    In late 2010, thousands of hacktivists joined a mass digital assault by Anonymous on the websites of VISA, MasterCard, and PayPal to protest their treatment of WikiLeaks. Splinter groups then infiltrated the networks of totalitarian governments in Libya and Tunisia, and an elite team of six people calling themselves LulzSec attacked the FBI, CIA, and Sony. They were flippant and taunting, grabbed headlines, and amassed more than a quarter of a million Twitter followers.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to We Are Anonymous the most enjoyable?

    Abby Craden does a pretty good job narrating, apart from the painfully obvious mispronunciations of a couple words. But it doesn't detract from the story and her voice suits the book well, often conveying senses of foreboding, dread, and hope as the author clearly intended in her story. The accents are a bit hokey, but it's a small issue.


    If you could give We Are Anonymous a new subtitle, what would it be?

    How the World of Anonymous was Uncovered


    Any additional comments?

    I hope that the author updates her book with the recent developments into the LulzSec and Anonymous stories.

  • Lost Kingdom: Hawaii's Last Queen, the Sugar Kings, and America's First Imperial Adventure

    A thriving monarchy had ruled over Hawaii for generations. Taro fields and fish ponds had long sustained native Hawaiians but sugar plantations had been gradually subsuming them. This fractured, vulnerable Hawaii was the country that Queen Lili‘uokalani, or Lili‘u, inherited when she came to power at the end of the nineteenth century.

    "Best History of Hawai'i I've Ever Read"

    Story

    I loved the book and the performance was strong (but nothing amazing, hence the 4 stars). I've read several histories of Hawai'i, and while the book could have been more comprehensive (what history book couldn't?), I thought it delved deep into most of the important points that lead to the annexation. Give it a read!
