Synopsis and Summary of the Dystopian Novel ‘’ Feed’

***Warning Spoilers Below This Point***

The plot revolves around two characters Titus and Violet Durn. The former is intrigued by the latter’s questioning attitude and while they are at a club their feeds are hacked by an anti-feed organization. While feeds take time to repair they develop a romantic relationship. The next thing we know is they make plans of resisting the feed and then the story takes an emotional turn as the characters face the reality where they find out their personal lives are being looked into by the organization which controls their feeds.

When you reach the climax of the novel the end is almost predictable. The start is good and creative but the story doesn’t really have a strong holding. However, it does have a strong impact on the reader when it comes to imagining a more restrictive and controlled life with regard to your thoughts and memories. Living in this age it is not that hard for a reader to imagine the plot in the book turning to reality.

The story compiles three aspects which include a thriller sequence, adventure, and emotion. The characters are well worked on with regard to defining boundaries of emotional states and consumer behaviour but it can be said that they have shallow personalities. Anderson makes the reader imagine this fictional life and at the same time provides a thought-provoking experience.

Final Thoughts on the Dystopian Novel “Feed’’.

The novel introduces the idea of sharing memories through a feed and also the idea of telling stories in picturized forms like movie trailers. There are a large plethora of imaginative ideas that a reader comes across. The use of slang language has made it a bit difficult for the reader to understand many dialogues in the right context. There is a hint of discomfort which is not only experienced by the characters but is also experienced by the reader throughout. But this again is the beauty of the book; it sends shivers down your spine. Will I read this novel again? Unlikely.
