Publisher's Summary

A new beginning for Mira Grant's New York Times best-selling Newsflesh series!
There are two sides to every story.
We had cured cancer. We had beaten the common cold. But in doing so we unleashed something horrifying and unstoppable. The infection spread, leaving those afflicted with a single uncontrollable impulse: feed.
Now, 20 years after the Rising, a team of scrappy underdog reporters relentlessly pursue the facts while competing against brother-and-sister blog superstars the Masons.
Surrounded by the infected, and facing more insidious forces working in the shadows, they must hit the presidential campaign trail and uncover dangerous truths. Or die trying.
Feedback is a full-length Newsflesh novel that overlaps the events of the acclaimed first novel in the series, Feed, and offers a new entry point to this thrilling and treacherous world.

What the Critics Say

"The strength of this tale lies in the diverse cast, their deep ties to one another, and Grant's ability to surprise the reader with emotional gut punches." (Publishers Weekly)
"A U.S. presidential campaign set in a zombie-infested future bears an eerie resemblance to the way we live now. Simply jump in and enjoy...a whip-smart thriller overflowing with sharp ideas and social commentary." (Kirkus )

Decent story, not sure if really needed

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No. The narrator's accent, while appropriate for the character, made it rough for listening in longer batches than a few hours.


Any additional comments?

I liked having more story in the Newsflesh universe, but to be honest this doesn't appear to really add much to the series. I still enjoyed it but was looking for something else.

The worst narration I've ever heard

What disappointed you about Feedback?

I've listened to over 50 audiobooks and this stands out as the worst narration. I don't usually have strong opinions about it, but my god. There's a lot of the protaganist's inner dialogue and for whatever reason the narrator decided to draw out nearly every vowel sound. Ash is supposed to be this Irwin badass - and yet every thought is expressed like a plea. Listening to any other character was a relief.


Would you be willing to try another book from Mira Grant? Why or why not?

I've listened to all of the Mira Grant books and will do so so in the future as along as there's a different narrator.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

She made me hate the main character with her incessant vowel dragging.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Ear pain.
