Last night I decided to take some time and start reading Little Brother by Cory Doctorow. I wanted to start on it and maybe go to bed a little on the early side for a change. Well, I didn't go to bed until 1:30 a.m. because I didn't want to put it down.

The book touches on a lot of important things, and I wish that I knew a teenager that I could give this book to when I'm done with it. I'm 24 and still prone to fits of rebellion. This book moves me. I guess because I remember being 17 on a certain September day and wondering why the world had gone so crazy. I still wonder at it sometimes, and I feel terrible for someone who only knows the world as this crazy, paranoid mess. Or have I only been naive, and the world's always been this way and I was oblivious to it before? Either way, I'd like to pass this book on to a young person, because I feel it teaches an important lesson about civics and why liberty is something worth holding on to even in the face of danger. I think that's where this book can do the most good.
