Product description

Review

'An exciting, thought-provoking read that any Cory Doctorow fan is sure to enjoy. This one certainly did!' Shoreline of Infinity. '[It is] fascinating for what Doctorow has taken from our world and run into the not-so-distant future with ... He is also very good at characterisation' Concatenation. 'Doctorow mixes his expert knowledge of issues involving abusive threats to new technologies and online civil liberties with a writing style that attracts readers across generations and genres. What results is a page-turner that explores a revolutionary response to the bourgeois elite' Cascadia Magazine. 'Doctorow is an assured writer and can write to convince ... Definitely a novel to set the brain cells buzzing' Nudge Book. 'This is the best Cory Doctorow ever ... Walkaway is a sprawling, ominous and important work of a kind one rarely sees' Locus Online. 'I came to care about its characters. Doctorow somehow managed to make me feel their fear, hope, and love' Quill and Quire. '[Doctorow's] fullest, most important book so far, and a lot of fun even to disagree with' Toronto Star. 'At times, Doctorow's worldview and the day-after-tomorrow world he's created in Walkaway seems a bit rosy, too trusting of human nature and digital innovation. But he's no more a wide-eyed hippie than an Ayn Rand-inspired libertarian, and his view of humanity is complex' LA Times. 'Cory Doctorow is one of the most exciting writers of Science Fiction currently working' The Bookbag. 'Mr Doctorow's philosophy is passionately argued ... and the thinking is lively' Wall Street Journal. 'A bravura piece of storytelling, and marks a powerful shift in awareness and understanding, not just for the characters but undoubtedly for the readers themselves' National Post. 'Takes the idea of personalities as computer programs to its logical consequence, and envisages multiple copies of the same program - the same person - running simultaneously on different networks. This is the closest anyone will ever get to the fantasy of cloning identical human beings' Guardian. 'A beautifully done utopia, just far enough off normal to be science fiction, and just near enough to the near-plausible, on both the utopian and dystopian elements, to be eerie as almost programmatic ... a sheer delight' Yochai Benchler. 'Walkaway reminds us that the world we choose to build is the one we'll inhabit. Technology empowers both the powerful and the powerless, and if we want a world with more liberty and less control, we're going to have to fight for it' Edward Snowden. 'Doctorow is one of our most important science fiction writers ... In a world full of easy dystopias, he writes the hard utopia, and what do you know, his utopia is both more thought-provoking and more fun' Kim Stanley Robinson. 'A hard-edged, intelligent look at our immediate future and the high and low points of human nature, incisive, compelling and plausible' Adrian Tchaikovsky. 'The darker the hour, the better the moment for a rigorously imagined utopian fiction. Walkaway is now the best contemporary example I know of. A wonderful novel' William Gibson. 'Doctorow has authored the Bhagavad Gita of hacker/maker/burner/open source/git/gnu/wiki/99%/adjunct faculty/Anonymous/shareware/thingiverse/cypherpunk/ LGTBQIA*/squatter/upcycling culture and zipped it down into a pretty damned tight techno-thriller with a lot of sex in it' Neal Stephenson. 'Proper science fiction. A warning of our times. An investigation of what it means to be a human today and where the future might take us' Nudge. 'The tech may be more advanced, but the politics feel familiar ... The overwhelming message of Walkaway is hope [and] right now, that could not feel more timely' SciFiNow.
