Feed - M.T. Anderson

Feed is set in "future" earth which has been ecologically devastated and corporations rule. In this dystopian novel most of the citizens have been implanted with a chip that connects their brain to the feednet, an advanced form of internet. Through this people are able to communicate with each other, and corporations gather information on peoples' feed habits for marketing purposes. Titus and his friends meet a girl named Violet on their Spring Break vacation to the Moon. Titus and Violet begin a begin a romantic relationship, but something goes wrong with Violet's feed and her condition begins to deteriorate. Titus realizes that feed users are doomed without the feed. Anderson leaves us with a question on the table, are consumerism and technology ruining our lives?
