In Part 3 ; Utopia of the Book Feed by: M.T Anderson, Titus is explaining in first person that things are back to normal, like nothing ever happened. He explains how he’s resting and his parents are with him, it seems like a pretty chilled vibe since he says he was on chat and sharing music. Later on, Him and Violet are talking about Quendy’s party as he picked her up in his parents up car. Violet says she hasn’t really been to a lot of parties because she was home schooled. “My Friends and i were all home-schooled, so we’re a mixed bag. Bettina’s Mother has us come over and weave ponchos.” -Violet (pg.78). Titus then explains to her more about what to expect in parties.
At Quendy’s Party, Titus says its pretty good but then he sees Link and Marty playing some game called The Cranky Tumble of Dark house. It was about zombies and mutants. Link and Marty were jumping and cursing. as the party goes on Violet decides to go over to Calista and say hi while Titus went to talk to Quendy. Quendy starts asking Titus all these questions about how if him and violet date. As she’s talking he turns around and looks at Violet and Calista, Calista seems to be mad but Titus and Violet chat in with each other. as the party goes on people are using the feed to share and listen to music and just play games and have fun.
As the book goes on Violet and Titus then go to the mall. Violet tries to tell Titus what actually is going on like how the feed might be watching them and everything they do, how it shows you only the things that are compatible with your personality and interests. She decides to prove it by going with Titus to different random stores and asking for the most random things. They leave each store without buying anything. on their way home Violet says that she got new things on her feed about the things she asked for at the random stores. Titus felt like this made her smarter than him and he felt a certain way. later on in the book he realizes she really isn’t, because she was always at home and she never really had the things she wanted that showed on the feed due to money or because her parents said no. In the book it says Violet would want a gun and since her father was against guns she would use things she found that had the shape of a gun. (pg.107)
Titus then starts to talk about the differences in schools and how Public school like back in the day his grandparents didn’t really learn anything about school. just how to do pointless rings but never to handle or do with life itself. Titus says the schools have gotten much better due to the fact that they are ruined by cooperations, human beings, not people who do it to take money away. Violet explains that her parents didn’t really have money to have a feed and her parents didn’t want her to have one so she got it when she was 7. she says that she feels like the feed makes you different and it doesn’t really make you who you are. it makes you ignorant, so Titus takes it the other way, he thinks that she meant everyone including him. Titus then talks to his mother about it and explains how he feels about himself. His parents decide to get him his own up car and they then make him feel better.
Titus meets violets parents but after that Violet starts feeling weird. Titus then remembers that she told him that she’s been feeling weird ever since the hack. Titus feels like he has to take her to the hospital so she can get her feed fixed. i think Violet is that girl that sees the world in a different way and she’s more open minded so i feel like the hack hurt her more.
Violet in my opinion is someone who is trying to make everyone open their eyes and realize that we don’t need the feed and trying to prove that its all about buying things and technology. As she tried to prove to Titus about it by going to the mall. i think she’s trying to make a good point on this.
