Product description

Review

"A wonderful, important book...I'd recommend "Little Brother" over pretty much any book I've read this year, and I'd want to get it into the hands of as many smart thirteen-year-olds, male and female, as I can. Because I think it'll change lives. Because some kids, maybe just a few, won't be the same after they've read it. Maybe they'll change politically, maybe technologically. Maybe it'll just be the first book they loved or that spoke to their inner geek. Maybe they'll want to argue about it and disagree with it. Maybe they'll want to open their computer and see what's in there. I don't know. It made me want to be thirteen again "right now," and reading it for the first time." --Neil Gaiman, author of "Sandman" and "American Gods" on "Little Brother"

"A rousing tale of techno-geek rebellion." --Scott Westerfeld, author of "Uglies," "Pretties," and "Specials," 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"
"A tale of struggle familiar to any teenager, about those moments when you choose what your life is going to mean." --Steven Gould, author of "Jumper," on "Little Brother"

"A believable and frightening tale of a near-future San Francisco ... Filled with sharp dialogue and detailed descriptions... within a tautly crafted fictional framework." -"Publishers Weekly" starred review on Little Brother ("Featured in "PW" Children's e-newsletter)"

"Readers will delight in the details of how Marcus attempts to stage a techno-revolution ... Buy multiple copies; thisbook will be h4wt (that's 'hot, ' for the nonhackers)." -"Booklist" starred review on Little Brother ("Selected as a "Booklist" "Review of the Day")"

"Marcus is a wonderfully developed character: hyperaware of his surroundings, trying to redress past wrongs, and rebelling against authority ... Raising pertinent questions and fostering discussion, this techno-thriller is an outstanding first purchase." -"School Library Journal "starred review on Little Brother

""Little Brother" is generally awesome in the more vernacular sense: It's pretty freaking cool ... a fluid, instantly ingratiating fiction writer ... he's also terrific at finding the human aura shimmering around technology." -"The Los Angeles Times "on Little Brother

"Scarily realistic...Action-packed with tales of courage, technology, and demonstrations of digital disobedience as the technophile's civil protest." --Andrew "bunnie" Huang, author of "Hacking the Xbox," on "Little Brother"
"The right book at the right time from the right author--and, not entirely coincidentally, Cory Doctorow's best novel yet." --John Scalzi, bestselling author of "Old Man's War," on "Little Brother"
"I was completely hooked in the first few minutes. Great work." --Mitch Kapor, inventor of Lotus 1-2-3 and co-founder of the EFF, on "Little Brother""
"
"Little Brother is a brilliant novel with a bold argument: hackers and gamers might just be our country's best hope for the future." --Jane McGonigal, designer of the alternate-reality game I Love Bees on "Little Brother"

""Little Brother" sounds an optimistic warning. It extrapolates from current events to remind us of the ever-growing threats to liberty. But it also notes thatliberty ultimately resides in our individual attitudes and actions. In our increasingly authoritarian world, I especially hope that teenagers and young adults will read it--and then persuade their peers, parents and teachers to follow suit." --Dan Gillmor, technology journalist, author of "We the Media" on "Little Brother"

"It's about growing up in the near future where things have kept going on the way they've been going, and it's about hacking as a habit of mind, but mostly it's about growing up and changing and looking at the world and asking what you can do about that. The teenage voice is pitch-perfect. I couldn't put it down, and I loved it." --Jo Walton, author of "Farthing" on "Little Brother"

"Read this book. You'll learn a great deal about computer security, surveillance and how to counter it, and the risk of trading off freedom for 'security.' And you'll have fun doing it." --Tim O'Reilly, founder and CEO of O'Reilly Media on" Little Brother"

"I know many science fiction writers engaged in the cyber-world, but Cory Doctorow is a native...We should all hope and trust that our culture has the guts and moxie to follow this guy. He's got a lot to tell us." --Bruce Sterling
"Cory Doctorow doesn't just write about the future--I think he lives there." --Kelly Link, author of "Stranger Things Happen"
"Doctorow throws off cool ideas the way champagne generates bubbles...[he] definitely has the goods." --"San Francisco"" Chronicle"
"Doctorow is one of sci-fi's most exciting young writers." --"Cargo Magazine"
