    (338)

    Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Nocturnal: A Novel the most enjoyable?

    I love the story and the memorable characters, Bryan, Pookie, Robin, and of course Mr Biznass.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The seamless blending of hard police science and proceedure with the supernatural horrors.


    Which character – as performed by Phil Gigante – was your favorite?

    Mr Biznass. It would be Pookie Chang, but I will forever hear Scott's version of pookie in my head when his lines are spoken.


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

    Chief Zou's choice. 'nuff said


    Any additional comments?

    Would be a 5 star performance for Mr. Gigante, If I had never heard Scott's version of Pookie.

  • Fuzzy Nation

    Story
    (3814)

    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."
    "Well done re-boot of a classic"

    Story
    If you could sum up Fuzzy Nation in three words, what would they be?

    anti-hero, clever, and modern


    What other book might you compare Fuzzy Nation to and why?

    The Dexter series, because of anti-hero themes,
    Blade runner because of a number of parallel plot points


    What about Wil Wheaton and John Scalzi (Introduction) ’s performance did you like?

    Wil is a very solid and dramatic reader who doesn't waste time with ridiculous over-the-top falsettos or other bizarre character voices. He puts emphasis on the character rather than himself.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    While I didn't due to other demands on my time, It certainly would have held my interest well enough to listen to it in a single sitting.


    Any additional comments?

    This was my third Scalzi/Wheaton book (Red Shirts and Agent to the stars were the others....highly reccomend both, especially Red Shirts)
