1.0 out of 5 stars boring, 26 Dec. 2014
Really long and boring. Was waiting for some breakthrough, some really exciting ending. Nothing of that sort happened. Wasted 2 hours and 40 minutes of my life.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you’re going to read one book this year – this is the one, 25 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Little Brother (Paperback)
I never write reviews, but with this book - I just had to do it.

“Little Brother”, on the surface, seems to be an enjoyable read about of a teenager living in today’s world of ubiquitous surveillance. Marcus tries to live a normal life, with his friends, family and a girlfriend. Then comes the twist - he gets caught in the aftermath of a terror attack. The young American is not arrested - as you would expect in sunny San Francisco, California. He is detained.

That’s where the real story unfolds. From that moment on, you can’t stop reading and you can’t stop wondering. Why this fiction (about home) is so similar to reality (abroad)? Why is it so scary? Is it really that easy to change the land of freedom into a land of terror?

This is a great book. If you have never been interested in civil liberties, didn't care about Guantanamo, secret prisons or torture – this book is precisely for you. It won’t bore you. The life of a young man with impressive computer skills is entertaining enough. But really, it’s a very important warning how fragile are liberties are. In unassuming, even light style, the story unfolds to shows surprisingly accurate parallels between fiction in the book and the real events we hear about, no so far from home.

Someone said “if you’re going to read one book this year – this is the one”. I couldn't agree more.

2.0 out of 5 stars poor quality, 17 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Despite the fact that disassembling and assembling iPhone is non trivial and requires significant effort, this screen replacement funnily enough within a day or two developed a few white straight vertical lines on the left edge, which haven't disappeared so far. It looks pretty ugly and implies the quality of this screen is far from what I would expect. I'm honestly disappointed.
