Doctorow manages to bring realism to a disturbing near-future tale of government surveillance and control run amok. The protagonist is a compelling young man who uses tech skills to defy impending fascism. Though this is a YA novel, it works well for older readers too.

An outrageous book, given that Cory Doctorow, the author, heavily censors his site, boingboing.net! I find it difficult to stomach any type of fiction in this genre from someone like Doctorow, who practises extreme censorship at the web site he founded (and he is specifically the one responsible for doing so) as he strives to only allow the most vanilla of comments on his site!

Thoroughly readable... can't quite give it the five stars I gave to Little Brother because it begins with a long, long paean to Burning Man, and because it's not stand-alone enough (anybody who hadn't read the first book, and recently, would be irretrievably lost before long). But it's got engaging characters, and a rollicking storyline, and wonderful cameos. Doctorow has a tremendous talent for making me *worry* about his characters and what's going to happen to them (and my favorite city) next!


Just finished reading it and... well, this book deserved an ending with some complexity and nuance. It felt a bit contrived. Not bad... but not as good as the rest of the book led me to expect and hope for.

A worthy (but not quite so engaging) followup to Little Brother.
