This is an entertaining book about whether a species called the fuzzies are sapient or not. Even though it is dated, the story is still enjoyable. For instance, they still film things and the film has to be developed. The fuzzies are fun, the characters are rather flat. I listened to this on audible, and the narrator made some odd voice decisions. The main character sounds like an old miner from a western. The police sound like NYC cops. There is even one character that sounds like a NYC Jew. Other characters try to sound like the racial identification of the names. Very odd.

Most of the story is a debate over what sapience is. Some of the ideas are outdated. Also, you never feel any real peril for the protagonists. The antagonists are pretty incompetent which I thought added to the humor. I saw this listed as a juvenile book. I can see why. It was written in 1962.
