Quotes & Awards

Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Feed
  • Intelligent and intense, a thinking-person's post-apocalyptic zombie thriller set in a fully-realized future that is both fascinating and horrifying to behold. John Joseph Adams on Feed

  • Intelligent and exciting...raises the bar for the genre. Telegraph on Deadline
  • Wry and entertaining."NPR Books on Blackout
  • While there's plenty of zombie mayhem, political snark, and pointedly funny observations here, the heart of this book is about human relationships, which are still the most important thing in the world...even in a world where you might have to shoot the person you love most in the head, just to stop them from biting off your face. Locus on Feed

    " Interesting to combine Zombies with politics. Very good story. I loved the woman narrator. The main character Georgia is fantastic she really makes you feel you're a part of what is going on. Enjoy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Esonja | 2/4/2014

    " I loved this. It is pitch-perfect ala Buffy seasons after 2001-- dark and full of absurd but terrible horrors. The lead characters are quite good, strong, and likeable. The storyline with zombie framework is Watergate election season, and the Scooby team of crack reporters is on the job. Really, this was great, and I am really looking forward to Blackout, right after World War Z. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly | 2/1/2014

    " I LOVED this book! yes, it had its lows, but it was amazing! i was in tears for the last half of the book i was so attached. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janet | 12/25/2013

    " Enjoyed all of the Feed series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lou | 12/21/2013

    " Mission accomplished! Managed to finish this today. Loved it. Was heavy going for the first half but well worth it. Gutted that I don't have the next one with me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tarrigon | 12/16/2013

    " this story has the zombies as just part of the story of the characters rather than the main feature. Either i'm not up to date on my zombie literature or this is an original take of life after zombies. Like Dark Sun Rising, I like this because it's not a romance/bodice ripper (someone used that to describe Atlas Shrugged and i almost wondered if i got the wrong book) it's about a story and the people wrapped up in it and liked it. Since this was audio, the narrator did a good job - it felt like I was listening to a good story teller telling me a story but in the first chapter, it did sound like she had a cold or was wearing her retainer - either I got used to it or it went away in later chapters-can't decide on that one but it didn't really detract from the overall storytelling. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maisie | 11/18/2013

    " Powerful book about journalism in a post-apocalyptic zombie filled world. Some things about this novel annoyed me though, but it was all-round a good read. And only 99p. Bargain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Martyn Matt | 11/18/2013

    " Shocked me when Buffy, Georgia and Lois (The Cat) Died.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fred Fenimore | 10/30/2013

    " Extraordinary book. Very creative. I see so many parallels in the various parts to the relationships between living and dead, parent and child, generation and generation. What a great book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Hartness | 10/25/2013

    " Holy crap! The best zombie book I've read, and one of the best books overall I've read in the past few years. Can't even describe how much I loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara Taylor | 10/4/2013

    " Not your typical zombie novel. There are zombies, it's post-Rising, but the world has moved on. I'm a bit of a political junkie, and this was a great book about national US politics, set in a zombie world. It's a thriller, with zombies on the side. Great reading! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilda | 2/2/2013

    " Amazingly well written for sci-fi zombie novel. Read for my book club, everyone loved it, no complaints except it's only available in MMPB. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brady | 1/22/2013

    " Good stuff. Will likely read the sequels at some point. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Polstar | 5/10/2012

    " This took me a while to get into but once I did I was hooked. Probably one of the most intense and detailed zombie/ virus books I've ever read. Am now on Book 2 :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 6/22/2011

    " Really enjoyed this. Lots of good work on how a zombie virus would actually work. Looking forward to continuing this series. "

    " I completely enjoyed this book. I don't remember reading another zombie story like this one. Can't wait to read the second in the series. "

    " Zombies & political intrigue. Could not put this down! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Matt | 5/18/2011

    " A political thriller set in a zombie-filled future in which bloggers are the real investigative journalists. Well worth a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Victoria | 5/16/2011

    " I dreamt about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 NCLit | 5/15/2011

    " One of the smartest zombie novels I've ever read. Grant paints a future that feels real (and kind of terrifying). I'm convinced that if It really happens, it will go something like this....

    Brilliant! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Vicki | 5/12/2011

    " Calling all fans of the walking dead. This book is just as exciting and well-written as "The Passage"
    by Cronin. "
