As the bloggers wield the newfound power of new media, they tangle with the CDC, a scheming vice presidential candidate, and mysterious conspirators who want more than the Oval Office. Shunning misogynistic horror tropes in favor of genuine drama and pure creepiness, McGuire has crafted a masterpiece of suspense with engaging, appealing characters who conduct a soul-shredding examination of what's true and what's reported.
All rights reserved. While the past few years have seen no shortage of new takes on the zombie genre, critics thought that Feed broke away from the shuffling horde.
They appreciated the care Grant took in building a detailed world, noting how she infused originality into genre elements like the vaccine gone bad.
Some reviewers criticized this extensive exposition, and while none of them were ever bored by the world Grant describes, they questioned whether it was realistic for her characters to have such excellent recall of the apocalypse. Nevertheless, critics recommended Feed as a title that should entertain even those who are not normally fans of the SF or horror genre.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. And zombies.
Although they worry that it may influence their reporting slightly, it's a chance they are willing to take because it's hard for them to turn down such a lucrative offer. This could be their big shot at attracting a larger audience and becoming the next Masons. A wall. The events are frighteningly similar to the current climate in many ways. That's what this series does so well.
It feels substantive, believable.. Which it just may be, if we don't rise up.. Feedback is a fantastic addition to the Newsflesh series. It added more insight into the post-Rising world and didn't feel repetitive at all. It was one of the most progressive SFF novels I have ever read, which never once felt forced. Because diversity isn't something that is forced. It just is. It is a mirror of the world today. Of real people. Gay, genderfluid, black, an Irish immigrant..
Almost every character was as diverse as the next and it is just so incredibly refreshing. Representation matters so fucking much.
Feedback is the perfect blend of zombies, science, gore and political intrigue. A bloody fast-paced, glorious installment in the Newsflesh world. More than anything, I wanted to live. Zombie attacks, politics and the crew itself took us on a wild and crazy tale filled with danger, truths, lies and loss. It's what people remember when the dust dies down" I really enjoyed the diverse dynamics of this team. First, we have Ben Ross the Newsie. He is straight-laced and the leader.
Next, there is Ash North the Irwin who teases zombies and follows her hunches. Mat Newson who is the group Techie and a makeup artist. Rounding up the group is Audrey Wen a Fictional. Feedback is told through Ash, a saucy, redheaded kick-ass Irwin. Ash is complicated, refreshingly honest and showed all the complexities and human factors of the team, world and events that unfold.
She would bait zombies, worry about her bottom showing in her sundress and mentally hash out immortality all at the same time. I loved her; she is the feminine version of Shaun with Georgina Mason's attitude. In addition to the tale we get the crews stories and I loved how diverse and complicated they are. The synopsis refers to them as scrappy underdogs and I loved that.
The relationship between them particularly Ben, Ash and Audrey is unique. Mat is not gender specific and is referred to as they. Looking for diversity? This team has it all! Their pasts hold secrets and each has a completely different personality but as a team, they work.
Their friendship and emotional attachments felt genuine. Ash and the team begin to suspect these attacks are not coincidental. The more Ash digs the more complicated and dangerous things become. Grant delivered intense scenes,and revelations that kept me emotionally invested. Reader beware, while Feedback takes place during the same timeline as Feed it is full of spoilers for those who have not read the trilogy.
For fans, hoping to see beloved character, we do hear mention of Masons and other beloved characters but this is not their story. Copy provided by publisher. This review was originally posted on Caffeinated Book Reviewer Mar 01, Celine rated it liked it Shelves: I'm afraid that I have to agree with what other reviewers have said about this book. Feedback is a companion novel to the Newsflesh trilogy, one of my favourite series of all time. This book follows a different blogger team on the other end of the political spectrum.
Again, the team consists of an Irwin, two Newsies, and a Fictional. The issue is that the reader already I'm afraid that I have to agree with what other reviewers have said about this book. The issue is that the reader already knows what's going on in the background of the story - and I definitely would recommend reading Feedback AFTER completing the main trilogy, because it contains spoilers for the main novels - and there is little mystery.
