Titus' ability to read, write and even think for himself has been almost completely obliterated by his "feed", a transmitter implanted directly into his brain. Feeds are a crucial part of life for Titus and his friends. After all, how else would they know where to party on the moon, how to get bargains at Weatherbee & Crotch or how to accessorize the mysterious lesions everyone's been getting?

I had actually read this book years ago. The fact that Audible had it on audiobook was among the biggest reasons I even joined the site.

The language is a bit hard to understand, I understand that's a big critique of this book. But it makes more sense to me to have it written the way it was. Yes, it's in some kind of slang and not exactly completely grammatically correct; But the book is a story being told from a teenager. In a world where grammar and linguistics are highly unimportant. It's the same way I feel about the Nadsat in Anthony Burgess' "A Clockwork Orange". Yes, it's also vulgar at times. But again; Do teenagers not talk this way - At least, when not around their parents?

The story isn't very original, but it's well told. The language isn't perfect, but it fits well. While the narrator wasn't great, he did a fair job.

I say give this book a listen, especially if you're closer to the teen range. 16-20 is perfect, in my opinion. It's message isn't limited to "internet overload" or "saving the earth"; It is my opinion that what you're supposed to take away from this book is the importance of having a desire to learn. Learn as much as you can, while you have the time. And don't just take what information other people hand you.

I don't understand why this book is rated so low, or gets such poor reviews. I found it both fascinating and very creepy at parts. Dragged sometimes, but over all I thought it was a great read/listen!
