In the time of zombies, security guards carry portable blood testing units, vehicle caravans are bullet proof, and you wear your kevlar under your evening wear. To add to the fun, Georgia has a rather unique medical condition: she has a version of the virus in her eyes, making her very sensitive to light, and making her test a false positive on some of the cheaper virus testing gear.
For a bit there, I got annoyed that her eye condition seemed to come into every single conversation, and every single interaction with nearly every other character. But then I began viewing it as a handicap, and I realized that for someone who is blind, or someone who is in a wheelchair, their handicap probably is a part of every aspect of their lives, especially when they may need to get up or down a flight of stairs, fill out a form, or reach the right button in an elevator.
And then there is the last trick that Mira Grant pulls. Feed has interesting characters and an fascinating, unique premise.
Deadline (Newsflesh #2) by Mira Grant
I loved the first hundred pages. I appreciated the pop-culture jokes, I loved the medical infodumps.
And I almost cried at the end. But man, those four hundred pages between the beginning and the end sure took forever.
Their discovering that some of the people who work for them are maybe a little deeper than everyone thought. Random interactions with zombies, random interactions with humans. Politicians smiling and shaking hands and getting interviewed. Georgia having to explain her eye condition, again. More blood tests.
As the bloggers leave, they are attacked, and Georgia is shot with a tranquiliser dart containing the live virus. Rick escapes with a copy of the group's evidence just before a zombie outbreak is instigated, and Shaun helps Georgia expose the conspiracy through one last blog post.
She then begins amplifying, forcing Shaun to execute her.

The novel's narration then changes to Shaun's perspective. He rallies Ryman's security detail to help contain the outbreak, then breaks into the convention centre to confront Ryman and Tate.
Tate takes Ryman's wife hostage with a syringe of the zombie virus, claiming his actions were part of a plot using fear of the zombies to reshape America into a more faith-based society. Then the governor injects himself instead, and Shaun shoots him to prevent zombification. The inspiration to write Feed came from the combination of McGuire's interests in horror movies and virology.
Despite establishing the above-mentioned background, McGuire struggled with the plot until a friend suggested using a presidential campaign as a framing device.
Zack Handlen's review of the novel for The A. Writing for Strange Horizons , Jonathan McCalmont praised Feed as a "delight", highlighting its overall structure, well written action and dialogue, and detailed worldbuilding.
The fact that Feed and its characters acknowledge previous zombie fiction is praised by Schlock Mercenary webcartoonist Howard Tayler. The new ending starts shortly after Ryman kicks Georgia, Shaun, and Rick out of the Sacramento event, and diverges with the virus dart hitting Shaun instead of Georgia.
Georgia and Rick retreat inside the van to post their findings on Tate and the conspiracy, while Shaun dies defending them from the outbreak. Georgia confronts and kills Tate, then commits suicide a week later, unable to live in a world without Shaun. The perspective changes to Rick's, broken and alcoholic, as he organizes the Masons' funerals.
He notes that the conspiracy may not have ended with Tate, but "someone else was going to have to save the world next time. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Feed First edition worldwide cover.

Maybe Grant is under the illusion this is a flaw in some way much like apparently being clumsy and falling over a lot is, ala Bella Swan but it's obviously another way of showing how cool Georgia is. Very exposition-y.
