Feed is a great zombie book that isn't really about the zombies. Yes, they're there but the book is actually about Georgia and Shaun, adoptive sibling bloggers who get the chance of a lifetime to be the lead journalists on the presidential campaign trail. Along the way, they'll uncover government conspiracies and 24/7 surveillance. All of this is happening in a world overrun by zombies. It's definitely a must read for those who enjoy well written characters and a thought provoking story.

This was a pretty good read. I don't have a clue about blogging and online journalism and it was still pretty readable. The brother and sister team was an interesting contrast too

Midst the tongue-in-cheek zombie action and humor is a surprisingly sophisticated commentary on journalism--how we gather and distribute information.

Not bad for trashy entertainment. The author tries hard to make up a way for zombies to happen scientifically, but it just doesn't work. Zombies have to be animated by evil spirits or it just doesn't work. Think about it. Zombies eat meat, hence they are predators. It is almost unheard of to have a horde of predators. Predators are top of the food chain and need to be out numbered by their prey. This is a common fault with most zombie stories that want to be "real". A virus needs a host that eats,digests, and converts food into energy. Maybe some form of mutation, but the zombies in this book just don't work. I did like the aspect of bloggers replacing news sources. I don't think the corporations would put up with the that though.

So good. Just so so so good!
Brilliant. The science, and the political climate was very well thought out. Very well written.
The story had me completely hooked.
And there are zombies and there are conspiracies. And motorbikes sailing over the top of zombie mobs.
And very sad bits.
Go read it.

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.

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.

"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.

- From Another Point of True, the blog of Richard Cousins, March 18, 2040"
