Feed, by M.T. Anderson, is a futuristic, science fiction novel, in which a society exists where every member has a computer transmitter, or feed, implanted in his or her brain at birth. The society is full of flaws—consumerism runs the population and big businesses control the people’s minds. The feeds are heavily relied upon for daily living. When the feeds stop or malfunction, life ceases to exist. The people love their implants and believe life was arduous before the feeds. “The braggest thing about the feed . . . is that it knows everything you want and hope for, sometimes before you even know what those things are” (p. 9).
