Color me deee-lighted: the notoriously hard-to-please Kirkus Reviews just published a review of Homeland, the sequel to my novel Little Brother (it'll be out next Feb, here's the tour schedule), and they loved it. After a glowing recap of the plot, they said,
Such nerd-favorite icons as 3-D printers, Wil Wheaton and /My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic/ serve as in-jokes, but the concise explanations of real-world technology and fast pace make it accessible to less technologically savvy readers.
Outstanding for its target audience, and even those outside Doctorow’s traditional reach may find themselves moved by its call to action.
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
