I want to make it clear before anything else: I am not rating this book on its actual quality. This is not a well-written book. The characterisation in this book is not terribly complex. Objectively, this is Not a Very Good Book.

And I loved the shit out of it.

This book is just so goddamn goofy and enjoyable and I love it to pieces and probably the best part is I wasn't expecting to. I liked George a lot, which probably helped, and for once I didn't actually see the first couple of plot twists coming (the latter few were a bit more predictable). The other characters are for the most part one-dimensional and I don't even care. I just really ENJOYED myself while reading this, despite my reservations, and really, what more can you ask for?

I have nothing constructive to say about this at all, do I? ( )

This is the first zombie novel I have ever read. And I quiet enjoyed it.

The story goes like this. It's the year 2039. It's been 25 years since the "Rising" meaning since the zombie epidemic first happened. By the way, the zombies are created after they are infected by the Kellis-Amberlee virus. The virus stays dormant in the body till the person dies or is bitten by a zombie after which there is rapid amplification and the person becomes a zombie. Our story follows Shaun and Georgia Mason who are blogger journalists and who have been chosen by Senator Ryman to follow him and cover his campaign for the presidential elections. Things start going wrong when there is an attempt to sabotage the campaign.

There is much thought put behind the imagining the setting and it is very realistic. Lot of time has been spent on character building and to good effect. Overall a nice read. ( )

I doubt I'll ever finish this book. Just not to my tastes. There were some intriguing bits but it was too slow and I'm not really interested in US politics -instant Zzz's.

About 90 pages read.

This is the second time I started this book and series. The first time, I sat it down after a few chapters- it just didn't grab me. This time I finished the first book. Doubt I will bother with the rest of the series.

Here again, it might just be the flooding of the market of zombie and zombie apocalypse series out there and unless the author comes up with something intriguing and different that will stand above the rest of the crap out there, it isn't going to work. Sadly, I'd have to say that Mira Grant didn't come up with anything new and exciting or noteworthy to grab this reader's attention. ( )

This was a fantastic read. I feel a bit stupid for how surprised I am by how much I enjoyed it. I wasn't prepared to like another Zombie book and yet I did.

Feed makes great use of setting and characters to tell a story. It is expertly plotted. I did take a star off for what felt like chronological troubles: I kept feeling it contradictions between it being 25 or so years in the future and after a society killing apocalypse how much technology, politics, and the news media are like they are today. This is a minor quibble and the only thing not to like about this excellent book.

I don't read a ton of YA. But this is top notch work. Makes me think I should read more. I was surprised at how good Akata Witch was and now I'm surprised at how good Feed is. I have to imagine there is a body of more YA spec-fic that will continue to surprise me. ( )

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.
