IT MAKES US. IT DESTROYS US. NOW WE MUST LEARN TO LIVE
The Feed is accessible everywhere, by everyone, at any
time. It instantaneously links us to all information and
global events as they break. Every interaction, every
emotion, every image can be shared through it; it is the
essential tool everyone relies on to know and understand
the thoughts and feelings of partners, parents, friends,
children, colleagues, bosses, employees . . . in fact, of
anyone and everyone else in the world.
Tom and Kate use the Feed, but Tom has resisted its
addiction, which makes him suspect to his family. After
all, his father created it. But that opposition to
constant connection serves Tom and Kate well when the
Feed collapses after a horrific tragedy shatters the
world as they know it.
The Feedís collapse, taking modern society with it,
leaves people scavenging to survive. Finding food is
truly a matter of life and death. Minor ailments,
previously treatable, now kill. And while the collapse
has demolished the trappings of the modern world, it has
also eroded trust. In a world where survival of the
fittest is a way of life, there is no one to depend upon
except yourself . . . and maybe even that is no longer
Tom and Kate have managed to protect themselves and their
family. But then their six-year-old daughter, Bea, goes
missing. Who has taken her? How do you begin to look for
someone in a world without technology? And what happens
when you can no longer even be certain that the people
you love are really who they claim to be?
