Titus doesn't think much of the moon. But then Titus doesn't think much period. He's got his "feed" - an internet implant linked directly into his brain - to do his thinking for him. It tells him where to party or get the hottest bargains and how to accessorize the mysterious lesions everyone's been getting lately.

Review quote

This novel will make you want to pull out the plugs and head for the hills while you still can [...] Brilliantly, this book brings the future and its lingo right into our heads, the old-fashioned way, and reminds us to cherish the reality we are lucky enough to still have. * The Independent * A sharp, edgy book that deals with another kind of virtual reality...This is a savage and ultimately moving satire with strong language which is definitely not for the feelgood market, but which challenges the reader to think about the way we are manipulated by mass culture. * The Observer * ... a treat for jaded palates, executed with sustained energy ... it has an intelligent self-confidence and everyone should read it. * The Bookseller *

Our customer reviews

I went into this book having little expectations other then an interesting futurist read and boy was i surprised when it turned out to be one of the most thought provoking and interesting stories i have read in a long time. Now don't get me wrong i have some dislike with this book such as the main character [Titus] not being all that logical. But the idea of the feed as a whole just blew me away. The feed in an implant that allows access to the internet at all times, as well as the normal of being bombarded by advertisements at all time for the lastest hip product its also hindering society as a whole with the government no longer controlling the school but the companies behind the feed doing so. I couldn't help but keep relating the idea of the feed to my own life as i read this book and how well would i fare if i had to 'resist the feed' of my own mobiles or internet access at home. All in all i'd say this book is defiantly worth a read if you have any interest in the way a device such as the feed could effect our lives as it is now. As scarily enough the feed might not always be fiction...show more
