TEASER TUESDAY: The Feed by Nick Clark Windo

Teaser Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme hosted by
It is very easy to play along:
• Grab your current read and open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• Share the title & author, too, so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Here are my teasers this month:
“When he calls for them, they take a while to emerge. They see their own fear reflected in one another’s eyes. They see the dirt on one another’s faces and where the tears have run rivulets through it..”
The Feed by Nick Clark Windo
Published by Headline Publishing Group (25th, January 2018)
‘A chilling, dystopian page-turner with a twist
that will make your head explode’
THE FEED by Nick Clark Windo is a startling and timely debut which presents a world as unique and vividly imagined as STATION ELEVEN and THE GIRL WITH ALL THE GIFTS.
Tom and Kate's daughter turns six tomorrow, and they have to tell her about sleep.
If you sleep unwatched, you could be Taken. If you are Taken, then watching won't save you.
Nothing saves you.
Your knowledge. Your memories. Your dreams.
If all you are is on the Feed, what will you become when the Feed goes down?
For Tom and Kate, in the six years since the world collapsed, every day has been a fight for survival. And when their daughter, Bea, goes missing, they will question whether they can even trust each other anymore.
The threat is closer than they realise...

My Thoughts:
With blurb likening it to ‘Station Eleven’, rave reviews, and huge publicity drive, this one grabbed my full attention.
I must admit that it hasn’t had the immediate impact that ‘Station Eleven’ had on me regarding the emotional involvement with its characters thus far, but at 20% anything can happen.
