5.0 out of 5 stars Cory's best work yet, 31 Dec 2008
This review is from: Little Brother (Paperback)
I finished reading the new book Little Brother by Cory Doctorow tonight. It's a really exciting book, one that leaves you wanted to read just a few more chapters before you fall a sleep. The book is about a not-so-distant future in which San Francisco is attacked by terrorists. And how the whole system is turned upside down because of the event. Besides the main story which is really good, the book is sprinkled with reference to geeky stuff like Tor, Electronic Frontier Foundation and crypto. The book is also stuck full of good humor, like the following quote:

the only person who'd spoken to me was a Jehovah's Witness and a Scientologist, both trying to convert me. It felt gross, like being hit on by a pervert.

I was a little skeptical about the book at first, since I've read some his earlier works and I wasn't that big of a fan of Down and Out in a Magic Kingdom. So I downloaded the book for free (CC-licensed) and started reading it on my laptop. After the first chapters the book really caught me, and I ordered the book on amazon, thinking I would read the rest of it when it got here in physical form. Of course I couldn't let go of the book and finished it of before the amazon order has arrived. That doesn't mean I'll cancel my order, the book is really good and Cory deserves the praises he has been getting for this book.
