Pressestimmen

Praise for Cory Doctorow

"I know many science fiction writers engaged in the cyber-world, but Cory Doctorow is a native...We should all hope and trust that our culture has the guts and moxie to follow this guy. He's got a lot to tell us."
--Bruce Sterling

"Cory Doctorow is just far enough ahead of the game to give you the authentic chill of the future...Funny as hell and sharp as steel."
--Warren Ellis, author of Transmetropolitan, on Eastern Standard Tribe

"Utterly contemporary and deeply peculiar-a hard combination to beat (or, these days, to find)."
--William Gibson, author of Neuromancer, on Eastern Standard Tribe

"Doctorow throws off cool ideas the way champagne generates bubbles...[he] definitely has the goods to be a major player in postcyberpunk science fiction. His ideas are fresh and his attitude highly engaging."
--San Francisco Chronicle on Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom

"Artful and confident...Like William Gibson and Bruce Sterling, Doctorow has discovered that the present world is science fiction, if you look at it from the right angle."
--Vancouver Sun on Eastern Standard Tribe

"Doctorow peppers his novel with technology so palpable you want to order it up on the web. You'll probably get the chance. But technology is not the point here. What is unexpected, shocking even, is how smart Doctorow is when it comes to the human heart, and how well he's able to articulate it....He seems smart because he makes the reader feel smart. When Doctorow talks, when Art argues, we just get it. There's nothing between the language and the meaning. The prose is funny, simple and straightforward. This is a no-BS book."
--NPR on Eastern Standard Tribe

5.0 von 5 Sternen Just you wait... Read along 5. Februar 2015
Von Lars - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It starts out real good, a man is renovating his new home and the author is adding a boatload of details on how it is done. That's in itself is joyful as I am a sucker for renovation. Then he states something that you probably just think is a funny expression of his.
A chapter later he says the same thing and adds another very curious observation. I just read along a bit nonplussed. Then another and I was totally hooked and.. Spooked in a fascinating way. It's all fabulous reading from that point.
This was my first book by the author, I had read a novella before so I liked the way with words he had.
After this... What a story, and what a strange man he must be. :-)
4.0 von 5 Sternen Fantastic story, very well written 21. September 2010
Von GDMF - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Parts of this book are so well written that I had to force myself to put the book down and do something else.
The story moves around and each segment sucks you in further.
My only mild criticism is that the symbolism around one the characters and her relationships is so obvious I was literally embarassed at times while reading the book.
The book iteslf is a great size to hold and read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful, if meandering, fantasy 3. Januar 2007
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Other than "fantasy" or "horror" it would be tough to classify this book. Sometimes I feel like the character development is straying wildly into social issues that Doctorow pretty much has to pound on every time he sits down at the computer, but all the way 'round it works.

If you allready have a taste for Mr. Doctorows works, this is not one to miss.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Someone Needs An Editor 30. Juli 2005
Von Brandon Whitfeld - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm sure Cory Doctorow really is a "leading voice" of "next-generation SF" as the book jacket brazenly announces, but what does that really mean?

Kudos to Doctorow for fearlessly creating this fuzzy, hyperreal universe that bends and stretches all conventional narrative technique. Doctorow must see himself as some sort of latter-day literary infidel (after all, the protagonist's parents are a washing machine and a mountain) on a torch-blazing mission to the stars.

But with all the experimenting going on here, all the lip-smacking, throw-it-to-the-wind risk-taking in the writing, I found neither the characters nor the storyline compelling enough (or developed enough) to make this book interesting or enjoyable in the least.

This book is mainly comprised of lots and lots of technobabble, with very little substance. Is that what "next generation SF" really is? Isn't that kind of pretentious?

Plus, there's a pretty tangible mean streak in the text that is given neither thematic justification nor a much-needed irony; there are flippant bouts of violent atrocities on almost every page, and I began to tire quickly of all this bitter malice and revenge.
