Feed - M T Anderson - Aug 08

I read this book in the summer of 2008 because it was recommended by many folks online.

It is based in the future. People have this thing planted in their heads that gives them access to an Internet like system at all times. They can communicate through messaging, see websites, look up facts, find places, and get bombarded with advertisements for things the "feed" thinks they would like based on their past purchases and interests.

Well, not all goes well. The characters get hacked. One character has a problem with the feed and ends up dying.

What does it come down too? I am not a real sci-fi reader, but this didn't stink too bad. I do know that I never want a "feed" in my head.
