    The prologue of The Feed is a snapshot of future society just as it begins to crumble. As they spend the evening in a restaurant, Tom is trying to persuade his wife Kate to switch off her Feed, if only for a few minutes. The Feed is an invention that's transformed human life, making it...

    I started this book beginning of March, I?ve just finished it now (mid-May)? I admit I had a very hard time staying focused and motivated to read it. Perhaps because of the absence of chapters (instead, we have scenes with breaks, and some of the scenes are pretty long), which was ...

    The Feed connected the world, making everything instantly accessible in your mind, thanks to an implant. The implant gave people immediate access to news, social media, and communication. Even memories could be stored for later access. Turning off your feed and "going slow"? living i...

    I found this to be an extremely enjoyable and dark debut, that centres around The Feed and how it had controlled people but when the system went down, society fell apart and those left are trying to make sense of the world they now find themselves living in. 'The Feed' is a system v...

    The Feed does not create any physical sensation, its an implant, bio-tech with no battery source, the human is the power source. And then? A collapse all feeds stopped devastation upon the earth people scattered some survivors and some taken the characters within this tale on ...

    Imagine that there was a single social media network, far more invasive than what we know now. In The Feed everyone is connected to everything. You can speak to friends and family immediately; all knowledge is available to you, humanity lives in a golden age. People?s emotions don?...

    3 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum https://bibliosanctum.com/2018/03/25/... We?ve all heard the cautionary tales involving social media, about the dangers of being constantly plugged in. Nick Clark Windo?s dark thriller debut takes this idea even further, imagining a future where...

    Whoa, this book is just begging for a big screen adaptation! The idea that social media platforms such as twitter and Facebook are implanted in your brain so that you have immediate access to everyone?s thoughts immediately is both mind blowing and yet terrifyingly possible given ...

    RTC Elements of stories like Walking Dead and others that I can't mention because of spoilers... but, you know what, not entirely engaging or amazing, even though I quite enjoy the shows and books that clearly inspired this one. The writing is... fine. But the character building ...

    So anyone who thought Tyrell Johnson had to dodge many Cormac McCarthy comparisons along the denuded road of his early 2018 novel The Wolves of Winter, had better be prepared for Nick Clark Windo's artful minefield dance and dodge in The Feed. This book is almost an exercise in 21st-ce...

    I've tried reading this twice now but again, and for the last time, had to admit defeat, abandoning it at p.79. The premise is too unbelievable and implausible, the characters too difficult to care about. ...

    What a perfect book to finish on the first day of 2018. The Feed is the ultimate dystopian novel, so close to the present that we automatically draw parallels with our own lives. So glued to our smartphones, constantly being fed data and information and adverts. If you liked this, you'...

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com The Feed is a really unique, interesting dystopian-style novel (I won't say 'thriller' as I don't think it's really that kinda book, and I'll explain why) which I enjoyed reading. I felt that it was fairly slow to start with, taking time to bui...

    A stunning debut! I absolutely loved The Feed and have had to leave my review for a day to get over the book hangover it gave me. I was also left with that itchy brain feeling when a book totally gets under your skin and explores the darker locations of your imagination bringing to the...

    "The days harden. They stay bright but the air becomes unkind." I really enjoyed reading The Feed! It was an intriguing dystopian story, and it had some elements from other stories I've enjoyed like Station Eleven, Battlestar Galactica, The Host, Black Mirror, Superman: Red Son, St...

    The Feed, by Nick Clark Windo, is set in a world where communication and curation of experiences has moved almost entirely on line. To enable individuals to manage this, a brain implant has been developed that allows users to access data and upload content using their thought processes...

    Not my usual fare, I know, but when I read the blurb of The Feed and when I witnessed the fantastic PR stunt the folks at Headline pulled the day they revealed this book on Twitter, I knew I HAD to read it. (And if you?re wondering what the stunt was, the Headline twitter ?feed? ...

    The Feed is a solid, well-written, but pretty traditional dystopian novel. Definitely recommended for dystopia fans! I expected something more ground-breaking from it, and maybe more powerful or adventure driven, but it's more of a slice-of-life. However, I enjoyed this book, and I...

    One sitting (almost) read, I devoured this story barely putting it down. Great concept, great execution, plenty of book trauma with a huge emotional rush of an ending. Left me vaguely tearful. Will be teaser reviewed during my "Ones to Watch in 2018" feature running at the moment. B...

    The Feed is, to put it simply, an exceptionally elaborate and advanced form of social media. But instead of on an iPhone or a laptop, it?s all ingrained in your head and you can access anything, anyone and everything instantaneously. It?s addictive and life-altering and it?s gone...

    Given the way it seems that most people spend their lives attached to their phones, this was a very good premise. Some elements reminded me of classic sci-fi shows and even Hugh Howey's Wool. On the whole it was a very entertaining read. Look out for it next year! ...

    **5 Goodreads Stars** "Who did you first share your thoughts with? It was the most intimate feeling, wasn't it? Nothing between you, no way to lie, just pure and perfect thinking. All of us, plaited together." "The space we create, that we forge with our lives - that's what we h...

    It's an epic concept - I am still processing what I've read it's that unique and scarily possible in this crazy world we live in. What would happen if our brains worked like facebook feeds? If anything we spoke about ended up accessible to everyone? What happens when you turn off the f...

    I promised my daughter recently that I would try to read more books in her preferred genre and she would then agree to read a few more psychological thrillers! She reads a lot of apocalyptic and dystopian fiction and often has a few zombies running around her kindle as well! So when I ...

    Strong, post-apocalyptic read with an excellent, highly original concept at its heart, THE FEED is atmospheric and thought provoking. The characters are not your 'usual' and I really enjoyed the flipping between Tom's and Kate's POVs, plus The Feed 'updates' were particularly well done...

    The Feed is a futuristic look at something that could possibly happen. An implant that gives wearers 24-7 access to news feeds, people's lives, their feelings, where physical communication has been taken over by virtual communication. Tom and Kate are the main focus of this story, To...

    Thanks to William Morrow for the advanced copy in exchange for my honest review! Who loves dystopian novels? Who wants something a little different and more unique in this genre? Well, THE FEED by Nick Clark Windo is exactly that. It's being compared to Mad Max meets THE GIRL WITH ...

    I've read a lot of horror books and not really been scared but whilst this doesn't fit that category social media is everywhere and the idea of an apocalypse occurring when everything is switched off is something I can actually see happening and find quite scary. Whilst the switching o...
