Excellently done. A much more harrowing take on the weary zombie trope. ( )
  Ubiquitine | Nov 24, 2018 |
This book absolutely floored me. Feed was on my TBR for a long time, and traditionally speaking, I don't go in for zombie books. But Feed really isn't a "zombie book", per se. It's a book about a political campaign and a conspiracy in a world after the zombie apocalypse. So anyone going into this book looking for a heavy reliance on the walking dead will be disappointed. Zombies play an important part, but zombies aren't the story.

We follow three strong characters through the story who are all about getting the news on a presidential hopeful, and insisting on telling the truth. There's assassination attempts and zombie outbreaks and scares as the Kellis-Amberlee virus takes members of the caravan. The research is great here - the science moves well and feels possible. The way the world has rebuilt itself - in organized quarantine rather than gore and survival - also feels real. We look too often for chaos in zombie dystopias, but the calm organization in this one was a bit refreshing.

The ending was brilliantly written and made me really mad. I'll definitely be picking up the rest of the Newsflesh trilogy and more of Mira Grant's work. I'm impressed.

This book will appeal to fans of a more subtle zombie story, fans of books where the characters will go to whatever end to uncover the story, and fans of sibling stories. ( )

I can wholeheartedly recommend the series and have done so to quite a few of my friends.

I was so stressed out finishing this. It grabbed me from the get go. Great zombie novel, but with a little more...intelligence than some. Sometimes it felt like the narrator (Georgia) was TELLING me rather than SHOWING me, but other than that I didn't have many issues with the writing style. Found the political aspect somewhat familiar, minus the zombies, of course, and that may have been the scariest part to me. I'm not sure how I feel about the narrator, in first person, being killed at the end. I find that extremely jarring. But again, highly enjoyable zombie story. ( )

I loved the world. I loved the concept for the book. Some of the book was flat out amazing. Some of it was very contrived. I am a little torn on picking up the next book becuase what I loved I really loved but what I didn't I really didn't. The 2nd book could easily tip one direction or the other. ( )

Set more than two decades after an uprising of the living dead, Feed uses meticulous world-building to shape a narrative that’s believable, thrilling, and instantly clear.

Shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness, McGuire has crafted a masterpiece of suspense with engaging, appealing characters who conduct a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported.

Epigraph
Dedication
This book is gratefully dedicated to Gian-Paulo Musumeci and Michael Ellis.

They each asked me a question.

This is the answer.
First words
Our story opens where countless stories have ended in the last twenty-six years: with an idiot - in this case, my brother Shaun - deciding it would be a good idea to go out and poke a zombie with a stick to see what happens.
