I enjoyed it much better than I thought I would. A good mixture of zombies and post-apocalyptic with new-age news bloggers. The story didn't have any big surprises which was disappointing. The, I'm just trying to get the truth out, got old especially there was no acknowledgement until the very end that it was the truth as they saw it. Also it seemed the characters were much younger than 24 and tried too hard to justify that blogging and internet news was the only right one (but I agree that traditional news has huge faults).

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.
"Publishers Weekly Review"
by Publishers Weekly,
"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."
