Given Feed's good rating, I expected a lot more. I found myself getting pretty bored and I LOVE zombie novels.
The authors did an excellent job researching this book and painting an interesting post-apocolyptic world. But it seemed like 95% of the book was describing the world. While interesting and clearly creative, 12-14 hours of 'description' gets old and boring.
I thought the action scenes were rushed and in short supply.
I feel like I am pretty good at predicting surprises, so predictability doesn't bother me all that much. But the outcomes were pretty predictable.
I really liked the dynamic set up between the two main characters, siblings Georgia and Shawn.
But I think the inner-dialogue of the main character (Georgia Mason), was distracting, disruptive, and very repetitive. She repeats the importance of her journalistic integrity over and over and over and over and over. I was willing to give the authors the benefit of the doubt, assuming this was to bring out the unique personal values of the main character, but then she brings it up during action scenes with zombies and others chasing her. It just got annoying.
And I realize blood testing machines are a ubiquitous part of the new world, but how many different ways can we describe a needle prick, antiseptic spray, and red/green light? After a while I really wanted the authors to come up with some short-hand for that process, especially since the book lacked action.
In short, not enough action, way too much describing.
