Reviews for Feed
I'll be honest, the first time I tried to read this book, I put it down after a few pages. The language and "feed" in the chapters made me feel a little nauseous.
But a week or so later I decided to go ahead and give the book another shot. I'm glad I did.
I'm not too sure if I would label this as a dystopian. Futuristic, yes.
The story follows Titus and his friends who go on vacation to the moon. While there, Titus comes acoross Violet, a strangely different girl in a material world. They are all hacked at a party, and their feeds, think a constant internet connection in your head, go down. Titus continues his relationship with Violet after their recovery and return to earth only to find out that she is seriously different. Ths is a very strange novel, and will leave readings quesitoning what it means to be connected.
While I thought that the premise of this book was very interesting, I was a little disappointed by the ending. The book did not provide me with quite the transformation that I wanted to see, specifically in the character Titus. Yet, I feel that the novel says something important and in some ways acts as a frightening omen of what the future could be if we don't listen.
3.5 out of 5 stars! by Beth
