Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 9 Up-Trent McCauley, 16, makes films. The problem is that his films are composed of bits and pieces of other copyrighted material. He's a thief of intellectual property and in this near-future Great Britain, the consequences for this sort of action are severe. He leaves home for London after his online piracy has caused his entire family to lose their vital Internet connection for a year. He soon meets Jem, who shows him the ropes of being homeless, and in no time they are sharing a posh flop with Trent's new mates. Back online, he makes films that are a smash hit on the underground scene where he rechristens himself "Cecil B. DeVil." He falls in love with beautiful and brilliant 26, who opens his eyes to the political ramifications of his filmmaking. Soon Cecil and his entire crew are in a political and artistic fight to dismantle legislation criminalizing their type of creativity, legislation written by film studios and passed by the studios' Parliament lackeys. This amazing book combines young love, terrific humor, great British slang, and crazy parties with astute commentary on intellectual property and emerging modes of creativity. Doctorow's characters are well-defined individuals, all with some facet, quirk, or activity to give them color. Language-arts and civics teachers could co-teach the heck out of this novel, and debaters will find a goldmine of monologues. It's funny, thought-provoking, and glorious.-Eric Norton, McMillan Memorial Library, Wisconsin Rapids, WIα(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.

Review

“His most cogent, energizing call-to-arms to date.” ―Booklist, starred review

“Funny, thought-provoking, and glorious.” ―School Library Journal (starred review)

“Fun...Pirate Cinema offers ample and appetizing food for thought.” ―Seattle Times

“A wonderful, important book...I'd recommend Little Brother over pretty much any book I've read this year.” ―Neil Gaiman on Little Brother

“A rousing tale of techno-geek rebellion.” ―Scott Westerfeld on Little Brother

“A terrific read ... A neat story and a cogently written, passionately felt argument. It's a stirring call to arms.” ―The New York Times on Little Brother

“One of the year's most important books.” ―Chicago Tribune 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

“Believable and frightening...Filled with sharp dialogue and detailed descriptions of how to counteract gait-recognition cameras, arphids (radio frequency ID tags), wireless Internet tracers and other surveillance devices, this work makes its admittedly didactic point within a tautly crafted fictional framework.” ―Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Little Brother

“I'm a huge fan of Little Brother. Reading about m1k3y, Ange, and their friends helped me visualize the escalating intrusions on our freedom and privacy wrought by advances in technology. The book describes a dystopia that seems chillingly plausible-and near.” ―Alex Kozinski, Chief Justice of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on Little Brother

“Freaking cool...Doctorow is terrific at finding the human aura shimmering around technology.” ―Los Angeles Times on Little Brother
