Reviews

"His most cogent, energizing call-to-arms to date." --Booklist, starred review

"Funny, thought-provoking, and glorious." --School Library Journal (starred review)

"Fun...Pirate Cinema offers ample and appetizing food for thought." --Seattle Times

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

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

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

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

"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 on Little Brother

"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) on Little Brother

"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 on Little Brother

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