Sigh The first Doctorow book I wanted to walkaway fromI love Doctorow I fell in love with Makers and never looked back So after Pirate Cinema I was waiting for something new and this book read in the byline like a new Makers I was elated Sadly it was notThe problem with this book was that it was just so sure of itself the whole time The future was bleak and rightfully so but nothing felt tangible The people were always spewing pages long rabble like a conversation between university students after a bong sesh It was just so blatantly anti establishment that there felt like there was no storyBrief periods of intense plot building fell away to a monologue about001%ers and somehow this spun into downloading consciousness but nothing ever materializedI hate hate hate to knock a Doctorow book His language was incredible the characters lovable and detestable all at once but nothing resonated to make it a cohesive read It felt preachy and Doctorow is at his best when he preaches through the layers of plot not outright riffing for seemingly endless periods on philosophical and economical world issues I almost would have preferred this as a form of non fiction some sort of philosophical journey with bits of potential fortune tellingI would recommend only for true Doctorow fans because there is a lot to love here But it won t be for everyone

I was disappointed with WALKAWAY There was some great world building but I did not connect with the characters or their motivations I liked the original premise but I found the story to be disjointed and the pacing confused me in a couple places

CHARACTERS ✓ Walkaway Cory Doctorow’s first adult novel in eight years an epic tale of revolution love post scarcity and the end of deathHubert Vernon Rudolph Clayton Irving Wilson Alva Anton Jeff Harley Timothy Curtis Cleveland Cecil Ollie Edmund Eli Wiley Marvin Ellis Espinoza known to his friends as Hubert Etc was too old to be at that Communist partyBut after watching the breakdown of modern society he really has no where left to be except amongst the dregs of disaffected youth who party all night and heap scorn on the sheep they see on the. Wow I admit I went in blind to this only know the title the cover and the fact that I ve been a big fan of Cory Doctorow ever since Little Brother I thought it was going to be something of a thriller with perhaps a political and especially an awesome technological bent to itI didn t expect it to be this huge The ideas in this novel can easily be ranked up with the very biggest novels of the last centuryLet me explain Walkaway as a term is nothing than dropping out of the ranks of the norm of going off to live simply if not precisely without tech then at least giving up on the whole rat race that is defined here as the default It s not hippies although there are those too It s a collection of all the people that this world has no use for the people that despair under debts they can t pay lives that bring them no joy of people who realize that they have always been slaves in everything but nameThese are the people who walked away from it all It s in the future so we have an honest free beer with open source technologies 3d printers much advanced than what we have here that works with everything from clothing to medicines and the open idealism that collides with regular assholes that you ll find in any human population Only these communities are benefited with social modeling techniues even newer tech that can scan and model human minds and much in everyone s hands These are people who gave up on wealth and status to live in all kinds of communes and social experiments many of which fail but each improves upon the last until better and better open source societies are created improved upon and tested and while this shouldn t have been a big deal to the rest of the world that was busy doing its old thing the Walkaways stumbled upon success and success outperforming and making the Default society jealous and you know what jealous people do when they have guns and they want what the defenseless haveI m just barely scratching the surface here There s a lot of great characters a lot of really beautiful stories and situations and social experiments and theory on human consciousness There s a lot of tragedy and hope too spread out over a great long span of time A lifetime you might say But by the end who s to say how long that isThis is really creative and hard hitting exploratory SF This is the stuff that will stay in my consciousness long long after hundreds of lighter SF have rolled through me This is that kind of novel that can change or break a whole society if it takes offNow I can t say that I absolutely agree with all the points that Doctorow makes but his vision of the future and the erudition and thoughtful expression of all these fantastic ideas than makes up for any complaints I may have He s a believer in humanity He believes in peopleThere s something truly wonderful about that Hope
