***** 5 stars.

This book is a re-telling of H. Beam Piper’s 1962 book Little Fuzzy.

Loved the book. Scalzi does a great job telling this story. The antagonist, while not necessarily the nicest of people, still has enough good points to draw you in and feel for the events that transpire after the initial sunstone find. I liked how he unraveled the series of events that gave a strong hint as to what was going to happen, and why, without betraying the specifics of what would happen. Definitely an excellent read I would recommend to all.
