Review: Feed

Feed by M.T. Anderson
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Awesome characterization, but do not read this book. It has incredible voice, but you have to listen to this one. It’s a whole different experience, because all the advertisements and reports that come through the Feed were created for the audiobook, with background music, announcer voices, sound effects, and more.

I felt like I was actually experiencing the feed, and I can’t imagine that reading the book would have the same effect. Also, the main character, Titus, has a a style of telling the story that sounds fantastic and strangely charming when read aloud by David Aaron Baker, but I think it might have driven me crazy if I’d have read it myself (like, like, like). It’s hard to explain, but go listen to the sample to see what I mean.

Here’s the first line, which drew me in right away: “We went to the moon to have fun, but the moon turned out to completely suck.”
