A review of Walkaway

WalkawayWalkaway by Cory Doctorow

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a ponderous book. It is filled (to overflowing at times) with meaty ideas and concepts. The villains (and there are many) are one dimensional and drawn from what appears to be a deep pessimism about the world. All in all, this felt like a homework assignment to read “an important classic” that no one would otherwise read. I liked it for the ideas and for some of the characters but not for the plotting.
