I don't normally involve myself in writing reviews, as what I like, isn't necessarily what you like, but in this case I feel compelled to. This book was in a word AWESOME!!!!! No I have not read the 1960's version, and maybe that is good or bad don't know. This book was so well written. I listened to the entire thing today. I laughed the entire way through. He wasn't just a writer confusing himself with a comedian. The way he slid the humor in almost imperceptibly was wild. You didn't know it was funny till you caught yourself laughing. No I am not a literary genius or giant, but I am above average for intelligence, although I am so tired I did have to use spell check twice. Seriously, this is the first book by John Scalzi I have read, but will not be the last. No not an original idea, but how many publishing company give permission for rewrites on a book. Cant be too many. Maybe one day there will be a sequel. If you want a good old fashioned read. GET THIS BOOK!!!! Enough of my rambling. Happy reading all.
Absolutely, I read this few years ago, and listening to it performed brings an entirely different element to it.
I love colonization books, and this one is one of the best thought out plots/story I think I have seen.
something to do with grendels and their speed I am sure
Just a good, funny, easy listen. Great narration too, but then again IT IS Wil Wheaton.
I couldnt put it down till done, just to see what happened next. Get it.
Absolutely, Wil Wheaton and Grover Gardener are just simply the best there is.
