‘Homeland’ by Cory Doctorow

‘Manual For The Resistance’

Score: 3/5

Cory Doctorow

This follow-up to Little Brother is a bit cheesier than I remember the first book being. The cameos of people the author knows feel particularly cringey.

But apart from that, what this book seems to be is a manual, or a set of instructions. If you wanted to ‘resist’ things in your country (whatever country you’re in), here’s how you could use current tech and encryption to help. How to use Tor for un-tappable browsing and communications, that kind of thing.

But where I got into Little Brother (and got angry!), Homeland just left me feeling ‘Meh’. It wasn’t as engaging for me as the first book, and it felt a little clumsier. Ah well.
