Review: Little Brother
Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Overall, I liked the story. There is a scary sense of realism when it comes to technology and how people can be tracked using the GPS function in their cell phones. And how Google uses your current location and an aggragate that includes your previous searches and what you clicked on to determine what results are best suited to show up in whatever search you're conducting at the moment. I thought, like one of my friends, that the explanations of all of the technology slowed the story down a bit. I could see how it was necessary in terms of not wanting to alienate audience, though.
