Marty Hench returns in a prequel (you don't need to read Red Team Blues to enjoy this book, but I think you should because I enjoyed it) about some of his earlier exploits as a forensic accountant. This book starts "small" by tackling MLMs and then moves on to the myriad problems of the American prison system.

This is one of those books that I really loved, and feel like I can't write about intelligently. So I'll just say, Doctorow gets very real with his criticisms on how our prisons are run and how the people within them are abused. I feel like he covers a lot for a novella, without it feeling too info-dumpy.

If you said the ending was idealist, I wouldn't argue, though it definitely wasn't a happy ending wrapped up in a neat little bow. I'll definitely be reading whatever Marty Hench book he writes next, and of course, remain a fan of Doctorow's work overall.

In an age where the modder culture reigns supreme in a post scarcity world, its possible for people to walkaway from the "Default" world and live outside of the corporate/commercial driven life the world has become. The Default world doesn't like that and pushes back. This is another story (Rapture of the Nerds was another one), where Docotorow explores the "singularity", is it possible and what happens when you do, when you can completely walk away, and upload your conscience to the cloud. And a very interesting take here, once you're in the cloud, what's to prevent you from being copied so there are now multiples of you in the cloud. An interesting story. If you're into his stuff, it's probably a good one to pick up.
That's why you never hear politicians talking about "citizens", it's all "taxpayers", as though the salient fact of your relationship to the state is how much you pay. Like the state was a business and citizenship was a loyalty program that rewarded you for your custom with roads and health care.

Quotes:
Anything invented before you were eighteen was there all along. Anything invented before you're thirty is exciting and will change the world forever. Anything invented after that is an abomination and should be banned.

The internal politics of the Redwater family are always and only about one thing. "Money". "Power. Money's just keeping score"

The network interprets censorship as damage and routes around it

Cory Doctrow, is above all things, a journalist and activist. Sadly, the passion for this subject is the book's biggest failings -- we sacrifice character and plot a bit for huge dumps of information that slow and clog. Having met the man, spoken with him -- I hear Marcus speak with his voice and that's the major failing of the book. I hear Cory in every page. His journalistic background injures him here, because the author is supposed to vanish into the page, to not be a character themselves.

I'm going to forgive that, though. I'm going to forgive that Marcus doesn't sound quite like any teenager I know or knew, I'm going to ignore that sometimes we got bogged down in technical details or historical details instead of moving plot or developing character a little further, because this is the book that every post-9/11 kid should be reading. This is the book that reminds of what we were before, what we are now, and what tools both we and the enemy have to sway us in the direction of both freedom and tyranny.

I'm going to buy a copy for my niece and nephew. (I might even give him my signed, paper copy!) I want them to know how important this is. How important Marcus's fight is, because it's the fight they're inheriting from adults that failed to protect their liberties. I want them to remember they're young, but they're capable of creating great change. I want them to be able to hope again. I want them to get mad at the idea of Marcus being shipped off shore to Syria or wherever else torture is being outsourced. I want them to feel the same passionate rage I did when Severe Haircut Woman escapes real punishment. I want them to be able to draw parallels between real world events and the fiction used to teach them about it.

I want them to think, and for all the flaws this book has -- this will make them think. So I highly recommend it for anyone with young relatives, anyone who wants to remember just how much power a single citizen can have, and just how bad it got and how could it could be again.

So: Little Brother, 4 out of 5 - a must read not for it's skill or artistry, but because it's a damned important book for our times.
