    Fuzzy Nation by John Scalzi

    I loved the book "Little Fuzzy"when I was younger, as a matter of fact I still have it. It took me all day to read this(I'm home after having surgery) and I enjoyed this just as much as I did then. I had always wished that a series about the "Fuzzy's" had been written but H. Beam Piper never got the chance. His untimely death was such a loss to us all. Clearly he could have much, much more and it would have been great. Your book shows the same so maybe you could carry on the "Fuzzy Saga"if you are interested. I know I would be the first to buy it. Thanks for reintroducing me to the "Fuzzy's".

    A good retelling of a classic story.

    I read it in one day, despite having work I should have been doing.

    It Was Okay

    I have discovered that I like John Scalzi's writing, so when I saw that he had done what he calls a 'reboot' of one of my favourite SF stories - Little Fuzzy by H. Beam Piper - I thought, well, okay, I can read this. Also, a couple of my friends said they enjoyed it. So, did I? Yes, for the most part. Like I said, I enjoy Scalzi's writing. Which is a good thing, because all the lawyer talk, the scientific talk etcetera, could have been very dry and unappealing in another author's hands. There are a lot of differences from the original Piper novels. A lot of characters missing or retooled into other, maybe composited, characters. The plot, while remaining true at its heart, is focused much more on the legal aspects of the story as well as the um... not-niceness of Jack Holloway. All that is fine, but what I missed was the interaction with the Fuzzies. How Jack grew to accept and care for them as people, not pets. How the Fuzzies showed their sapience. I remember a scene in the original about a funeral that's stuck with me all these years. I missed those scenes in this book. So, yeah, I enjoyed it and would probably recommend it to others, but I wasn't as satisfied as I'd hoped I'd be. I would totally direct people to read the original Fuzzy books by H. Beam Piper, though. :)

    Imaginative

    This is a fun romp through an old classic. Scalzi is much lighter than Piper was. Worth reading if you have a dog.