No matter how many zombies one throws at a cast of characters, no matter how lovely the diversity rep is in this book, in a way it feels like I had read this book before. And while I enjoyed the new characters, their dynamics weren't complex enough to keep me interested. Feedback deserves a massive cheer, however, for being the first traditionally published book I ever read that has a genderfluid person as main character, who is consistently referred to as "they". It's one little step towards normalizing non-binary gender, and I love Ms McGuire for taking it.
Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy: Medical paranoia and zombie based intrigue make for an exciting novel that brings back the excitement of reading the first three books in the series. I was a bit worried about reading a story set during a time I had already fully explored, but the viewpoints and action were separate enou Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy: Newsies and Irwins.
Newsies write factual reports and dig up data. Irwins strap on cameras and go into zombie infested places, producing exciting shows for the masses who are mostly too afraid to leave the safety of their house, even with the mandatory blood tests at nearly every door. The zombie virus is in everyone. Anyone can amplify at any moment. Most mammals over a certain weight can also spontaneously amplify, like cows, sheep and bears. This has made everyone quite paranoid of crowds, which makes political rallies particularly scary places… Especially when someone starts targeting them.
There is never a gap in the security protocols to make way for plot, and everyone is aware how quickly any blood spilt can lead to full bleach-scented decontamination. The writing is good enough though that the security works with the plot, either heightening the drama or causing the characters to find workarounds: Fifteen people will never make it through in time.
The characters were varied, almost to the point of distraction, but they all worked really well together and I enjoyed meeting all of them. Like in the original books, the blogging team is a good mix of Newsies, Irwins and Fictionals. Fictionals are people who write fiction, aiming for content that is more interesting and exciting than the real world outside, which is difficult when the world outside includes zombies, you know.
Aug 21, Merrin rated it did not like it Shelves: You know what, I'm calling it. I'm adding it to "read" because there's not an option for "abandoned because it sucks. Show instead of tell. Georgia, Sal from Parasitology and now this girl, who is supposed to be from Ireland but other than sometimes remarking about her own accent, doesn't come across as Irish at all.
I've already forgotten her name. Like unless you're feeding pithy one liners to a time traveler who is surprised by all the zombies then what the f are you doing.
View all 8 comments. Dec 13, Lexxi Kitty rated it liked it Shelves: At a rating of 3. The book started off strong — the book opens, if I recall correctly, with the lead character perched on top of a statue like a bird — for a really long time.
The police kept driving by while Ash, that woman on the statue, was sitting on the statue. Eventually the police stop to question her, and she uses her press badge to make them continue on their way — for, you see, the press have certain privileges not seen by the common man it is otherwise illegal to loiter, and while that type of thing is on many law statutes today, it tends to only be used in certain circumstances —it really gets used here, though, because this is a world filled with zombies.
It is just too dangerous to loiter. Eventually the funeral guests leave, get in their cars, and rush out. And, even more eventually, that husband fella, Ben, comes out. He stops to banter with Ash, then make a call. As might be expected in this type of situation, Ben and Ash get swarmed by mobs of zombies because Ben is too stupid to get into cars and pay attention to the world around him.
Luckily for him, Ash is there to save him. See, beginning starts off strong. Lesbian main character? Ireland, apparently, has rocketed back from any progressive stances it has taken in our world to one of ultra-conservativism, ultra-religious, ultra-women-are-for-making-babies.
And Ash wants nothing to do with that world. Simple enough: From that moment on — being told stuff — to everything that came after that point — everything just became too absurd to be acceptable or readable. That would have been a crap ending, but by that point I was ready for things to be over. I loved every bit of it!
There are two sides to every story, and this one will show the story from the first book in a different way. With new characters, new teams, new things, and with a few older things thrown in, but very little. That was what I was worried about at first. That this would just be the same story as the first one, just with newer characters. But it is totally different from that. We never even get to see the characters from the first books.
We do hear about them, or read about them mostly in disdain as our team isn't really happy with that team , but that is it actually. This is a whole new story, still set at the same world, the same time, but with a different candidate and a different team.
