It's 2135. Fluffy is a super-intelligent GAB (Genetically Altered Brain) cat. Like many dogs, cats, mice, and the occasional pig, her brain is the product of genetic tinkering by humans that started more than a century ago. With their powers of telekinesis, the animals can manipulate physical objects without being able to grasp them. They can speak to each other telepathic ...more

Fluffy’s Revolution is a witty sci-fi tale of dystopian adventure in a world where there are super-intelligent animals.
Fluffy is a five-year-old cat living in the year 2135. She is a GAB, as animals with genetically modified brains are called. She can read and use a computer. She can also communicate with other GAB animals telepathically, as well as manipulate physical objects through telekinesis.
Fluffy lives with a professor she calls “Dad.” Climate change has caused New York City to be abando

Thank you to NetGalley and Black Rose Writing for providing me with an e-ARC of this book.

3/5 stars. A lot of potential, but something was missing for me.

This was a cute and wholesome story about treating everyone equally and overcoming prejudice and I really appreciated that about it.

That said, I felt that the book was a bit too short for what it was trying to accomplish. It seemed rushed in some places... there were some long information dumps in place of natural world building at least one

What I Liked:

It was hilarious and perfectly captured the essence of a cat. Kind, caring, loving, but will rather be caught dead than actually show any of these emotions. Fluffy is such a beautiful little soul (of course, because I love cats). I spent a LOT of this just going "aww, bless" and cheering on the little group of determined animals really hoping they would save the world. It was also really fast paced, which you'd expect from a short book, but it didn't feel like a forced speed. It wo

This book introduces you to Fluffy and her "Dad".
With "Fluffy's Revolution", Ted Myers has created a quite intriguing and well-elaborated story with interesting characters. It was easy to get into the story, I was drawn in close to Fluffy. Fluffy is very complex, highly likeable; the other characters are of sufficient depth - according to their relevance. Ted Myers created a dystopian story that offers food for thought on human behaviour. The story proceeds at a steady pace, carefully portraying

Is it an Alpha Plus? A Nexus-6 replicant? No. It's Fluffy--one of the smartest, sweetest GAB (Genetically Altered Brain) kitties.

As a child, I was drawn to dystopian stories with wit and class. My favorites include: 1984, A Brave New World, Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, and Fahrenheit 451. Unfortunately I stepped away from reading these types of stories because, well, the world has been on fire for quite some time...

FLUFFY'S REVOLUTION came into my hands and I was instantly drawn into th

I'm a sucker for stories for with talking animals, although most of time, they can go either way in terms of quality. Fortunately here, Fluffy's Revolution hits the ground running and keeps at a decent pace throughout. The premise is interesting, and for such a short novel, the characters are surprisingly well rounded.

Only small drawbacks were the slightly problematic descriptions and the main romance, however mileage may vary on the latter.

Overall, a enjoyable read. Could easily be turned i

The story is engaging and entertaining, the books is well written.
I like story with animals and I really liked this one.
I hope this is a series so it will be possible to read again of Fluffy and her friends.
Highly recommended!

Disclaimer: I received a free advanced reading copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Thank you to the author, Ted Myers, for the reading opportunity.

“But don’t try to match them in violence; no other species on the planet is as vicious. Don’t try to beat humans at their games; make them play yours.”

Fluffy’s Revolution is set in a futuristic, dystopian setting where Genetically Altered Brain animals are in a lot of danger. These GAB animals have been made out to be “terr

I’ll be honest with you guys, I really was not sure whether or not I would write a review for Fluffy’s Revolution. However, since I received this book from NetGalley in return for an honest review, I felt the need to do so.

At first, the premise of Fluffy’s Revolution interested me enough to want to read it. The idea behind enhanced animals who could talk and had special powers was super intriguing. And the fact the animals could talk? Was I about to experience a cartoon in book form? Hardly, but

Fluffy’s Revolution is a unique story about animals who are GAB, or have genetically altered brains. These animals can communicate with each other telepathically, and they have telekinetic powers. They can move objects with their minds. They can read books and use computers. The year is 2135 and the population of earth is threatened by an approaching asteroid that is big enough to wipe out the entire planet and everyone on it. Doomsday is 30 days away.

Fluffy is a GAB cat who lives with her dad,

A group of super-intelligent GAB (Genetically Altered Brain) cats, dogs, and mice; compassionate humans; a bunch of bad guys; and the dystopian earth for the setting frame Ted Myers’ science fiction novella. A by-product of genetic tinkering by humans, GAB animals’ brilliant brain, which is capable of communicating nonverbally and telekinesis (ability to manipulate physical objects without touching) become the literal cause of systematic extermination of their whole species.

As someone who read (and adored) books about animals as a child, Fluffy's Revenge immediately appealed to me. I thought this might be a 'grown-up' version of that genre, maybe with additional wit and thought thrown in. But, well, to be honest, it still felt like reading a children's story. I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review, and so that's what this is going to be.

The premise sounds fabulous. A century into the future, we as humans have messed with animals so much they can now

Princess Fuzzypants here: At first I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy this book. It had a very dark and dystopian feel to it but I am so glad I stuck with it. Fluffy is a beautiful kitty who is very smart. In fact, she is even smarter than the kitties of today, including me. Humans in the 22nd Century have managed to muck things up royally. They are only human.
But one good thing they did was to genetically enhance the intelligence of some animals. Sadly, the success of the program led some bad

I got this ebook via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
With all of the issues facing animals today, I had hoped this would have some more relevance, and at least it does show empathy for animals, but in all other ways, it fell flat.
The characters are extremely flat, the writing awful, the dialogue stilted & unrealistic, & the villain a super typical animal-hater who just wants to erase all animals from existence.
This book had so much potential, & yet it just brings nothing t

Genetically Altered Brain (GAB) animals are being set up as humanity's enemy by the Triumvirate (3 corporations) that now rule the world. The book follows Fluffy the cat's adventures. "Humans are scum, Fluffy. Make no mistake about that," Professor James Riordan, the human Fluffy calls Dad, warns her.

Fascinating world building, interesting characters and cats that are as smart as I've always suspected! I enjoyed this book.

Loved this book!

I am a HUGE cat lover! This ranks up there with Tailchasers Song! Story takes a bit to build a head of steam, but hang in there for a wonderful story!

Fluffy is a GAB (genetically altered brain) cat. She is super intelligent with the ability to talk mind to mind with other animals (that have the same ability). GABS are not only cats, but dogs, mice pigs, etc. Fluffy loves living with her owner who has given her reading lessons and more. However Fluffy decides she wants to find her brother Jack. She doesn’t know where he is but feels that she can find him. Fluffy hates to leave her owner but feels she must. Will Fluffy find her brother? Out in ...more

After twenty years trembling on the brink of rock stardom and fifteen years working at record companies, Ted Myers left the music business—or perhaps it was the other way around—and took a job as a copywriter at an advertising agency. This cemented his determination to make his mark as an author. He started with his memoir because Mark Twain said "write what you know," but Ted quickly moved into t ...more
