Publisher's Summary

Here is the propulsive, shockingly plausible sequel to New York Times best seller Daemon.

In one of the most buzzed-about debuts of 2009, Daniel Suarez introduced a terrifying vision of a new world order, controlled by the Daemon, an insidious computer program unleashed by a hi-tech wunderkind, Daemon captured the attention of the tech community, became a New York Times and Indie best seller, and left readers hungry for more. Well, more is here, and it's even more gripping than its predecessor.

In the opening chapters of Freedom, the Daemon is firmly in control, using an expanded network of real-world, dispossessed darknet operatives to tear apart civilization and rebuild it anew. Soon civil war breaks out in the American Midwest, in a brutal wave of violence that becomes known as the Corn Rebellion. Former detective Pete Sebeck, now the Daemon's most powerful - though reluctant - operative, must lead a small band of enlightened humans toward a populist movement designed to protect the new world order. But the private armies of global business are preparing to crush the Daemon once and for all.

In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    "Awesome! Felt like I was in an RPG"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Freedom (TM) to be better than the print version?

    If you like role playing games or technology that involves artificial intelligence you will enjoy this book.

    Story
    "A good continuation of Daemon"

    Daemon was one of the most interesting, detailed, engrossing... just near perfect books I've listened to. Freedom (TM) is a worthy follow up but the story somehow was just didn't suck me in the way Daniel Suarez's first book did. Maybe the freshness of how different Daemon was from other books wore off? I can't recommend this book or the first highly enough.

    Story
    "Awesome Geeky Sifi"
    Would you listen to Freedom (TM) again? Why?

    This was a excellent book and I will be listening to it again. Great story line.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    After going through Daemon which is the first book I found any opertunity I could to listen to this book.


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Jeff Gurner does great with the male voices but they should have brought in a female for some of his female voices.


    Any additional comments?

    This a a great book for those sifi geeks and even some of the thriller people out there. The only thing that might turn certain people off is the details of the technology. I'm in I.T. so knew what they wer talking about and loved it but those not into it those parts might bore you.

    Story
    "Top 5 fave books"
    If you could sum up Freedom (TM) in three words, what would they be?

    Wow wow WOW!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It takes the plausible and projects it on today's events


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end was very interesting, again, especially given today's social/economical/political climate.


    Any additional comments?

    This and Daemon have to be one of my top 5 fiction reads ever. Hope they make a movie.

    "Awesome conclusion!"
    Have you listened to any of Jeff Gurner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Jeff Gurner continues his excellent delivery in this well written conclusion to Daemon.


    Any additional comments?

    I picked up Daemon and Freedom based on reviews I read here. If it hadn't been for Audible I would never have discovered this amazing story.

    Story
    "I regret wasting a credit on this book"

    I have no idea why I bought this book. I don't like books that dispatch with reality and make things up out of the blue. I guess I downloaded it because some reviews said that this is a geek's book. Just what is a geek's book anyway? It isn't a book for someone who works in IT, or a scientist concerned with the natural world. It seems to be a book for alternate reality gamers. Anyway, this story isn't for me. I don't appreciate sophomoric and stereotypical attacks on evil corporations, evil government institutions, and evil economic systems. I made it through 4-5 chapters and barfed. Is this a book for OWS?

    Story
    "One in a million"

    I am a platinum member who listens to many, many audiobooks. I have never before felt the urge to write a review until after I listened to this series. This series is incredible. I am actually somewhat worried that this book may have ruined science fiction for me as everything else seems boring by comparison. If you do not listen to this series, you will have missed out on a true gem. Start with DAEMON, as you must know the background, but then continue on with this book. You'll be glad that you did.

    As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!

    "Occupy WallStreet meets computer world take over"

    I kept trying to suspend my disbelief while listening to this book, but the lack of the writer's knowledge of economics was distracting. Very disappointing. Waste of a perfectly good credit.
