    Disappointing - contrived

    I rarely fail to finish a book, but put this down after reading only a third. For me, Cory just did not build a base from the present to his new reality that I found believable. How events were initiated and unfolded and how they led to the next event seamed random.

    Beautifully written, philosophically dense

    A not-so-distant future take on how emerging social and technological trends will continue, many to their weird conclusion. It is a 3D printed world that takes a hard look at wealth distribution from a distinctly game theory position. Be ready to absorb some philosophy; this isn't one to feast on, but one to nibble at. Take your time, digest it and think. I am remarkably glad that Mr. Doctorow has turned his talents to an adult book, and hope this is a trend that continues.

    Great story, showing a possible near future

    Outstanding, in every way. Great character development. This is a near-future world in which young adults and many others find no place for themselves in the world of disposable employees, vast debt (including for higher education), and the gig economy. Doctorow has extrapolated from the "maker" movement and crowd-sourced intelligence, and has envisaged a world where many people simply walk away from the dominant society, and make their own society, largely on the outskirts, and with few external dependencies. Of course, the dominant society dismisses, and then actively opposes, the movement. This work is important, not just entertaining. It addresses people of today, who are not able to thrive in the mainstream world of the 21st century, and considers what the future could bring. It is in some ways a descendant of Kerouac's "On the Road" or the Merry Pranksters' journey as described in "The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Trip." At the same time, Doctorow is not just telling a story, but also providing a blueprint of the possible future he presents. BF Skinner's "Walden Two" made a similar attempt, and this type of future blueprinting success is not measured only by the actuality of the future emerging, but by simply shifting the cultural dialog of the time. Or, you can forget about all of that and enjoy the story. It's got artificial intelligence, features fast-paced chase scenes and hairsbreadth escapes, believable characters, and shadowy villains.

    Great book-interesting social commentary-fun ride

    I really enjoyed the world that this book takes place in. Provides an interesting possible near-ish future with excellent commentary on today's class conflict and economic disparity. I definitely grew attached to the characters in this book.
