Within the world of Feed, everyone is plugged in, that is, we get the latest news, shopping discounts, scores and updates, all the things we NEED to know, beamed directly into our heads. Yes that’s right, we are all plugged into the feed, thus everyone is properly INFORMED so we know how to behave and just what to buy. But, when a young teen challenges the feed and wants to unplug, the powers that be decide that is just too dangerous. Imagine the risk of a young teenager actually thinking for themselves! - MT Anderson sets up a disturbing dystopian world of tomorrow in his novel, Feed.

Book Club just started reading this novel. Mr. B has a handful of copies, otherwise check the library. This is a great young adult, dystopian novel of how wonderful, and possibly horrific the world of tomorrow can be. (3/10)
