Reviews

Praise for the "New York Times "bestselling "Little Brother:

""A wonderful, important book . . . I'd recommend "Little Brother" over pretty much any book I've read this year."
--Neil Gaiman

"A rousing tale of techno-geek rebellion."
--Scott Westerfeld

"A terrific read . . . A neat story and a cogently written, passionately felt argument. It's a stirring call to arms."
--"The New York Times

""One of the year's most important books."
--"Chicago Tribune

""A worthy younger sibling to Orwell's "Nineteen Eighty-Four, " Cory Doctorow's "Little Brother" is lively, precocious, and most importantly, a little scary."
--Brian K. Vaughan, author of the graphic novel "Y: The Last Man

""Believable and frightening . . . Filled with sharp dialogue and detailed descriptions of how to counteract gait-recognition cameras, arphids (radio frequency ID tags), wireless Internet tracers and other surveillance devices, this work makes its admittedly didactic point within a tautly crafted fictional framework."
--"Publishers Weekly "(starred review)

"I'm a huge fan of "Little Brother." Reading about m1k3y, Ange, and their friends helped me visualize the escalating intrusions on our freedom and privacy wrought by advances in technology. The book describes a dystopia that seems chillingly plausible--and near."
--Alex Kozinski, Chief Justice of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

"Freaking cool . . . Doctorow is terrific at finding the human aura shimmering around technology."
--"Los Angeles Times"
