Emptiness is a recurring them in M.T Anderson’s, Feed, as is the future. It’s a disposable world requiring little thought from people of all ages. Would you agree the future described in Feed is pretty bleak, even though nothing is required of people except going to school to become better shoppers? How are we like the characters described in Feed ? Do you think it’s possible to stop the future? Think about cell-phone-no one told you to buy one carry it with you at all time-yet that is exactly what has happened. Soon, people will line up purchase a phone-feed chip for infants. Impossible, you say. How much of Anderson’s fictional world has already come true? Are we all in the same metaphoric boat described by Titus ? How can we fill it without a future like Feed to guide us? What do you need ?
Everything you ever wanted awaits you desire is a thing of the past. You dreams were assembled and delivered faster than this was written.
