Literature Circle Material
From this selection we can tell that Titus wanted to be with someone again. He felt lonely at parties even though he was surrounded by a lot of people. He said it's worse when you leave because you are reminded of everything you missed and that he wants someone to leave with so he can have company. This is the case with a lot of teenagers nowadays who go to parties but they still feel alone and like it wouldn't matter to anyone if they left the party or never showed up in the first place.
From this selection we can understand that Titus and his friends had a software called feed in their head which could be compared to a phone that teenagers are obsessed with today. The boys would use their feeds to watch football games like the boys today use their phones to watch games too. We see the relevance of feed in the book relates to our phones in our lives.
Reflection on Discussion
A trend a lot of teenagers seem to follow today that seems as ridiculous as the trend of lesions.
In a room so full of people they still use their phones because they are addicted to them just like Titus and his friends are addicted to their feeds.
Young children these days are getting addicted to their phones and other electronics these days.
-> We wouldnt want to get feed as it seems to have been addictive for them. They felt like their head was empty without it. They couldnt live a fun and happy life without it and felt bored. They wouldnt go out and explore the world. They hardly used their imagination or knowledge to solve problems. They would just look everything up on the feed. Without the feed we can go enjoy our lives out in the world without being addicted to it. Some of the positives would be quick problem solving methods during dangerous situations and extensive knowledge.
