  1. i had no idea that mira grant had written ANOTHER newsflesh novella until i got my copy of Chimera in the mail and i saw this one listed on the also by page i ran to my computer and bought it IMMEDIATELY and as soon as i finished Chimera, i read this even though a better person would have hoarded it instead of burning through all the available mira grant and finding themselves completely bankrupt of mira grant words to read but i m not complaining much generally speaking, you can read these news [...]

  2. 2.5 stars This was okay, but normally Mira Grant explores and element of society affected by the The Rising in her novellas This was just a short story about two of the side characters, and although it was an easy quick read, I thought it wasn t as good as the rest of the series.

  3. I REALLLY love this series, the author builds her world with feet firmly planted in plausible and sometimes current science The series is also known to be light on the zombie chomping and heavy on strong characterization.This novella seem to focus on the rogue scientist, Dr Shannon Abby but actually it revolved around Foxy if you don t know who she is then you have to read book 3 This add on was not as fun as How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea but I was still left with a feeling of satisfact [...]

  4. Please Do Not Taunt the Octopus takes us into the mind and laboratory of Dr Shannon Abbey, who rightly believes that one should not taunt the octopus But despite the silly title, this latest installment in the Newsflesh universe is just as serious and devastating as expected It starts off rather slow, mostly introducing us to Dr Abbey and her lab, but her voice carries the narrative It s fascinating to see this character from the other side, to see the depth behind her crafted mad scientist pers [...]

  5. 3.5 starsWhen it started w Dr Abby trying to get Barney the octopus down off of the light fixture and he takes the stick and pokes her back then whacks her head I thought this was going to be funny and maybe it would counter balance the emotional destruction that last story did to my heart I was wrong.This is a story about a few incidents that take place at Dr Abby s lab We also learn what happened to Elaine from The Day the Dead Came to Show and Tell

  6. This is a novella set in the Newsflesh series but needs to be read after all the books otherwise there are too many spoilers The story focuses on Dr Abbey and an attack on her lab Of course she is also constantly dealing with spies from the CDC and that is brought up in the story A good solid read but you must have read the other books first to get the best out of the story otherwise the surprise at the end will not make that much sense An ebook original

  7. I love Octopi They are so damn smart and cool I was exciting to see the latest installment of Ms Grant s zombie opus included them Since this is a NO SPOILER review I can t say who else showed up but one person broke my heart a little It s a very good novella and well worth an afternoon.

  8. This brings it all back and makes me realize just how much I ve missed this series Thank goodness there will be

  9. Anyone else totally in love with our mad scientist And Foxy makes an appearance too I haven t read her own novella, but I plan on it.

  10. We can raise the dead We can cure cancer We can make the world better in every possible way, save one No matter how hard we try, we just can t cure stupid I do miss Dr Abbey and her snarky humor Please Do Not Taunt the Octopus is a novella set in Newsflesh world Dr Abbey is this mad scientist that I came to love and be leery at the same time, and seeing that she finally have her moment, I was excited to read this one Fave quote I didn t recognize what she was describing as love but I had been ar [...]

  11. Did you know that octopus held grudges Mira Grant is at it again, this time from another unique point of view Dr Abbey the underground virologist Follow her as she deals with everyday issues and some much bigger ones.My first word of warning Do not read this if you haven t read all three in the Newsflesh series But, another warning is definitely do not read this until you have finished the novels and The Day The Dead Came to Show and Tell This book does contain spoilers to the three books, so pl [...]

  12. More a 3.5 Novella in the Newsflesh series regarding Dr Shannon Abbey My biggest complaint about this novella is probably just that the character of Shannon Abbey is so very like the character of Dr Cale from Grant s Parasitology series that I sometimes got confused which story and which traits belonged to which Grant definitely has some repeating character types look at how much Newsflesh s Foxy is like Parasitology s Tanzy and it can make it harder to tell the series apart, remember which stor [...]

  13. Love the novella Especially the perfect touch of Dr Abbey s objection consistent rejection calling out of the ableism of the term mad scientist , because I am very tired of casual slurs against me other disabled people as a mentally ill physically impaired person, it s very comforting to see a talented, now deservedly well known awarded author speak up about ableist language, especially towards people with mental illness.I know Seanan Mira has OCD, like me I m not outing her, she s pretty open a [...]

