Novel Assignment 5

689 words - 3 pages

Feed’s rigor wasn’t easy for any means. The vocabulary wasn’t necessarily hard but the content throughout the book was confusing. I had to reread certain chapters throughout the book so I could get a better grasp on exactly what was going on. I liked how the chapter titles sort of showed what the chapter was going to be about as Kylie Barclay mentioned in our group discussion questions for Feed.

In our society today technology is almost everywhere you look. Many people in the generations that did not grow up with technology believe it is not good for the youth. They believe technology allows for information to be too easily accessed.

This makes Feed relevant to our society because in Feed Titus has a transmitter that is directly implanted into his brain. The “feed” sends information to his brain without having to learn it. This causes him to be addicted to the feed because he can barely think for himself due to being so dependent on this transmitter. Being dependent on the feed is scary for a society, if the youth loses their ability to read and write since information is given to them, it is going to impact all areas of life. This teaches the youth they do not have to put in any work to learn information because it is just being given to them. I truly believe our technology as of now is nothing like the transmitter in Feed. We are not even close to a feed yet, even with our constant access to information. We...

After previewing the novel I think this is a chance I may enjoy the book as I understand the position of being misunderstood.
