The Feed Reviews
"The days harden. They stay bright but the air becomes unkind."
I really enjoyed reading The Feed! It was an intriguing dystopian story, and it had some elements from other stories I've enjoyed like Station Eleven, Battlestar Galactica, The Host, Black Mirror, Superman: Red Son, Station Eleven, and 11/22/63.
I noticed other reviews complaining about not connecting with the characters - I agree with the sentiment, but I wasn't bothered by it. I felt like it was more important to relate to the stor ...more
A stunning debut! I absolutely loved The Feed and have had to leave my review for a day to get over the book hangover it gave me. I was also left with that itchy brain feeling when a book totally gets under your skin and explores the darker locations of your imagination bringing to the surface even darker thoughts.
The Feed is a cautionary and timely tale of how much we rely on social media; the internet is streamed directly into your brain and your memories/dreams etc are saved in something sim ...more
I thought I’d give this a go as I sometimes like post-apocalyptic books. This one was good and it’s set in a world where people no longer talk to each other, all communication is through The Feed.
At first in the book we see how life is in this world of The Feed, then it all goes wrong. The world collapses, everyone is forced off-line and people are ‘taken’ in their sleep. Their minds are taken over and they are lost.
A few years on and we are with Kate and Tom, living on a farm with a group of ...more
It's an epic concept - I am still processing what I've read it's that unique and scarily possible in this crazy world we live in. What would happen if our brains worked like facebook feeds? If anything we spoke about ended up accessible to everyone? What happens when you turn off the feed? This is a bookclub book and then some. No locations to speak off but the landscape of social media is a hell of a setting!
**5 Goodreads Stars**
"Who did you first share your thoughts with? It was the most intimate feeling, wasn't it? Nothing between you, no way to lie, just pure and perfect thinking. All of us, plaited together."
"The space we create, that we forge with our lives - that's what we have to protect. We work hard for such an inconsequential space, but it is absolutely everything to us."

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
Strong, post-apocalyptic read with an excellent, highly original concept at its heart, THE FEED is atmospheric and thought provoking. The characters are not your 'usual' and I really enjoyed the flipping between Tom's and Kate's POVs, plus The Feed 'updates' were particularly well done. I wish in some ways we'd seen more of the apocalypse itself in 'real time' as The Feed went down, but the sucker punch ending more than makes up for this. Suitable for fans of THE STAND by Stephen King and DEFEND ...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