  14. If the title won t draw you in I don t know what will I wondered what the heck Octopus Octopi would have to do with the story, turns out they made for a great opening I had to laugh at the antics of Barney and the odd relationship that Dr Abbey had with him.Dr Abbey was funny in her views of her job, her relationship with her staff and the legitimate organizations like hers You could tell that newbies weren t quite sure what to make of her, but loved her once they got to know her.The mystery wom [...]

  15. Short story set after the Feed trilogy ends I would only recommend reading it if you ve read the series as it features secondary characters who were developed extensively in the longer works Although this comes in the list after the story The Day the Dead Came to Show and Tell, I highly recommend reading them together in either order I like Show and Tell a little better as it is horrifying disturbing and is set in early post Rising As this one is set after the Feed series ends, it is 30 years [...]

  16. For once I will complain that the book was too short There were octopus, there were lab and there were scientist Although there was too little of the octopus Needs Barney I haven t read other newsflesh books and I feel it wasn t necessary I read sample of the first book so I knew the people this book referenced I probably spoiled the previous books for me but I couldn t resist octopus Will probably now read the others too.

  17. Okay, so I mostly read this at work, which is kinda fun Also, this was really good Like, like 4.5 stars Not quite 5 stars, but almost This absolutely reaffirms my decision to read anything by Mira Grant and Seanan McGuire it s always a good, of potentially heartbreaking, time.Also, it was super convenient timing to start reading this right before Rise was released I didn t plan it that way I didn t even realize Rise was coming out Weird, huh

  18. I love these novellas for adding so much background to the Newsflesh world, and this one definitely doesn t disappoint It was great to see Dr Abbey again, and to learn how her underground lab keeps functioning Not as action packed as some of the others which isn t a bad thing this instead had room for character development and twists And octopi

  19. Add usual, grim and funny and smart in about equal measure Didn t make me cry as hard as Mira Grant usually does seriously, if I can ever figure out what it is about her writing that does it, I will bottle it , but did get me a little weepy.

  20. While I didn t think this was as good as the Newsflesh series and the other novellas, I really enjoyed it Seeing what happened to Elaine was a tragedy.

  21. Seanan McGuire continues to shatter my heart into a thousand pieces with the newest installment of her Newflesh series And the fact that the shorts can be even worse than the core three book should tell you something Once I get caught up with the Parasite series, I m a little terrified of what she ll do there As I ve mentioned with the other Newsflesh shorts, what I love is that there s so much added to an already rich universe that I really don t want to find out what s happened to main the cas [...]

  22. I absolutely love Dr Abby She s one of my favorite characters in the whole series She marches to the beat of her own drum and she doesn t take shit from anybody Favorite quote from the book Good dogs should never be asked to prove that they re good dogs If there s anything in this world we should take on faith, it s good dogs.

  23. I needed a light read and Grant s novella was perfect This is an ebook only novella that I really enjoyed featuring Dr Abbey and the Fox from other Newsflesh stories I really love this series so much and a quick visit to some known characters was perfect.

  24. I love Dr Abbey I was so glad to see with this character I m not a big fan of the Fox though She already had her 15 minutes of fame I hope that there are no short stories about her.

  25. I love these characters I m so glad REDACTED isn t dead, this was so great Dr Abbey is all kinds of fun.

  26. Have I told you lately how much I love the Feed series Pure brilliance I could tell you Mira Grant can do no wrong, but then again I picked up her Parisitology series, and found very little to relate to in the novel It happens MC s can sometimes not be your cup of tea But this novella was like sitting down for a cup of tea with an old friend A very cranky mad scientist old friend, and a very detached from reality murdery old friend But then again the odd ones are the best ones to read about and [...]

  27. Please Do Not Taunt the Octopus by Mira Grant is a Newsflesh novella, set in the same world as Feed and sequels I admit I mainly picked up this specific Mira Grant novella because of the title I was justified in my choice when the octopus s eyes on the cover came up under the transparent loading symbol on my iPad, making them appear to flash just before the book opened.This book is set after the Newsflesh trilogy, I m pretty sure It s been a while since I read it, but from memory, it s definitel [...]
