Review: Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

Haiku Review!

One day normal, next
CHAOS. Marcus knows the truth.
Will people listen?

Sometime in the near future, 17-year-old Marcus skips school one day to get a head start on a role playing game.  While out and about in San Francisco, the unthinkable happens- there's a terrorist attack.  Marcus is caught by the government, who think he and his friends were somehow involved.  Homeland Security doesn't seem to believe that the kids were just at the wrong place at the wrong time.  Marcus needs to come up with a way to prove his innocence, but to also show the darker side of the government.

This book is a whirlwind of Marcus and his friends just trying to show the world how they were wronged.  There's gadgets, technology, espionage, action and even a little side of romance. What I personally liked about it is that it really showed the after effects of the terrorists.  The San Francisco after the attacks is a much darker one, with a lot less privacy for it's citizens, than the one before the attacks.  Little Brother by Cory Doctorow is a seriously intense book.
