From New York Times bestseller and Hugo Award-winner John Scalzi, an extraordinary retelling of the SF classic Little Fuzzy

ZaraCorp holds the right to extract unlimited resources from the verdant planet Zarathustra—as long as the planet is certifiably free of native sentients. So when an outback prospector discovers a species of small, appealing bipeds who might well turn out to be intelligent, language-using beings, it's a race to stop the corporation from "eliminating the problem," which is to say, eliminating the Fuzzies—wide-eyed and ridiculously cute small, and furry—who are as much people as we are.

    Easy read, but interesting story - well written.
  • Another Great Read

    By Brad Miser
    Once I started this one, I couldn't stop until it was over... Too fast. Good story, interesting characters, and plenty of humor. Get it and read it!
  • Great reboot

    It's been ages since I read H. beam Piper's original Little Fuzzy, but I have fond memories of it. This novel is a fitting tribute to Piper.
  • Very good

    By SteadyD
    Fans of Scalzi will enjoy it. More of a "dramedy" set in the future than hard scifi.

    Unfortunately, or fortunately, I never read the original. This story really captured my imagination and didn't let go. I would have finished it in one sitting. Nothing like a unique literary adventure, and Fuzzy Nation was a pleasant surprise!!!
  • Great reboot!

    With no disrespect to HBP, this is up there with the original. I loved the original story and I really liked this update.
  • A Great Read!

    By AJ-Guido
    I read the original version of this story and loved it, so was curious to see what John Scalzi could bring to the story line. I was very happy to see he improved on and enriched the story to such an extent I found it difficult to put the book down. Interesting, exciting and moving; at times he brought tears to my eyes and other times I had to laugh. Thanks for a thoroughly entertaining read - my only complaint is that it ended too soon!
  • Terrific updating of the original

    By Duncan Keefe
    Deeper characters, interesting updates of the story's technology, and enjoyable interpersonal and legal wranglings, with lots of enjoyable small plot twists. A great long-haul airplane read for adults, and would be a good gift to your favorite high-schooler: it's a fun, fast-moving story; no previous (or even future) interest in sci-fi required.
