‘Tom and Kate’s daughter turns six tomorrow, and they have to tell her about sleep. If you sleep unwatched, you could be Taken. If you are Taken, then watching won’t save you. Nothing saves you.’
‘The Feed’ is a unique, highly-imaginative, compulsive read. Every single person I have seen so far, that have experienced this book already, have raved about it, and I am joining their crew!
Nick Clark Windo has masterfully created a world that I am quite simply petrified of. Imagine if everything you know; your memories, dreams, knowledge, was backed-up on a computer feed. You can’t escape anything, every thought and idea you have could be watched and plucked out to target you. Quite scary really, and is this where modern media could be heading?!
The main question though is what happens when that Feed goes down? Who and what can you trust? Those you love are being taken in their sleep and you have to kill them before they wake. There are some heart-breaking moments and you witness people fighting for their survival, and that moment when wise beyond her years, Bea, goes missing, my heart pounded and hoped that she is as courageous as first made out.
The book flows well and as a reader you are taken on an adventure following a group of people that will do anything to continue to exist. I am not normally one for ‘post-apocalyptic’ reads but witnessing that tremendous publicity campaign, I had to get my hands on a copy and thanks to Caitlin Raynor at Headline I did!
Today is in fact The Feed’s birth-date – congratulations! So it is now available from all good bookshops so you can see for yourself what all of the fuss is about.
This book is ‘grip-lit’; gripping, fantastic and contains everything you could want and need in a book. My only niggle is that I am a lover of chapters and there aren’t any – there are sections instead! But hey, at least I am not moaning about what has been written, because there isn’t anything to moan about!
Buy and enjoy!
