I'm nearly finished with Feed, which I started because my daughter read it (or, more accurately, devoured it) for her Honors English 9 class. Once past the frequent use of the word "like" and all the swear words (not my thing), I'm devouring it too. I do like young adult lit; add a dystopian theme and I'm hooked. Plus I needed to break out of the box after the last book I read, Hotel at the Corner of Bitter and Sweet. (It was bitter! and sweet!)
With only about 20 pages to go, I feel like I'm on the backside of a hill, careening towards a turbid pool of muck at the bottom. And yet, I also think that would be more satisfying than if the main character changed directions and redeemed himself (allowing me to land in a field of daisies instead). Muck is more thought-provoking. America, is this where you are really headed?
But since I haven't finished it yet, that's not a spoiler, right?
The Summer Reading Program has begun...get ready to send your book lists August 15-31. Happy reading!
