Summary

FNH Audio presents an unabridged reading of H. Beam Piper's classic and much-loved science fiction novel Little Fuzzy.

Jack Holloway lives a solitary life in a wilderness of the planet Zarathustra. When a strange intelligent animal walks into his life from out of the forest everything is set to change.

The animal that he names 'Little Fuzzy' seems sapient and that threatens the charter of the company that owns the planet. With the company profits threatened, there's a lot riding on the sapience/non-sapience of Little Fuzzy and his fellows. Jack realises that both his life and that of Little Fuzzy are in danger.

Gotta love the classics

Fun and thought provoking. As relevant today as it was 56 yrs ago when written. What makes a person a person? This book offers much insight. Narration is very good. Recommend this book.

Wonderful story and good reading style.

I love both the authors way of portraying the characters and how he slowly reveals the plot without leaving you guessing. Mr. Herriot's voice is pleasant and animated without overacting. The pace and variety of inflection were kept us engaged.

Was ok

I did buy this book after i did listen to John Scalzi's fuzzy nation, where he states that it was a re write of this book. Because i did love that one i thought i had to listen to the original so i could compare them. They are different enough to be 2 different books with alot of similarities.

I was not a fan of the narration of this version, the story itself was ok but i had higher expectations
