Editorial Reviews

Review

''Cory Doctorow has authored the Bhagavad Gita of hacker/maker/burner/open source/git/gnu/wiki/99%/adjunctfaculty/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

''Cory Doctorow is one of our most important science fiction writers, because he's also a public intellectual in the old style: he brings the news and explains it, making clearer the confusions of our wild current moment. His fiction is always the heart of his work, and this is his best book yet, describing vividly the revolutionary beginnings of a new way of being. 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

''Revolves around sharing, fierce debate and open-sourced best practices. It is world-as-lesson-as-world. An anti-Atlas Shrugged. An origami argument that unfolds into a novel.'' --NPR

''The darker the hour, the better the moment for a rigorously-imagined utopian fiction. Walkaway is now the best contemporary example I know of, its utopia glimpsed after fascinatingly extrapolated revolutionary struggle. A wonderful novel: everything we've come to expect from Cory Doctorow and more.'' --William Gibson, New York Times bestselling author

''Is Doctorow's fictional utopia bravely idealistic or bitterly ironic? The answer is in our own hands. A dystopian future is in no way inevitable; 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, surveillance disclosure specialist


''[A] gritty yet hopeful sci-fi epic…Doctorow sticks the landing with a multigenerational saga that extends this tale of the 'first days of a better nation' to a thrilling and unexpected finale. A truly visionary techno-thriller that not only depicts how we might live tomorrow but asks why we don't already.'' --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

''Using multiple narrators is the perfect way to tell this story. Each actor employs slightly different voicings, which reveal subtle interpretations of character. The performers lend variety to the long passages of dialogue in which characters discuss their visions of the society they're building…Energetic and passionate performances.'' --AudioFile
