Feed by Mira Grant

(from the front cover)

Cancer is gone.  We no longer have to worry about the common cold.  This sounds like a dream, but only nightmares exist when you have moaning zombies to contend with instead.  The mainstream media has lost its credentials because of the lack of true coverage, resulting in bloggers becoming the truth behind the apocalypse. Georgia and Shaun Mason are two of these said bloggers, one reporting the news as she sees it and the other reporting the adventurous encounters with the living dead.

The Masons are only small town online press, but they hit the big time when they are selected to cover the next possible presidential candidate.  As their stats increase exponentially, the people they can trust decrease just as much.  Through thorough research, the truth begins to come out, but the price paid may be in human lives.

Grant's novel combines a number of realistic elements to the zombie apocalypse, which immediately drew me in.  I was pulling for my fellow bloggers, trying to figure out the mystery, but loving the paranormal aspects along the way.  The Masons are likeable.  The plot was addictive.  And, this reader simply could not FEED on the story fast enough!  I cannot wait to read about more Mason adventures in the sequel, DEADLINE.

Have you read FEED yet?  Would you rate it Good News or Bad News?


  1. I've always been intrigued by this book because of knowing what FEED and that RSS symbol means. I guess I should have figured it would have to do with zombies!

  2. Jenners ... Definitely a lot of zombies in this one, but I also believe it takes a unique perspective with the technology aspect! It's not all about the literal FEED!! :)
