Zombies! a fast paced novel, set in the future, compelling characters and a fairly sensible explanation of the cause of a world wide zombie pandemic beginning in 2014. Love the idea that responsible respectable journalism is in the hands of bloggers in 2039. I read the whole trilogy with great enjoyment.

I'm completely in love with this book... well written, fast paced, complex characters, a newswriter/heroine, political intrigue, and zombies that make sense to me.

The beginning of a fantastic series of books. Feed tells the story from the point of view of Georgia Mason, a no-nonsense blogger in a world where zombies have become a part of daily life. She is accompanied by her adoptive brother, Shaun, who insists on seeing every zombie he can, and poking it with a stick. The book is funny, thought-provoking, dramatic, and heart-wrenching. With cult references abound, this book is not to be missed.

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.

"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Urban fantasist Seanan McGuire (Rosemary and Rue) picks up a new pen name for this gripping, thrilling, and brutal depiction of a postapocalyptic 2039. Twin bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason and their colleague Buffy are thrilled when Sen. Peter Ryman, the first presidential candidate to come of age since social media saved the world from a virus that reanimates the dead, invites them to cover his campaign. Then an event is attacked by zombies, and Ryman's daughter is killed. As the bloggers wield the newfound power of new media, they tangle with the CDC, a scheming vice presidential candidate, and mysterious conspirators who want more than the Oval Office. 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." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Synopsis" by , The first novel in a brilliant new Newsflesh trilogy — about an America shattered by a terrible pandemic, and a race for the White House that no one may survive. Available in a tall Premium Edition.
