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.

    "A plausible view of the future"

    After reading Daemon, I couldn't wait to get my hands on Freedom. I can only weep as it appears to only be a two book series, the concept behind it is phenomenal.

    Daniel Suarez, being a tech consultant before becoming an author, has a keen eye for technical details and everything he mentions is either already a technology or is actively being worked on, which for me, is a rare treat to be treasured.

    I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves technology and cares about our society and where it's headed.

    Story
    "Don't drink the kool aid."

    Suarez really takes the concept of a networked 4th dimension to the limit. Really makes you think. Unfortunatley the underliying theme is a liberal manifesto with all the cornerstones of evil power hungry corporations, alternative energy, racism, inept immoral military, social justice, and it goes on. If you listen closely the author excuses his new social order from the scrutinity he imposes on the current. Aside from all that this book ask a key question very cleverly...does the end justifiy the means? It's a shame that the author answers for you with a resounding yes that supports the real root of much evil in the real world...social engineering. When listening keep in mind that the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    "Amazing tech thriller"

    Great finalizing piece to Daemon. The technology used is not all "smoke and mirrors". Suarez provides an easy to follow explanation of the technology he uses in this novel. Gurner is also a great narrator.

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

    inspiring, tense, exciting


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

    yes, the point when everything looks like there is no chance for the town then the burning man shows up, to the end was an amazing roller coaster.


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

    just the ability to passivly hear the story while doing something else. the voice acting wasn't distracting, and that is the best thing to hope for.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    freedom(tm) isn't free


    Any additional comments?

    highly suggest this and Daemon to anyone interested in technology. Read Daemon first obviously.

    Absolutely, the storyline was excellent and the voice work made it easy to discern the characters from each other.


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

    The plot work was full of twists and surprises, kept you wanted more. This plot was so good that on a recent car trip I took, my wife listened for 3 hours and got hooked on the book.


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

    Daemon. Both were excellent!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Only that I didnt want the story to end. Excellent work

    The first scene inthe book with the introduction of the machines

    "Great Unique book"
    What made the experience of listening to Freedom (TM) the most enjoyable?

    Jeff Gurner does a great job bringing the characters to life in this story. More importantly Daniel Suarez is masterful and bridging feasible technology with social commentary. This book, even more then its prequel brings to life the theories expounded on in Economic Hitman and couples it with a behind the scenes look at how our current path could easily unfold.

    Unlike most dystopian books Suarez weaves hope through his book, showing how the fringes of society can save us all, while wrapping the story in a great techno thriller.


    What other book might you compare Freedom (TM) to and why?

    It is unique. Some compare it to Ready Player and Zero day but I feel it is in its own league. I wish there were more like it.


    Which character – as performed by Jeff Gurner – was your favorite?

    Chunky Monkey


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    The first time yes pretty close to one sitting.
