‘Octopuses And Other Brains’ Score: 5/5 I find the study of consciousness fascinating but I wasn’t sure what I’d make of a book that investigated it by examining octopus behaviour. Turns out I enjoyed all the octopus and cephalopod bits of the book more than the consciousness studies. Octopuses come across as charming, curious, playful creatures. I’ve no idea what I’d make of them if I visited their world,…

‘Big Bucket Of Nope’ Score: 2/3 I just didn’t enjoy this. I’m sure that says more about me than the book, but it wasn’t fun.

The timeline jumps…

‘Compelling, But Still Scary’ Score: 5/5 I enjoyed The Girl With All The Gifts, but maybe more after it had settled a while than at the time. Looking back I think I’ve enjoyed it more than a 4/5 merits. This is in the same world as TGWATG but it feels a little different. Still enjoyable, just different…

‘Didn’t Really Feel It’ Score: 3/5 I enjoyed the first of this trilogy but this one just didn’t really grab me as much. It felt a bit unsurprising and formulaic. Maybe the third will be better.
