5.0 out of 5 stars One of the classics of science fiction April 3, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I first read this back in the 70's. It was amazing then and it is amazing now. The characters are original, and the story is just as important today as when he wrote the book. Take an old explorer looking for sunstones and a young native of a newly explored planet, combine with a multi-planet mega-corporation, and you have a plan for disaster. When a corporate controlled scientist kills one of these small creatures,all hell breaks loose. Piper wrote three books in this series, all published after he committed suicide. 3 other authors have published sequels since then.

5.0 out of 5 stars An old favorite June 8, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
All though the author wrote in what today is an old fashioned style and tone, it is still one of my favorites. The Heroes are heroic, intelligent, and optimistic, and succeed in the end. The Villains are either totally evil or see the errors of their ways and become heroes. This is something not seen today with current writers showing us a more neutral or down right pessimistic characters. This might be more realistic but not nearly as much fun

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent work of science fiction July 3, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
The planet of Zarathustra sleeps quietly, the outright possession of the Chartered Zarathustra Company. However, something is about to wake it up. When Jack Holloway, a lone prospector out in the bush discovers a small humanoid race that might just be sapient, the company trembles. The company’s claim to the planet is based on its classification as a Class III uninhabited planet, and the company is too big to be threatened with impunity.

But, the first of the little humanoids (Fuzzies) discovered knows nothing about charters and the law. Little Fuzzy joins Pappy Jack, and discovers a whole new world, a world full of fun and adventure. These are the adventures of Little Fuzzy, and his turning upside-down of a whole world!

This book was originally published in 1962, but is every bit as good today as it was back then. The story starts out a bit slow, but it picks up speed, and by the end you find that you can’t put it down! H. Beam Piper was an author whose suicide tragically cut short what would have been a full and brilliant career. If you like good science fiction, set in a realistic and believable milieu, then I highly recommend this book to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Sci-Fi Novel February 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great science fiction novel with thought provoking ideas about encountering an alien race that seems more like an animal or cute pet. The size of the aliens distracts us from the facts of their intelligence. They are indeed wiser than us, and gentler than us. It is the start of a great classic sci-fi series.

5.0 out of 5 stars a Five Star read. Story-telling at it's finest. June 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Storytelling is the art of inducing an,"and then what happened?" It's in every page right through to the end. What's old fashioned about this book is good stuff. From style and tone of writing to an ethos seemingly lost from modern fiction. I miss it more since I found it again. Good read!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite Sci-Fi novels! April 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you can read about Little Fuzzy without smiling, you are dead! However, there is quite an indictment of how humans in general tend to exploit, use, and discard new things that come their way. One of these days, I hope to be sentient, as described toward the end....
