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.



"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)

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.

Würden Sie dieses Hörbuch einem Freund empfehlen? Wenn ja, was würden Sie ihm dazu sagen?

Yes. It's ridiculous, at the beginning, but give Scalzi a little bit of faith, and he makes it work.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

As always with Scalzi, all the pieces fit together perfectly.

Wie hat Ihnen Wil Wheaton als Sprecher gefallen? Warum?

Wesley Crusher -- I mean Wil Wheaton -- always does a fantastic job. He's a pro!

Wenn Sie dieses Hörbuch verfilmen könnten wie würde der Slogan dazu lauten?

What kind of question is that?

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

It's no parody, and it's also not the overt silliness of The Hitchhiker's Guide, but it is not serious science fiction. It's fun science fiction.
