hey...that was a GREAT book. he uses "bad words" because it's supposed to be told by a teenager. the fake words are because its like hundreds of years in the future; slang changes. the thing about the book though, is that it's not really about the future. its about now and what the world is like. sort of like the crucible.

yea i read feed for a literature circle in my english class. I really hated it actully. i thought it was very poorly written. A million pointless thing happen and there isnt much of a story line. I really liked the whole concept of the feed and all but besides that it was terrible. I dont know if he was tryin to sound cool or hip but why did he use so many fake words? 2 thumbs down:(

woah new to the board, so sorry if this annoys anyone. i just finished feed yesterday. pretty heavy stuff. titus changes by uh...well he learns that the feed can be bad. he also learns that the gov't and corps and stuff hide stuff from everyone. there's something about love and appreciation in there probably too but i can't for the life of me figure it out. anyone here read the game of sunken places? the BEST book. (besides the other five million best books of course.)

I am a children's book specialist at a large corporate bookstore. I also loved The Feed. But the latest I read from m t anderson is the book that compelled me to write. That is, his young children's book, Me, All Alone, at the End Of The World. Remarkable book... I just wanted to thank him for writing a picture book that celebrates "aloneness".. glories in the feeling that some of us have of just needing to be alone, with nature for a friend, most of the time.
For, I suppose, important, developmental reasons, most books for very young children push socialization and "making friends". In this story, the little boy is perfectly happy alone, then made to feel like he is missing something. So he is slowly surrounded by people, noise, and the accompanying debris, and though he enjoys his new friends to an extent, he ends up leaving to go off and be alone on a mountain somewhere. Alone and happy. Sorry if this is too much like a book review. What I wanted to ask is, "Is there any way to reach m t himself e-mail?" thanks.
