#BookReview – The Feed by Nick Clark Windo #NeedTheFeed

34326012Goodreads Blurb: It makes us. It destroys us. The Feed is everywhere. It can be accessed by anyone, at any time. Every interaction, every emotion, every image can be shared through it.

Tom and Kate use The Feed, but they have resisted addiction to it. And this will serve them well when The Feed collapses.

Until their six-year-old daughter, Bea, goes missing.

Because how do you find someone in a world devoid of technology? And what happens when you can no longer trust that your loved ones are really who they claim to be?

My Review

Wow what an outstanding read this one was with The Pigeonhole. This has got to be the most interactive one so far, with the author chatting to us about the book and our thoughts on what was going on. And to think I almost gave up on it when it became very dark at one point.

I like technology and love how it keeps me connected with family and friends around the world. I also love how I’ve made new online friends through the book blogging community and would miss reading your blog posts and messing around on Twitter if the internet went bang one day.

I would not like to live connected to the Feed like Tom and Kate are at the start of the book, it would be too much for me. I’m not good at multi-tasking so I know my brain wouldn’t cope with being online constantly with no opportunity for my own thoughts and space.

This book took me on quite a journey and really made me think about the use of technology today and how it might be used in the future. I didn’t realise how dark this book would get and that it was more horror than scifi. I think if I’d known that I wouldn’t have joined in with this, as horror is definitely not my thing. Having said that I’m really glad I did read it as I really did enjoy the story and the interaction on The Pigeonhole. The story made feel very uncomfortable at times, especially about my time spent on social media and my reliance on the internet for so much in my daily life.

I definitely recommend this if you enjoyed your dystopian books on the dark side.

    Loved the review! The book is super creepy, isn’t it- I didn’t really like the ending, though, I thought it was a bit rushed. But the plot twist in the middle!!!
