“Doctorow is indispensible. It's hard to imagine any other author taking on youth and technology with such passion, intelligence, and understanding.”—Booklist, starred review on For The Win
Praise for Little Brother:
“Generally awesome in the more vernacular sense: It's pretty freaking cool... He's also terrific at finding the human aura shimmering around technology." —The Los Angeles Times
“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)
“Doctorow pays homage to  with an impassioned, polemical consideration of the War on Terror that dovetails with themes of teenage angst, rebellion, and paranoia ... Little Brother should easily find favor with fans of M. T. Anderson's Feed, Janet Tashjian's The Gospel According to Larry, and Scott Westerfeld's So Yesterday.” —Horn Book(starred review)
“Readers will delight in the details of how Marcus attempts to stage a techno-revolution… Buy multiple copies; this book will be h4wt (that’s ‘hot,’ for the nonhackers).” —Booklist (starred review)
The characters are believable and entertaining, the story is grand, and the message is important and chilling.
While not Doctorow's most powerful prose, Pirate Cinema is a great exploration of a topic that has tremendous implications for the near future we will all live in.
The ideas discussed in the book were noble and timely, given the SOPA and PIPA stuff, but I felt like I was being lectured to throughout the whole book!

Despite of developing in England, this remarcable novel is set over the scheme of Little Brother. I could pair characters down to some secondary ones between the two of them. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Monica Beltrami-Carter

If Pirate Cinema were half as long it would be fantastic book. As others have said, big parts of the book are very preachy about digital rights management. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Mark Polino
I enjoyed PC a lot, primarily for its unadulterated celebration of the art of editing video clips to tell a new story. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Dave Versace
Doctorow's snappy, amiable novel shines brightly as a piece of activist fiction, focusing its sights tightly on a reality controlled by copyright law and the entertainment... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Amazon Customer
