Feed Mira Grant review




The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop.

The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED. Now, twenty years after the Rising, bloggers Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives - the dark conspiracy behind the infected.

The truth will get out, even if it kills them.


Review:


This was disappointing. You know when a book has been on your "to read" list for yeeeeeaaars and then you finally get around it? Well this was one of those books but I don't think it lived up to the hype.

It's post apocalyptic but really it's post POST apocalyptic. The out break has already happened and zombies are just a fact of life now. This fact means that Feed is not your run of the mill zombie book and for a lot of people that won't be a good thing.

There are no hoards of zombies chasing down our protagonists (who are for the most part, irritating). No imminent fear of death. No real mass shoot outs. In fact there's not much of anything. I get that this book is part of a series and I can forgive a certain amount but I can't forgive the almost non existent plot line. Nothing happens for the first 60% of this book.




The constant droning on about feeds and streams and views got tiring after a while. Hell. I'm a blogger myself and even I had enough after a while. I did however enjoy the scientific parts. I have an interest in epidemiology and I could tell the author was knowledgeable in her field.

Then when something finally does happen it's so predicable that it was almost meaningless. I didn't feel a connection to any of the characters and while the ending somewhat redeemed things it didn't make this a worthwhile read.

I'm still undecided as to whether I'll continue with the series. Maybe the next one will be a bit more exciting.
