The Feed Reviews
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
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
Elements of stories like Walking Dead and others that I can't mention because of spoilers... but, you know what, not entirely engaging or amazing, even though I quite enjoy the shows and books that clearly inspired this one.
The writing is... fine. But the character building is pretty much non-existent, and the only character I actually related to didn't show up until around half-way through. Also... the "chapters" are hundreds of pages long, with scene breaks rather than chapter breaks... a p ...more
Not my usual fare, I know, but when I read the blurb of The Feed and when I witnessed the fantastic PR stunt the folks at Headline pulled the day they revealed this book on Twitter, I knew I HAD to read it. (And if you’re wondering what the stunt was, the Headline twitter ‘feed’ went down. Their profile picture was a solid black square, their twitter header was the same. Something had gone ‘seriously wrong’ and it was fascinating to see how people reacted. Kudos to whoever came up with the idea ...more

I received a free copy of this book courtesy of the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
The Feed starts with a prologue set before the collapse and focuses on Tom and Kate, the two main characters. Tom and Kate are going ‘slow‘ completely disconnected from the Feed, talking in the real, which doesn’t happen when you are connected to the Feed as it is that immersive, your whol ...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
I've tried reading this twice now but again, and for the last time, had to admit defeat, abandoning it at p.79. The premise is too unbelievable and implausible, the characters too difficult to care about.

The Feed is a scarily realistic, post-apocalyptic debut novel. We live in a world dominated by social media and the Internet. The first thing I always do every morning is check my phone, Facebook and Twitter and I am sure I am not alone in doing that. Once we become addicted to social media it becomes very hard to break. This is the same with The Feed in Nick Clark Windo’s debut. People are wholly dependent on it and with ...more
