Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy) by Mira Grant
Feed (Newsflesh Trilogy)

Moogle, January 19, 2012

Zombies, politics and the "blogosphere." What more could you ask for? The first of the Newsflesh series by Mira Grant, Feed is compelling from start to end. We all are too aware of the recent surge of zombie culture and this book certainly has zombies in it. However, it is not heavily focused on the zombies themselves but those that have adapted to living in the post-zombie apocalypse world. Kellis-Amberlee is explained as the reason for the zombie virus. It is clear that the author has a great interest in and has heavily researched the science and socio-economic aspect of viruses and pharmaceutical medicine.

Years after the emergence of zombies, sister and brother, Georgia and Shaun, live in a world of new journalism. Mainstream media misreported the original outbreak and bloggers wrote for themselves and the frightened populace. There are bloggers that write fiction based off what they see, those that dare to "taunt" zombies, and those that write the truth. George, Shaun and their friend Buffy, are very popular among the blogging realm and are hired to follow a presidential candidate across the country. Of course, there is controversy tied with this campaign. Many bad things happen while on the campaign trail, which challenges the relationship of the main characters and those around them. I really recommend this book if you are interested in zombies. Even if you aren't, you probably will still enjoy reading this book.
