Here's the thing to know about Feed: it's not really a zombie story. The zombies are there, sure, but they're an aspect of the world-building, not a major part of the story. It's really about politics and media, and the way they feed off each other to create a culture of terror that I felt was quite timely.
[June 2012] I just re-read Feed, since I finally have the rest of the trilogy and I wanted to get back into the world before reading the last two books. My first review is a little short and cold - what I really loved most this time around were the characters. I love how real Georgia and Shaun feel; I love that it's a book where "love" doesn't mean "two heterosexual people making babies". I also love how the author manages the pace of the book - the stakes just keep getting raised, but never in a way that feels manipulative or rings false. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this one to almost anybody.
