Review: Little Brother

Little Brother
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A book intended for young adults and that becomes apparent from the writing style. It shows that the author had some good ideas, Cory wrote this before the Edward Snowden revelations and in the current climate this book becomes even more believable.

Some of the technology is a bit iffy, and this was a frothy story without the depth and substance I would have liked. I did burn through it in a short time, but although I enjoyed it I don’t feel justified in giving it four stars (it just wasn’t that good).

A good reminder to young adults everywhere why online (and offline) privacy is worth fighting for. If you have children you could do worse than encouraging them to read it too.
