Little Brother

Little BrotherLittle Brother by Cory Doctorow
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Excellent for the way it attacked the topic it aimed for--a "near-future" dystopian world that it shockingly similar to the one we live in right now. All the technology, and the explanatory techno-talk, really allows for a strong connection to be made between that world and ours. And once that connection is made, the implications are unsettling. It felt different for that reason--it was more real and close than the other more futuristic governments. It makes the reader take a hard look at where they stand on some issues-- privacy, or terrorists? is a very real one. Also evokes pride in the freedoms we have and how they should be defended. I wasn't in love with the characters, but their actions and development were intense and gripping. Some content.
