

    In John Scalzi's re-imagining of H. Beam Piper's 1962 sci-fi classic Little Fuzzy, written with the full cooperation of the Piper Estate, Jack Holloway works alone for reasons he doesnt care to talk about. Hundreds of miles from ZaraCorps headquarters on planet, 178 light-years from the corporations headquarters on Earth, Jack is content as an independent contractor, prospecting and surveying at his own pace. As for his past, thats not up for discussion.

    Samuel Montgomery-Blinn says: "Short, sweet, and satisfying storytelling."
    "Great Reimagining"

    Story
    Would you listen to Fuzzy Nation again? Why?

    Yes. Good characters, classic sci-fi story. Excellent performance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Holloway (Protagonist). Sort of an anti-hero, but good guy.


    What does Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi (Introduction) bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

    The intro makes it clear that this is a re-imagining of a classic novel.
    Wheaton is improving as an audio performer & does well at conveying emotion.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but it would be a spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    Any fan of classic Sci-fi will like this & the second half is the original story, which though written for the 60s, is still a great listen & different enough from Fuzzy Nation that they didn't seem redundant.
