Publisher's Summary

A Newflesh novella from the New York Times best-selling author that brought you Feed, Mira Grant.

Shaun and Georgia Mason got out. That's the story people tell, anyway. They told the truth and they lived happily ever after, somewhere in the wilds of Canada. But running away is complicated, and when circumstances force them to return to what they left behind, they'll have to face the consequences of their own actions...and the actions of others.

The (Almost) Ending We Needed

When a book has this many spoilers to pretty much every other book in the Newsflesh series – you just take the description that Grant wrote herself: “Shaun and Georgia Mason got out. That’s the story people tell, anyway. They told the truth and they lived happily ever after, somewhere in the wilds of Canada. But running away is complicated, and when circumstances force them to return to what they left behind, they’ll have to face the consequences of their own actions…and the actions of others. ”

Warning: this review will contain spoilers to the other Newsflesh book. If you have not read at least the first three – you will have the main plots of the series spoiled.

Okay, now that I got that out of the way, Mira and Newsflesh is back. Not just that Georgia and Shaun are back… yes you read that correctly. Back from the Great White North. Coming To You Live is easily one of the most satisfying books I’ve read in this series. It had everyone that I knew and loved in it. Shaun, Georgia, and if I list anyone else it will spoil the story. Just the fact that this story bounces back and forth between Shaun and Georgia’s point of views made it a winner to me.

There is just something about this series that makes it perpetually enjoyable. Grant keeps finding stories that I want to read. She even calls some of the other stories out in this one once we run into one of the old gang. There are obvious call-backs to Deadline but there are some slighter call-backs to probably my favorite novella: How Green This Land, How Blue This Sea.

I don’t know what else to write about this book other than I really enjoyed hearing Shaun’s point of view again. And hearing from both the “real” and “not” versions of Georgia was both a mind-mess and probably one of the most interesting parts of Coming To You Live.

I keep asking for more and it sounds like Grant keeps giving it to me – little by little.

Unnecessary addendum

I adored the series, though I definitely had issues with the final book like most everyone. I was excited to see the characters revisited, to read some new developments... except that didn't happen. This was beyond disappointing. Slow and bland and extraneous.

Not Really Necessary

I do enjoy that the writer tried to add more insight to the already existing story of the Newsflesh Series, but this book fell flat for me, especially since that this book didn't really add much to the story. I enjoyed that our returning heroes Georgia and Shawn were the main focus again, set in Canada, a few years after the Events of the 3rd Installment of the Series happened. And the book spends almost 4 1/2 chapters to catch us up on how there live is now and where they live and the issues they have to face. in example how Shawn still has Mental Breakdowns and hears and sees the Georgia that is only in his head, while Georgia has Nightmares about the Hospital Room that she was Made in. then the story completely changes to how Georgia has the possibility of passing, then they get to Doctor Abbie's Lab with in a few Pages told the reasoning for the scare, all there friends show up and her surgery. and she survives. the entire story of the advents could have been made into a true book for the series but the story is watered down beyond belief to fit into a short 4 hour window.

Domestic Life with Shaun & Georgia

I dunno. I feel like this is part of another book that got edited out or part of a story line that really didn't get fleshed out. This novella really doesn't do anything to advance any of the plot lines or provide any additional insight into what happened in the previous books. I mean, don't get me wrong. It's not bad by any means, but it absolutely doesn't make any difference if you listen to this or not. The title might have as well been, "Georgia Goes to the Doctor". It has the potential to be the opening for a new book or story line, but I get the feeling this was released because the "Newsflesh" series, or at least the Georgia/Shaun story line is over and Ms. Grant had a little leftover material and figured, "Why not just go ahead and publish what's left." *shrug*. Certainly nothing wrong with that at all. If you've listened to the others and you're a huge fan, you'll enjoy hearing a little more about Shaun and Georgia's lives, but if you're on the fence, save the credit or the cash for something more substantial.
