So says Titus, whose ability to read, write, and even think for himself has been almost completely obliterated by his feed, a transmitter implanted directly into his brain. Feeds are a crucial part of life for Titus and his friends. After all, how else would they know where to party on the moon, how to get bargains at Weatherbee & Crotch, or how to accessorize the mysterious lesions everyone s been getting? But then Titus meets Violet, a girl who cares about what s happening to the world and challenges everything Titus and his friends hold dear. A girl who decides to fight the feed.
My Opinions (SPOILER FREE):
This book was very interesting and intriguing to read. It was cool to see the world in this futuristic setting, because even though it was very different than how the world is now, there were some very similar things. I think this book is similar to Fahrenheit 451 because it teaches us that if we’re not careful, we will end up in a society that is completely controlled by technology.
Some parts of the story were confusing, because I didn’t understand some of the terminology. On the other hand though, it was kind of fun to try and decipher the new words.
The main character was not terrible, but it was just really hard to connect with him. The ending also wasn’t very satisfying, and it was kind of confusing.
