The story was a refreshing short story. I stumbled upon it by looking for my other 2 favorites by H.G. Wells. I went into the story not really expecting much since the story was very short compared to his other works but I was pleasantly surprised. The story drops you into the mind of a father and an experience with his son. The ending was not what I expected, but then after all I did not expect anything. This is a good story and expresses the mind of H.G. Wells a little bit more.
The narrator was very good. His expression in his voice are great and he does a very good job in separating out the characters. I will definitely be subscribing to his free story podcast from his website.
I dont know why the same narrator would change his style. In ep1 he was alright, in this ep i couldnt even tolerate it. Reading names before each sentence, reading doors opening, horrible. What a shame, I was really looking forward to the hole series after the first episode. Now? skipping all the rest.
So this audiobook is actually 2 books Part 1 is the reboot story "Fuzzy Nation" and Part 2 is actually the original book "Little Fuzzy". I will only review Fuzzy Nation.
Fuzzy Nation was a great story. I enjoyed it very much. I have not read any of Scalzi's books I had come across it as another narration by Wil Wheaton, which is now my favorite reader by the way. The story is suspenseful, trilling and fun. I only gave the story 4 stars because I wish there was more of the story or that it would be prolonged. It felt a tad rushed or parts left out, but please dont take this as the story is missing something because it isnt. Hopefully there is a sequel written soon.
Recommendation: If you like Wil Wheaton and/or futuristic novels check out "Ready Player One" by Ernest Cline. It wont fail you, I promise.
This has just jumped up to my most favorite book ever. It has it all, action, suspense, mystery and love. FILLED with 80s nostalgia and video games in the future, this was PERFECT for me. Wil Wheaton really fills the shoes of the characters very well and fits nicely into my vision of how the main character would sound. The book is well structured and will leave you wanting more and more. I could stop the book in wanting to know what happens. Excellent! There has been talk of a sequel and if so would be an INSTANT BUY. If you grew up in the 80s and/or early video games this is definitely for you, even if you dont the book, I feel, has enough to stand on its own as just the story to get you hooked. I wanted this to actually be real at times so that I may experience the awesomeness that is this world (minus the bad of course hehe). Thank you Mr. Cline for delivering on my inter-self of hope and fantasy.
the narrator isnt that good but the story is decent. It leaves a lot of questions, well not even questions, more like loose ends. Its free, its a good listen if you like these kind of stories.
