Fun, smart, and stunning look at a future world where most people are permanently wired to the Feed... In addition, the futurespeak language of the novel makes for a good read (as with Clockwork Orange).

This novel is a chilling look at the future of our information- and advertising-rich society. It's superbly written and stays with you long after the story is over because the technology and culture in Feed is already ever-present in our lives.

Who needs computers,iPhones or even Google when "the Feed" resides in your brain? Your desires, preferences and interests are stored and come back to you in ads and suggestions on the feed. A story, although intended for the young adult audience, resonates with all of us as. The future is here and it knows who you are and what you want. Fascinating and prescient story.

When I first picked up the book, I wasn't fully interested. Not only was it not very long, but skimming the first couple pages I didn't find it very comprehensible. However, after having it recommended to me countless times, I finally read it. I must say that Feed has caused a huge impact in not only my perception of our future as a human race, but others' perceptions as well. M.T. Anderson forcefully integrates you through altered language and foreign concepts into this future world where everyone is connected to the "Feed". The Feed is an electronic system, connecting everyone, that tells you what to like, what to buy, what's new, what's old, and everything else you could possibly need. The Feed is such a complex idea, and is provided as a means to dumb down our society. It is truly a culture shock to read this book, and you are left having to disect the meanings of certain terms as you go along. Most important, though, this book is not predictable. M.T. Anderson leaves you to believe that this is a classic tale of tyranny and overcoming. That is not the case, which I was surprised to discover. This is not a book that you can go your whole life without experiencing. This should be recommended reading for every person, in my opinion. Read it. You won't be disappointed.

"Staff Pick" by ,

If you had your iPod touch, email, bank account, and family business all organized and recorded in an implant at the base of your neck, what would your world look like? Would you even bother talking? Would you care? Take a peek at our future and ask the questions that Anderson asks of his characters. No true science-fiction aficionado should miss Feed.

"Review" by , "A gripping, intriguing, and unique cautionary novel."
"Review" by , "M.T. Anderson has created the perfect device for an ingenious satire of corporate America and our present-day value system...Like those in a funhouse mirror, the reflections the novel shows us may be ugly and distorted, but they are undeniably ourselves."
"Review" by , "This satire offers a thought-provoking and scathing indictment that may prod readers to examine the more sinister possibilities of corporate- and media-dominated culture."
"Review" by , "The crystalline realization of this wildly dystopic future carries in it obvious and enormous implications for today's readers — satire at its finest."
"Review" by , "Subversive, vigorously conceived, painfully situated at the juncture where funny crosses into tragic, Feed demonstrates that young-adult novels are alive and well and able to deliver a jolt."
"Synopsis" by , The stunning National Book Award finalist that follows in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr. — a smart, savage satire of an imagined future — is now in paperback.
"Synopsis" by , Identity crises, consumerism, and star-crossed teenage love in a futuristic society where people connect to the Internet via feeds implanted in their brains.

For Titus and his friends, it started out like any ordinary trip to the moon — a chance to party during spring break and play with some stupid low-grav at the Ricochet Lounge. But that was before the crazy hacker caused all their feeds to malfunction, sending them to the hospital to lie around with nothing inside their heads for days. And it was before Titus met Violet, a beautiful, brainy teenage girl who has decided to fight the feed and its omnipresent ability to categorize human thoughts and desires. Following in the footsteps of George Orwell, Anthony Burgess, and Kurt Vonnegut Jr., M. T. Anderson has created a not-so-brave new world — and a smart, savage satire that has captivated readers with its view of an imagined future that veers unnervingly close to the here and now.
