The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat 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, Georgia and Shaun Mason are on the trail of the biggest story of their lives-the dark conspiracy behind the infected. The truth will out, even if it kills them.FEED is the electrifying and critically acclaimed novel of a world a half-step from our own---a novel of geeks, zombies, politics and social media.
Written in first person mostly from Georgia Mason, you get first hand insight on what it really is like to live in a zombie filled world, scared to go outside, afraid of your neighbor, or even your mother or father. Not only do Georgia and her brother, Shaun have to deal with zombies, but also a bit of political intrigue. Their small band of three which includes Buffy, a genius at technology, are chosen to follow Senator Ryman’s path to the White House. You will find yourself cheering for them as they encounter many obstacle’s while following Senator Ryman.
I fell in love with the characters but also with the storyline. Mira Grant easily explains how the zombies came about and what people did afterward. She didn’t miss a step! Shaun being an Irwin doesn’t just deal with zombies but loves to get as close as possible while video taping the entire thing for those fans that stay safely behind locked doors and you’ll be happy that you’re safely tucked away just reading a book as they encounter more and more difficult situations, all for their blog, for us, for the Senator, for the truth!
What I recommend while reading this: time! I couldn’t put this book down. Make sure you have the time to get through both books without much interruption. You definitely won’t want to sleep.
These are books that I can see reading and re-reading over and over again. The plot is intense, the characters are crazy, and Mira Grant’s writing is fantastic!
