This review is from: Eastern Standard Tribe (Paperback)
it is almost uncanny how doctorow is able to create a fictional world which is fictional but at the same time so familiar, so only few seconds away from the present....
the cops in london, one can imagine that soon things will be so bad for the victim of crimes, not for the criminals..
the book is also about other stories, the acknowledgements at the end of the book seem to point to autobiographical elements, maybe Cory has come across the same type of situations as his character Ant.
I am trying to avoid spoilers so I am not venturing into the story at all. Suffice to say this too is a well written book, with a lot at heart: from copyrights to love and its betrayal to a slightly new type of geek, not the coding but someone who designs interfaces and ways to improve people lives by using technology.
A must read.
