    There is a reason why totalitarian governments ban books The reason is that books can change the world Uncle Tom s Cabin and Frederick Douglass autobiography opened people s eyes to the evils of slavery Anne Frank s Diary taught us that genocide kills innocent young girls To Kill a Mockingbird showed us that justice isn t always just and that people should be judged by their character rather than the color of their skin The Grapes of Wrath opened our eyes to the plight of migrant far There is a reason why totalitarian governments ban books The reason is that books can change the world Uncle Tom s Cabin and Frederick Douglass autobiography opened people s eyes to the evils of slavery Anne Frank s Diary taught us that genocide kills innocent young girls To Kill a Mockingbird showed us that justice isn t always just and that people should be judged by their character rather than the color of their skin The Grapes of Wrath opened our eyes to the plight of migrant farm workers 1984 warned us about the perils of a nanny state Now, in 2008, a new book of power has emerged Little Brother is 1984 for the 21st century, but withimpact.I don t recall that the book ever states what the year is It really doesn t matter It takes place post 9 11 Terrorists blow up San Francisco s Bay Bridge and everyone s constitutional rights get trampled in the aftermath This book is aimed at teens, but every American adult should read it too Parents should read it with their teens and discuss it with them There are a few scenes of teenage drinking and sex, but the overwhelming message of this book is so strong that even this conservative mother is willing to overlook it My daughter was 18 on 9 11 My son is only 4 years away from being the same age as the protagonist I remember how idealistic I was a teen I read this book with all that in my experience I read it as a mother I read it as an idealistic teen and I read it as a true believer in our rights as American citizens I read thI didn t is book with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat At 47, I thought I was past the age when a book would have the power to move me and change me as profoundly as Little Brother I ve read thousands of books in my lifetime I have very fond memories of so many of them But, when it comes to real power, Little Brother is right up there next to To Kill a Mockingbird I d give it 6 stars if I could It is that good.____________________________________________I do have to add that I gave this to my son to read before I read it He is almost 13 He loved this book He wants to readbooks like it I m going to have to tell him that it s just a unique book And, he did ask me why I didn t tell him it had adult situations I had to tell him that I didn t know I really recommend that you let your teens read it before you do They ll be less embarrassed that way You can use the adult situations as a tool to talk about those touchy subjects of sex, drugs and alcohol

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Just finished reading the free.pdf version of Cory Doctorow s Little Brother.The writing is not the tightest I have ever read, nor does it even begin to exude elegance, but it does a decent job of keeping you reading.I was incredibly put off by the chapter start bookstore dedications It felt like a weird meta sort of pandering This is what you do when you are relentlessly self promotional You tell people you like them, and tell everyone in the world their name and where they live The obli Just finished reading the free.pdf version of Cory Doctorow s Little Brother.The writing is not the tightest I have ever read, nor does it even begin to exude elegance, but it does a decent job of keeping you reading.I was incredibly put off by the chapter start bookstore dedications It felt like a weird meta sort of pandering This is what you do when you are relentlessly self promotional You tell people you like them, and tell everyone in the world their name and where they live The obligation to the return the favor feels like less of an obligation, so now Doctorow s cultivated a network of bookshops who are probably going to beamenable to keeping his stuff in stock, perhaps waiting for the day he strolls in to the brick and mortar businesses, anyway to sign whatever they ve got of his on hand I was never allowed to read the book purely for the first several chapters, as I was worried that I might be missing some plot related element if I skipped the bookstore plugs After a few chapters, it became obvious that I did not need to read them at all, and became pretty adept at skipping the italicized bits before reading on The narrative also started to becomerelaxed, so it felt easier to read once the main pin of the plot started to act as its hinge.This novel is pretty heavy handed I was cool with the concepts of security theatre and freedoms being slowly, subtly, and needlessly stripped from citizens volunteering them up in the name of Freedom, but I was absolutely NOT down with the 2 dimensional and laughable caricatures painting Rooney and Perfect Haircut and Charles I don t actually care how real those depictions might actually be, weirdly enough It was a cheap narrative element, and drew me out of the story so much that I actually began to resent the narrator and the hubris layered over him by the author like thick, crusty calcium deposits The martyrdom of Marcus is all well and good as a plot device, but other than the concert event and the flash mob, there was never any real sense of the scope of what was happening in the world of the book It isn t until much later that you actually get some mortality numbers from the book s pivotal event, and honestly, that would ve been good to know much, much earlier It s as if none of this actually occurred to Marcus until he was forced to look at it He was clueless about the DHS people he encountered, and it only took a few minutes of television watching to clue him in It was also frustrating to have him be so careful about getting off the grid when the vans came by, and to make such a huge point of it, but then, when it mattered the most after he escaped from Masha in the moving truck , when he was keeping the evidence he most needed alive and accessible Masha s phone , he didn t seem to care much at all about being detected.I dunno It s a decent read, but it felt sort of hacked together,than a little holier than thou Appropriating the Don t trust anyone over 30 slogan and re tooling it to 25 thoroughly pissed me off, for obvious reasons I am not the enemy, and I do not come from a generation that defines the habit of voluntarily giving up one s freedoms I became a teenager during the Cold War, and I remember what it was like to constantly fear nuclear fallout from an attack, of Ronnie accidentally pushing the wrong button Maybe that s something Doctorow felt necessary to put into a Young Adult book, but as a teenager, I would ve found that a little insulting, especially since Marcus shows plenty of trust in his History teacher and later on, the journalist It s ridiculous that they are painted as the exception to the rule What a grim message to send to teenagers, who already might feel disenfranchised by simply being teenagers.Anyway, I read it It was intriguing initially because the kids were playing a game they called an ARG I would have liked to have heard evenabout it, but whatever , but the rest of it was, strangely enough, a lot of fear mongering, grandstanding, and a coupla sex scenes Oh, and I was pretty irritated that Darryl became a footnote, collateral damage, unexplored What happened to him was pretty interesting, and would have given muchgravitas to the themes of the book, but it wasimportant to have Marcus and Ange close out the book by sweatily groping each other in a little tiny office with their shiny new hip revolution Sigh