I loved each and everyone on this team. Though I have to say I was a bit annoyed with Mat. Not because I can't comprehend that people might want those pronouns, but more because it just looked weird in the story, and it really distracted me.
I had to keep reading because I thought we had new characters instead of that Mat person. I would have loved to see those. They sound wonderful. I also do wonder if this character would have been added back when the first books came out, or if it is something that I see happening more often: I would say more, but I will just leave it at that. I don't mean anything bad with it, but, nah, I will just stop here.
Ash, she was definitely the best character of the whole new character set. She was snarky, smart, awesome, sweet, cute, kick-ass, and she was a perfect example of an Irwin. I loved her relationship with Audrey, they really match together so well!
I loved how sweet she was with Audrey, though how she also felt pain because she knew, her being an Irwin, that it might turn to heartbreak. I loved how dedicated she was, how she was the one who always kept a close eye out during the presidential stuff. How she was always the one to figure out stuff, she was the one who had to fight.

I loved the fact she is Irish, you could really tell she was from there. So many little things that told us she was that. I could go on for hours about her, but I think I will just keep it at what I wrote. Ben was a really sweet guy, though I did feel sorry for him that he was still married to Ash for reasons you will find out in the book , and that Ash didn't want to divorce yet also for reasons. He has been with her for years, and I am sure he must have been lonely.
He did try to date, but well I did like him, he was the more serious part in the the team, and he fitted the role of Newsie perfectly. He really researched everything, thoroughly, deeply, until he found every little scrap.
He was also sweet, kind, friendly. Audrey, a wonderful girl who is the Fictional of the team, but you quickly find out there is more to this girl than it seems. She isn't just a Fictional, she has a whole backstory that was pretty awesome.
We don't find it out immediately, just hear snippets, and hints, the real moment of reveal isn't until later, and I did love it was added at that moment, it fitted perfectly.
I did feel sorry for her, she fell in love with an Irwin, knowing full well that she might not have long with this girl. I didn't always like her, especially during one scene, I was frustrated with her for wishing Ash to do that. She should have understood that you can't ask this of someone. Maybe if they were alone, but if they are in a group, you can't just say that. I can imagine why she said it though, but I did think it was annoying, especially considering she was still pissed off about it afterwards.
The zombies are lovely creepy again. I do like that the world is apparently a bit safer, but yet, not safe enough to just walk around without keeping a close eye on everything that is happening. Before you know it the zombies will be there. It must be terrifying, and I can imagine that people might stay in homes, or ride protective rides.
We already knew quite a lot of what was going on at the presidential race, but we find out even more in this book. This team dives even deeper into it. It was definitely awesome, though I also felt sorry for the team that they had to go through all that because of what they discovered. Even in a zombie world the world is still corrupt as hell.
There are also various other characters that I loved a whole lot, and that I really wouldn't mind seeing more of. Maybe in a short story? The story is at times a bit slow-paced, but then picks up so much when something happens. It is like being in a rollercoaster, at times you are climbing up to the top, and then you suddenly fall down with super speed.
It is amazing. Like the other books in this series each chapter brings a new blog post or story. We switch between each of the characters, though Mat surely gets the smallest parts. Out of all the blogposts I think Ash's was the best.
I love her cynical view on the world. What more? Mm, well I laughed, I cried, I shouted, the book sure brought out a lot of emotions. This book was super fun, and I would definitely recommend it. Review first posted at https: Jan 09, Devann rated it liked it Shelves: I know that the biggest complaint for this book is 'it's just like the original series but with different characters' and also 'there is no way characters in the other books wouldn't have known about this stuff' and I mean I really enjoyed most of this book.
I absolutely loved the characters and I think Seanan is very good at writing diverse characters and also using them as a mouthpiece for different issues without necessarily making it seem like that is what she's doing.
It's always integrated very well and is very organic and relatable and I really appreciate that. She is just so spot on with so many issues and I really appreciate her writing for that. True the plot in this book in particular wasn't that strong and was mostly a rehash of the earlier series, but the characters more than made up for it in my opinion.
The entire genre has just turned into a bullshit macho power trip fantasy and it's awful.
