better than the first one! ( )

So first, my disappointments: Suarez is much better at writing straight-up techno-thrillers than he is alternative societies and political conundrums. Freedom (tm) begins where Daemon left off, and as a result falls into the societies that build up in a post-Daemon world. Suarez largely falls on the side of 'tell, don't show' with regard to these societies, and the story suffers for it - characters engage in dialogue that feels rather unsatisfying. They get lost in narrating their own exposition and lose their own voices, all using the same vocabulary instead of explaining concepts in what would be a more natural way for themselves.

There's still plenty of techno-gadgets, and there's still plenty of action - although I found it to be jarring and gratuitous. (Here's these new pockets of society. Back to the motorbikes with lasers and swords! Slice slice slice!) If you're not familiar with general concepts in online communities (voting patterns, reputation scores, and the like), you may not have as much appreciation for the details in the post-Daemon world.

Still, it's a logical and thought provoking continuation of where Daemon left off. The story is advanced by Freedom (tm), and it's overall a satisfying read. ( )

The continuation of the story started in "Daemon," I didn't find this one to be quite as exciting. Maybe I was spoiled by the first book and had unfair expectations going into the sequel. However, "Freedom" was still a good book in its own way. The after effects of the massive cyber attack were quite believable. I certainly hope we never find out how accurate Mr. Suarez was in his futuristic vision.

Freedom™ is the second book in the Daemon book series following Daemon.

Like Daemon, Freedom™ is a lengthy fiction story with over 400 pages. According to a TechCrunch interview with the author, Daniel Suarez, there may be a third part on the horizon at some point in the future.

As in Daemon, a dead guy (Matthew Sobol) rules the world via the computer program known as Daemon. ... Book Review: Freedom (Daemon Sequel) By Daniel Suarez | Katarina Nolte

Epigraph
Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.
