Personally I love reading, well that is since I found my niche. Like many others I was diagnosed with Dyslexia as a child. Even owning this blog is a major accomplishment. I do owe that too those authors that have created the genre I most love… Zombies.

Mira Grant’s Feed is a series that I didn’t believe was going to appeal to me the same as Brian Keene’s novels, they were however zombies so I had to give it a try.

Plot Summary:

“Feed is set several decades after the zombie apocalypse, referred to as the Rising. Two man-made viruses (a cure for cancer and a cure for the common cold) combined to form Kellis-Amberlee, a virus that quickly infects all mammalian life. Kellis-Amberlee is normally beneficial, but death causes the virus to ‘go live’ or ‘amplify’, converting any host mammal over 40 pounds (18 kg) into a zombie. Most humans reside in tightly controlled safe zones, with rigorous blood testing and decontamination protocols used to prevent the spread of live virus. After the inaction of traditional media during the Rising, blogs and other new media have taken over as the primary source of information and entertainment; bloggers are recognized as professional journalists, with individuals specializing and identifying as ‘Newsies’ (fact-based reporting), ‘Irwins’ (named after Steve Irwin, who seek to educate and entertain by going out and “poking things with sticks”), or ‘Fictionals’ (fictional content), among others.”

My Thoughts:

Reading this novel at first started slow it was only in the second half of the book it really started to get intense. For any one interested in political books this could be an interesting read as well. For the zombie portion I found it to be quite different in comparison to other novels of the same subject. It was quite well written and led me to want to read the sequel books. Mira Grant did amazing work in this novel and it is a recommended read to anyone who enjoys zombies, apocalyptic settings and politics. This novel has earned the fresh clean diaper score of 5.
