Beschreibung

The space-faring Yherajk have come to Earth to meet us and to begin humanity's first interstellar friendship. There's just one problem: They're hideously ugly and they smell like rotting fish. So getting humanity's trust is a challenge. The Yherajk need someone who can help them close the deal. Enter Thomas Stein, who knows something about closing deals. He's one of Hollywood's hottest young agents. But although Stein may have just concluded the biggest deal of his career, it's quite another thing to negotiate for an entire alien race. To earn his percentage this time, he's going to need all the smarts, skills, and wits he can muster.

Kritikerstimmen

“Narrator Wil Wheaton animates the slapstick text with a tone that is appropriate for the story of a young Tinsel Town agent whose other clients are either equally deranged or aren't making him much money.” (AudioFile)

Entertaining idea

I think this was the most creative way of describing a first contact to date. It's quite funnily written and believable.

The writing sometimes is a little off by the number of repetitions or the overly "creative" adjectives picked to describe situations or behavior. It's not that I not enjoyed the audio book but it tripped me off a little sometimes.

Not just Science Fiction

This novel comes in camouflage, because it pretends to be science fiction but it is not. It is also a brilliant satire and tour-de-force of Hollywood and the way it treats people and issues. A few times I got the impression Carl Hiassen has abandoned Florida and its environment to go west...

The book takes some time till you get into the story but then you are just hooked. The reading by Wil Wheaton, very quiet and leaving hysterics to others, also contributes to make listening a pleasure.
