Anderson gives us this world through the voice of a boy who, like everyone around him, is almost completely inarticulate, whose vocabulary, in a dead-on parody of the worst teenspeak, depends heavily on three words: "like," "thing," and the second most common English obscenity. He's even made this vapid kid a bit sympathetic, as a product of his society who dimly knows something is missing in his head. The details are bitterly funny--the idiotic but wildly popular sitcom called "Oh? Wow! Thing!", the girls who have to retire to the ladies room a couple of times an evening because hairstyles have changed, the hideous lesions on everyone that are not only accepted, but turned into a fashion statement. And the ultimate awfulness is that when we finally meet the boy's parents, they are just as inarticulate and empty-headed as he is, and their solution to their son's problem is to buy him an expensive car.
Although there is a danger that at first teens may see the idea of brain-computers as cool, ultimately they will recognize this as a fascinating novel that says something important about their world.

I like this book and its concept, but I read it as an adult and I think I'm far too old for the prose or perhaps I've simply read better dystopian novels.Published 6 hours ago by Mayli
I liked the love story that emerges throughout the narrative. Could not get used to reading the futuristic language, in parts, though.Published 2 days ago by LittleAngelVintage
This book was written before Facebook and Twitter, which makes the scenario described in Feed all the more astounding. The story itself is offbeat and engaging. Read morePublished 10 days ago by dj
This book started off feeling clunky. It’s full of futuristic teen speak, and has a selfish and entitled teenaged narrator. Read morePublished 16 days ago by Amazon Customer
