The Feed Reviews
I've read a lot of horror books and not really been scared but whilst this doesn't fit that category social media is everywhere and the idea of an apocalypse occurring when everything is switched off is something I can actually see happening and find quite scary. Whilst the switching off wouldn't cause me to have mass panic like some I can really feel for these characters especially Danny who has only ever known this way of life and struggles to cope in the real world without the network contact ...more
The Feed connected the world, making everything instantly accessible in your mind, thanks to an implant. The implant gave people immediate access to news, social media, and communication. Even memories could be stored for later access. Turning off your feed and "going slow"— living in the moment and talking aloud— wasn't easy. The Feed was addictive, and once you had it, you never wanted to be without it. So it's no surprise that when the Feed collapsed, the world collapsed right along with it.
Thanks to William Morrow for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review!
Who loves dystopian novels? Who wants something a little different and more unique in this genre? Well, THE FEED by Nick Clark Windo is exactly that. It's being compared to Mad Max meets THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS. Normally I'm not a big fan of the dystopian genre, but I really enjoyed this read!

Review originally posted on The Bibliophile Chronicles.
As soon as I read the synopsis for this book I knew it would be a cracking read, and I absolutely wasn’t disappointed. I read this book in two sittings on the train and just could not put it down. The Feed is brilliantly written and utterly terrifying at the same time.
The story is set in a future where our love of technology has expanded even further, all social interactions are done online in the feed, no one really talks in the real world ...more
The Feed, by Nick Clark Windo, is set in a world where communication and curation of experiences has moved almost entirely on line. To enable individuals to manage this, a brain implant has been developed that allows users to access data and upload content using their thought processes. The Feed offers news and social media; it allows for private and public settings, group chats and on line ordering of goods. Everything is backed up so memories have become data that may be accessed and shared at ...more
The Feed is a solid, well-written, but pretty traditional dystopian novel. Definitely recommended for dystopia fans! I expected something more ground-breaking from it, and maybe more powerful or adventure driven, but it's more of a slice-of-life. However, I enjoyed this book, and I'll try to give you my reasons why. Read the full review here on the blog.
While I enjoyed The Feed, my biggest problem was with the pace. Things didn't really take off up till maybe 70% into the book, a ...more
Whoa, this book is just begging for a big screen adaptation!
The idea that social media platforms such as twitter and Facebook are implanted in your brain so that you have immediate access to everyone’s thoughts immediately is both mind blowing and yet terrifyingly possible given the rate of technological advances (and who knows what they’re *really* doing in Area 51?!).
This book is beautifully written, dark and dystopian, and unputdownable.
I went into this book knowing nothing about it and I th ...more

We’ve all heard the cautionary tales involving social media, about the dangers of being constantly plugged in. Nick Clark Windo’s dark thriller debut takes this idea even further, imagining a future where people are permanently connected via implants so that access to everything is instantaneous as well as continuous. This is “the Feed” that the novel’s title is referring to—a new tech that humans have become so dependent ...more
