Mini-review of Freedom(tm) by Daniel Suarez

Killer ninja motorcycles chop people up. Doc Manhattan’s less-blue relative appears. Good guys win. They establish humane, John Robb-style resilient communities. Bad guys get their just deserts. Huzzahs all around. Except…

…the good guys would have gotten c-r-e-a-m-e-d were it not for the all-wise program on their side and the tech that—oddly—only it knew how to build. So, for us in a non-fiction world, this is actually a pessimistic book: the author sees a bad moon rising, but we seem to be short on inhumanly brilliant game designers to prevent it.

If you liked the previous book, you’ll like this one too.
