  1. Ah, I remember Leo Laporte recording his story a while ago on the live video stream.  He kept redoing parts to get it perfect.

     

  2. Curious if others recommend this.  Haven’t read any Doctorow yet.  Would this be a good place to start?

  3. I don’t know if I’d use Little Brother as an intro to Doctorow. His look at the potential for government infringement on individual rights is certainly important subject matter, but I don’t think it’s his best written work. I thought his long-winded technical asides for things like encryption repeatedly brought the narrative to a screeching halt.

    My suggestion to get into Doctorow would be his short story collection A Place so Foreign and 8 More. You’ll find out pretty quickly with a short story whether you like his writing style and ideas. If you want to start with a novel, I’d suggest Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom.

     

  4. The only thing I really liked was the comic book adaption of Anda’s Game.  I think there’s a free download.
