Feed
by M.T. Anderson
-dystopia, YA
Amazon | Goodreads

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.


Listening of the audio version which I highly recommend as you will get a good feel for the advert feeds presented.

  3. A lot of these books are pretty new to me but I know Rainbow Rowell. I've read her Fangirl novel and well, I think it's not for me. So, I think I'm going to pass on Landline.

    I do hope that you'll enjoy it though. Seems like I am the only odd sheep in the blogosphere who didn't like Fangirl.

    Have fun reading. Thanks for stopping by Thanks for stopping by Thoughts and Pens.
