Molto bello ed attuale. Anzi, attualissimo specie dopo Snowden. Un attacco terroristico a San Francisco fa si che il Dipartimento della Sicurezza Interna degli USA si metta a spiare tutti e tutto. Sono tutti rassegnati tranne un ragazzino 17enne. Se mai vi siete interessati di Privacy, di come questa viene violata, come siete spiati in rete .. leggete questo libro.
X sta sia per X-net (una sotto rete del web) che X-box, lo strumento usato per navigare sulla X-net
This book was more like a 3.5 stars for me. I liked it but not as much as I thought I would from all the hype around it. I felt a lot of it was an unbelievable progression of how things might go. What do I know though. I'm over 25, ha :)
La mia recensione:
If there's a book worth reading and giving out as a present in this particular historical period, that is "Little Brother". What is our world really like?
A hackers novel on a 17 years old techie who does not accept technological control and after being accidentally arrested as an aftermath of a terrorist attack declares technological war to Homeland Security.
Structured as a David and Goliath novel in a teenage computer freaks world and spoken in a teenage language, it forms a politically engaged plot on what we consider the values of freedom, on the role of technology, on the relation between old and new generations, on US cyber subcultures and on hacking.
I guess it's worth reading although I didn't like the literary extreme colloquial style.
