I listened to Fuzzy Nation, written by John Scalzi, a couple of months ago. It is the re-imagining of Piper's Little Fuzzy. I thought it was a great story. I was surprised and pleased to find that my audiobook also included the recording of Little Fuzzy.

It was fascinating to see the differences in the two books, the same story but with some different twists and turns and some definite changes in the characters. I can see why Little Fuzzy is considered a classic. Both books are good and have their strong points. While I ended up giving both books 4 stars, for me, overall, Fuzzy Nation is the better book. The characters have so much more depth and complexity, and the Fuzzies themselves felt more real to me, not just cute Ewok-like creatures.

Bottom line though, both books are well worth reading.
