Feed's unique post-apocalyptic universe has not, even after my second read, ceased to fascinate and impress me... primarily due to the fact that the world has not come screeching to a halt. The entire population of Earth does not slink into hiding places and form small, ragtag teams of survivors. Life goes on, as it would realistically, forming new culture, new ways of life, and above all, new priorities in one's life. Feed follows adoptive siblings Georgia and Shaun Mason, bloggers in a world that has a strong demand for civilian journalism and online news. This story will not shock you with gore, leave you terrified of zombies, or be a non-stop thrill ride. It will put you in the shoes of two realistically written characters and their journey to fame through news and entertainment. It will leave you entertained, even when nothing visibly or outrageously entertaining is occurring. That's how you know a person is a good author. This is, without a doubt, the best zombie novel I have had the privilege of reading, and I highly recommend it.

Too much tech porn and logistical stuff.

I listened to the audio version, but my husband read the book. WE BOTH LOVED IT. Read the whole trilogy. Mira Grant is an amazing writer.

I absolutely love the premise of this book. And all the way through, you have are literally kept on the edge of your seat. If you have the patience to bear through this, you won't be disappointed.

I usually finish every book I start, but this one could not hold my interest. I got about 100 pages in and decided this was not for me. Maybe if there had been more zombie action? Maybe if the characters had been more interesting? Story line was so-so.

It's so great to have another book on zombies - - we need even more movies, books, advertisements full of zombies. In fact, I think it is high time we had a zombie president! Oops, you mean the present one, and the past four presidents, were all zombies?

Loved it! Some areas you're laughing and some catch you crying. And then there's the zombies...

For as long as this book was, I really got sucked in, and it went by quite fast. Mira Grant has created a very vibrant and detailed world to drop into, and she's done her research. At first, I was a little put off by just how much detail was in everything (do we really have to wait for the flashing green lights on every infection-detecting test kit? They go through at least three a chapter) but then I realized that I needed that detail. Every time she took the time to describe each little thing that was going on in a tense situation- it made the situation more real, made the suspense build. I was waiting for that green light every time. The main characters have a great relationship, tenderly co-dependent in a zombie-fighting, truth-seeking world. I dove into the book, and it was a deep dark swim. Now that I've surfaced, however, it might be awhile before I dive into the next one.

As Georgia Mason wrote, the zombies aren't the story anymore. The zombies already happened. I enjoyed this novel all the more because it was about what might happen 20+ years after. Intriguing world and premises. Clever pop culture nods. But yeah, if you're mostly looking for scenes of people getting eaten messily or whacking zombies with a shovel, this isn't your book.

Yet another book with an ok story line but without the substance of a great book. Blogging was boring, the characters dull and there was sooo not enough zombies. I am never one to leave a book unfinished but this one was just too blah to continue. Might have had a good ending but I just could not get there. If your looking for a true zombie book this is not it!

"It is with great joy that I report that the youth of America aren't actually riddled with ennui and apathy; that the truth hasn't been fully forsaken for the merely entertaining; that there's a place in this world for reporting the facts as accurately and concisely as possible and allowing people to draw their own conclusions. I've never been more proud of finding a place where I can belong.
