Walkaway by Cory Doctorow

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Sometimes I feel like Cory Doctorow is too clever for his own good. Some of the references in here were a bit too much, particularly when he made the reference a couple times and THEN felt the need to explain it, though his target audience probably knows exactly what he’s talking about.

There are some concepts in here that appear in his other works, like deadheading, singularities, and of course, anarcho-communist ideas, but overall, there was just WAY TOO MUCH world building in here for me. I wanted the story, and Gretyl and Iceweasel’s story was far more entertaining than all the lead up about the walkaways. The last 2 sections of the book were the best for me personally.