    In an attempt to win over a new generation of sci fi readers, Cory Doctorow s Little Brother is marketed as a young adult book However, adult readers shouldn t worry that Doctorow s book will leave them behind or have them feeling juvenile for reading it Little Brother is a mature, contemporary novel that looks at the issue of security in a near future that doesn t seem too far from today When San Francisco is attacked by terrorists, seventeen year old hacker Marcus and his friends are out In an attempt to win over a new generation of sci fi readers, Cory Doctorow s Little Brother is marketed as a young adult book However, adult readers shouldn t worry that Doctorow s book will leave them behind or have them feeling juvenile for reading it Little Brother is a mature, contemporary novel that looks at the issue of security in a near future that doesn t seem too far from today When San Francisco is attacked by terrorists, seventeen year old hacker Marcus and his friends are out playing the latest mission of the most popular game of the day Because of their proximity to the attack and their background as hackers, Marcus and his friends are detained and questioned by the Department of Homeland Security Stripped of his rights, Marcus is eventually set free, but finds that new restrictions placed on the Internet and the world under the banner of making his countrysafe are having the opposite effect Marcus sets out to restore his true freedom and take out the oppressive regime of the Homeland Security Officers Little Brother doesn t shy away from the big questions While this novel is set in a non defined near future, Doctorow is clearly commenting on the ways and means used today to keep our country and world safe from the next attack At one point does it go from keeping us safe to denying us our freedoms and is that tradeoff worth it in the long run Doctorow s story of Marcus and his fight against the larger Big Brother is fascinating and terrifying all at the same time As you read the story, you may realize just how much of our basic, assumed freedoms have been abridged all in the name of security and safety Doctorow also takes this opportunity to provide readers an education of security systems and computer programming In what easily could have been some of the driest portions of the novel, Doctorow is able to give the reader some insight and knowledge, which may leave you curious to pursueinformation on the inventors and security methods Doctorow is something of an Internet celebrity, having revolutionized the marketing of his novels through taking advantage of on line distribution He s grown as a writer since his debut in Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom and with Little Brother, while he s writing for a young adult audience, he s found a new level of mature and assured writing that makes Little Brother one of theremarkable and haunting books I ve read this year

    Seventeen year old Marcus studies at a normal school in San Francisco set in the very near future In this case normal school means total surveillance over the students, complete control over their movement and what they read Marcus is knowledgeable and rebellious enough to fool the system into giving himself some freedom and privacy One normal day at school follows another until Marcus and his friends escape it during a break and almost perished in a terrorist attack The survivors are rounde Seventeen year old Marcus studies at a normal school in San Francisco set in the very near future In this case normal school means total surveillance over the students, complete control over their movement and what they read Marcus is knowledgeable and rebellious enough to fool the system into giving himself some freedom and privacy One normal day at school follows another until Marcus and his friends escape it during a break and almost perished in a terrorist attack The survivors are rounded up by the Department of Homeland Security and sent to an old prison to sort them out Marcus refused to cooperate initially still thinking the standard justice procedures are applied to terrorist suspects and as a result earned himself a status of one I do not need to say about the state of surveillance after a terrorist attack hint it increased to the level of that of Big Brother , but Marcus does not like it and thinks he can fool the system by his usual methods and discredit it Can he really I am sorry, but this review would be muchpolitical than my usual ones It is impossible for it not to be For starters let us just say that the terrorists won If you think I exaggerate, just try crossing US Canada border to see that I talk about, and these are two friendly neighboring nations which are very close to each other I would be the first one to admit that Cory Doctorow preaches in this book He preaches a lot However his preaching is related to very important subjects that fall under the radar for a lot of people internet privacy, cryptography, snooping, false positives paradox, and other related things He does provide a crash course for all of these from technical point of view and while he tries to keep thing simple the amount of information can still be overwhelming at times It is still a good idea to read it to get the most general idea on the topic, at the very least I cannot stress the importance of the lessons in the book enough In my opinion this book should be a must read for anybody with an IQ higher than that of an average potato Do not expect an easy read and it does get depressing the way the classic 1984 gets depressing this novel has some similarities with the latter, except that it hits way too close to home quite often too often to qualify for a comfort reading The plot combined with the importance of discussed subjects yields 4.5 stars rounded down
