This is an amazing book about a future society that we could someday be part of. Intense and frightening especially at the thought of it ever coming true. Privacy is so important to me, and if I don't get it, then there's heck that someone's going to have to pay, and knowing that about myself scares me to think of this being our future. The author did a great job of keeping up the pace to the very last page. I couldn't see the end coming, and was a bit surprised when I realized that it was near. ...more

This is a kindle edition book written by my sister, Nicole. Download for $.99 at and give it a read!

I just finished your book Nicole. Very good, by the way. I was so intrigued at the first mention of the "feeds" and how exactly that had come about. I can see the influences of books you've read on the whole idea of the book (Bradbury, for example). And it was a bit disconcerting knowing you as I do, and hearing your voice in the book. I kept thinking to myself, this is so Nikki writin

I won this on GoodReads
What happens when the cameras follow everyone; 24/7? What happens when nobody ever has a moment that is not monitored; not just by government but by anyone who wants to watch? This is the world Nicole Grotepas created in “Feed”. Not that far from the world we live in now with reality TV the opiod for the masses. She created great characters with intense passions and frustrations. Four stars for this one. Give me more.

Loved the original story. Obviously set up for a sequel at the end. Slightly bummed that there isn't enough closure to allow the book to stand on its own, but as long as the sequel is written I can satisfy my craving to know what happens next.

Unusual story, high tech, imaginative. Ending left open for a sequel, but not in a bad way. I liked it.

This book started out with the novel premise of nano-cams that watch and record everyone 24/7 for the "safety" of the country. Run by conglomerates rather than the Government and streamed (almost) live to a nation who watches these feeds like people watch the reality TV of today.

It was a pretty good story and I was willing to forgive the odd descriptiveness in the book. It was over-descriptive in parts, other parts felt like the story had been written and someone advised the author to make it mo

I picked this book up at the Salt Lake Comic Con and put it on the shelf until I had some "free time." I regret not reading it sooner. This book is really, really good. It does not bog itself down trying to explain the science behind everything but is so descriptive in its simplicity that you don't notice right away. If it feels like a mix of Harry Harrison and Robert Heinlein.

I'm passionate about human rights, animal rights, and living life with no regrets. I love how becoming a parent has deepened my devotion to making the world a better place. I do that best by crafting stories that attempt to answer hard questions--the ones I think about most--while also being entertaining and fun. I live in a landscape that reminds me of my place in the universe, under an endless s ...more
