Feed by Mira Grant

Another president will be voted, who the people expect at least to manage the cause of the uncureable disease. Three journalists was granted an access of following the one of the presidential campaign, and here, their adventure will start…”
Zombies? I’m not quite sure if I love zombies, even in movies. For me, they are one of the lamest creature ever created, next to vampires(sorry for the fans of zombies and vampires).
When my bookish friend, Tina(See her review of feed here), lend me this book, I’m not sure if it will arouse my curiosity of reading a zombie book because I know that the plot will always be the same. Since Tina knows how to determine a great book and I also trust her taste in books, then I felt that I should give this book a try. After reading the book, my belief changed… and thanks to Tina for that.
As I’ve said, the plot is the same as the other zombie movies have, but the way the author wrote the book is much different, that’s why I liked Feed. The book is written in Georgia Mason’s point of view, but it is also followed by the perspective through the other character’s blog in the end of each chapter.
I love Shaun, Georgia’s brother. I love the way he talk, the way he act and the way he think. I wish I do have a brother like him. I swear, If I do have a brother like him, I’ll always spank his face and will always kick his ass!
Honestly, the book started slow and picked up on the later part, but once you got “there”, I swear, you will wish you have all the time to finish the book in one sitting. The author really amazed me on how she concocted zombie and dystopia, she must be a genius because she actually did that awesomely.
The ending is unpredictable, and you’ll be surprised that it is already happening without any warning… so be prepared before you read this novel.
If you love zombies, then you must read this book.
