For background, my favorite authors are George R. R. Martin, Robin Hobb, Jacqueline Carey, Ken Follett, Bernard Cornwell, Kevin Hearne, Jim Butcher and Margaret George.
Yes I would. This is a zombie story but it isn't about the zombies! Mira Grant created a believable world where this might be what it would be like after having to live with the zombies for decades. I laughed, I cried and I raged right along with the characters.
I can't really compare Feed to other zombie novels because it isn't really like them. It is more about the journalists on the campaign tour with a Presidential hopeful and just what happens to them to start making them question just about everything.
They gave a voice to the two main characters that didn't jar me out of the setting of the book, instead those voices drew me further in.
Rise up while you still can.
I read this in book format and then tried the audio format. I was not sorry for it and I look forward to relistening to this book in the future!
...or anything else they can sink their teeth into. Perhaps, a good audio book?
Dual male and female perspectives
Yes -lucky it was an audiobook. I did not need to "put it down".
Solid book, Not your Typical Zombie Book. Nice plot with lots of great and entertaining characters. The whole series is great
Warning - not your classic guts and gore zombie lit. More West Wing than Romero. That being said, I'm a sucker for an intelligent, fully conceived post disaster world, and this one took me by surprise. I didn't realize until the end that the story itself was a bit immature - expected a bigger reveal. But I was so distracted by the detail (and a tragedy) that it didn't matter.
Turned right around a ordered the next book, DEADLINE. Where I discovered the author could let go of something both this reader and writer had grown to love.
This book had tons of suspense and the narrator was great at depicting all the different charaters.
Kept me wanting more.
I honestly prefer reading to listening but I had a long 27 hr drive so they were the next best thing I could hope for. They captivated me and made the time fly!
The truth will kill you sooner or later!
Dystopian. I want more!
So Much Fun!!
George because well Just because just give it a listen I don't wana give anything away!
Too many to choose from ramping over zombies was fun though just as an example.
I almost cried no kidding you just get so attached to the charters
Really if you even kinda think you should then do it so much more than a zombie book.
The central character of the book has stayed with me months after I read the book and a few months after I read book two. I dont want to reveal too much, but this is a thoughtful book about the rle of media in society, the lack of incestigative journalism, and the lack of truth in the media and other institutions. I keep searching looking for book 3. The use of two narrators was exceptional, but Ms. Christensen's does a particularly engaging job.
News, Politics, Zombies
I tried really hard not to give anything away but I may have failed so I am going to put SPOILER up here just in case
I like that it is not a
This was a fun little story. I enjoyed the book. I felt the story was engaging. However, I felt the computer and other technical details in the story were too involved.
First of all...I am not a huge zombie fan, not that I don't like them, but that's not what drew me here. I am a huge sci-fi fan though. The negative comments seem to be from people only wanting a zombie book. I get it. But that aside, it's a pretty good read(listen). While the narrator isn't going into my top 5, she's not bad. And I wasn't bothered by a lisp at all, I actually listened for it and still didn't feel like it was Cindy Brady. Mira Grant is a pen name for Seanan Mcguire, an author I found and devoured all the books in her series,(Rosemary and Rue is the first, highly recommend it) went looking for more and stumbled on these. The Characters are well thought out and have a good amount of depth. I'm going now to purchase the next book. I say give it a chance if your not looking for a straight up zombie book, but a good sci-fi book.
