To reply to what commentator Wonkata___ said:
From limited knowledge of the book (first two chapters in online preview), I think _Feed_'s style of five-word sentences is modeled after that of Faulkner, but I don't think Anderson could possibly carry the "stream of consciousness" as well as Faulkner did to add depth to his work. (Faulkner used this Modernist format to better develop symbols, themes, and allusions.) My first impression is that this "stream of consiousness" style (within _Feed_) is meant to better reflect the fast-paced, perhaps simplistic, way in which the main character is thinking. While Faulkner allows for comments on class, the power of words, the selfish nature of humans, the breakdown of morality and traditional ontological ground, I feel that, again, Feed's narration is geared more to emphasize the power the Feed has had on society, perhaps to serve as an Orwellian warning. (Banners come to MIND). It might also be noted that in the world Anderson has created, speech and text is irrelevant, so really the only way to write the book is in thoughts, and most thoughts, when imposed on paper, are confusing, poorly organized, in vernacular, and lacking in substance. I can't really say more without reading the book. Sorry if this response is boring, or too "heavy" for the nature of this forum. As "stream of consciousness" does, I have a tendancy to (meg) confuse and scare away the average reader.
