The Feed by Nick Clark Windo
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Four stars until the very end, which was really (to me) disappointing.
There's the Feed, an all immersive version of Augmented Reality mixed with social media, and one day it goes down. Life as we know it is disrupted, because thanks to the Feed, people can't figure out how to survive without it. A few years later, things are even worse; and, somehow, there are aliens among us. Tom and Kate are among the survivors, hiding out (Tom hiding even more because his family created the Feed, which he rebelled against) and trying to survive. It doesn't go better from there.... or does it? The twist at the end was confusing and rushed, not to mention feels forced in that "oh, I need a twist" way. But until then? Great read.
