I've read up to chapter utopia. This story is about Titus a teenager and his friends go to the moon for spring break. Everyone now has what they call a feed which is a computer chip they put into their head, he says on page 47 that it makes you super smart without even trying. This has put a stop to writing with a pen and paper in the dead language chapter page 65 Titus was shocked that Violet used a pen and paper to write down ideas, he had become so dependent on his Feed. At first Titus has withdraws not having his feed, but after a few pages be begins see what life is like without his feed, and i get the feeling that he doesn't mind it at all. I think this will play a major role later on in the book, once they turn their feeds back on they were really happy information flowed into them. Titus said it felt like spring rains and they were dancing in it.


  1. What do you think so far? Any questions?

  2. i think it is an easier read then huck fin. I like it a lot. No questions so far!

  3. I thought it was really interesting that the language Violet knew how to write is a type of programming language for computers. I think Anderson is really showing us how much of civilization in this time revolves around computers.
