I'm about half way through the book and I think it is one of the most boring books I have ever read. It's not about zombies, it's about a political campaign in the future where zombies are a controlled, background threat. I don't think I can finish it.

A couple of decades after medical progress creates a zombie apocalypse, journalism seems more like a reality tv show and political campaigns are still big news. Less about zombies and more about the world as it has adjusted the "walking dead," you'll have to decide which is scarier, living with zombies or with continued political intrigue. I'm tempted to say politics.

Great read, a lot of fun. The story line is eerily relevant with the Orange one in office. Traditional Zombie tropes with a unique twist. Recommend!

Amazing apocalyptic zombie fiction. One of the few good ones written in first person.

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.

"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.
