Title: Feed
Author: M. T. Anderson

I read the book Feed by M. T. Anderson looking forward to it. I'm a fan of a little bit of science fiction in my books and when it said "fights the feed", I pictured a book like Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. (I loved those books!) But, boy, was I wrong! This book had tons of unnecessary swearing, or so I felt. And I was 3/4 through the book and was still clueless about the plot. This book's ending was sweet but that was one of the few highlights in the book. Once and awhile I would chuckle but overall I thought it wasn't a great book. I couldn't understand how it was a finalist in a national book award competition. And it just never is a good sign when you forget the main characters name for half of the book. I didn't like any of the characters because they were so self consumed and jerks. I just did NOT like this book. :(
