Books by Cory Doctorow
In Real Life (2014)
language
English
4.32 of 5 Votes: 9
review 1: This was cute, well written, and beautifully drawn. A refreshing POV and a good adaptation of a short story. Grounded without being depressing and fun without being unrealistic (edit: it does deal with the global race/economic issues pretty lightly but not patronizingly so, I thi...
With A Little Help (2010)
language
English
3.88 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Cory Doctorow is a one message pony. That doesn't mean I didn't like his stories. I enjoy seeing how many different ways he can tell us that we shouldn't trust authority. I read this collection of short stories via DailyLit, an email subscription service, getting a bit more than ...
For the Win (2010)
language
English
3.79 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Meh. Plausible and well-constructed... as always, Cory's grasp of the technology and the way that he accurately weaves it into the story is excellent, but there really weren't any characters I cared about, which makes it difficult to root for them to overcome their adversity. As ...
Makers (2009)
language
English
3.72 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Possibly not at all interesting to anyone who does not work directly in manufacturing, but I found this to be a very fascinating analysis of the new production paradigm available to small scale companies thanks to the convergence of technologies such as 3D printing, open source d...
The Rapture of the Nerds: A tale of the singularity, posthumanity, and awkward social situations (2012)
language
English
3.38 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I would definitely look for more books by these authors, but I wasn't overwhelmed with affection for this one. I'm fascinated by the Singularity, and I want to read more fictions about this possible future. The characters are not very appealing to me, the humour is there but not ...
Information Doesn't Want to Be Free: Laws for the Internet Age (2014)
language
English
4.05 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Not exactly what I was expecting...this really is a treatise on copyright laws and how they need to be updated for the Information Age. I had come into this book expecting more information on being an Internet entrepreneur and making a living as an independent artist with content...
Pirate Cinema (2012)
language
English
3.68 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: A great book about copyright, people's rights, and a near-future that feels like now (which is probably at least part of the description to 90% of Doctorow's writing) this one manages to have the narrative heft and character development of Little Brother while not being quite so ...
The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (2011)
language
English
3.71 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Another example of why I need to start noting why I put something on my wishlist (source of recommendation, book club, random search, etc.) By the time I get books I don't always remember the context in which I thought it would be a good read.This wasn't a bad story, but I don't...
İyi Güzel Muhteşem Yarın (2012)
language
English
3.71 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Num futuro pós-singularidade, onde as cidades desertas vão sendo destruídas por criaturas bio-engenhadas um jovem imortal geneticamente modificado assiste à destruição da cidade-museu do seu pai, cruza-se com uma sociedade onde os membros implantam antenas emocionais no cérebro, ...
Lawful Interception (2013)
language
English
3.7 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: As befits a short story, Lawful Interception has little of the grand "fight the power" feel of the novels, Little Brother and Homeland, in the Marcus Yallow series, but it retains the series wonderful sense of character, place, and purpose.The last, in this case, being how Marcus...
When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth (Overclocked #2) (2000)
language
English
3.88 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: When I was still in school, I remember Adrian telling me about a story he read where some sort of global Armageddon-level catastrophe happened, and the only survivors were the System Administrators who happened to be in their hermetically sealed, climate controlled, battery backe...
Content: Selected Essays on Technology, Creativity, Copyright, and the Future of the Future (2008)
language
English
3.88 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: Un insieme di scritti molto interessanti sulla creatività e sul diritto di autore. L'avvento delle nuove tecnologie ha portato uno sconvolgimento alle dinamiche che, da sempre, hanno governato il diritto di autore e ha messo in seria difficoltà le multinazionali che gestiscono la...
Kontekst. Eseje o wydajności, kreatywności,  rodzicielstwie i polityce w XXI w. (2014)
language
English
3.69 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Described as a political activist and Renaissance geek, Doctorow is well-wired into the high-tech pop culture, and if fact is a frequent contributor to Wired magazine.This book is Doctorow's second nonfiction book, and it again shows off his talent in satirizing and critiquing ou...
Cory Doctorow's Futuristic Tales Of The Here And Now (2008)
language
English
3.7 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: This is a mixed bag of adaptations of Cory Doctorow stories. Some work really well in the comic format (Craphound especially stands out), and some manage to lose most of their luster (When Sysadmins Ruled the World especially loses most of its meaning in the presentation here). ...
