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 verbal video game

I gave this 3 stars all around only because I do not know if this is a good book or not as I am not a fan of this fantasy type book. If was a bit confusing to me when I compare it to the few fantasy books I have read. Usually they are in the fantasy world or not. This book kept mixing the two together, and I found it to be frustrating rather than interesting.

Good Premise; Decent Execution

Would you try another book from Daniel Suarez and/or Jeff Gurner?

Yes. While this was lacking in some ways for me, I enjoyed the idea.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I think the idea behind the story was good, but it went on a little long in my opinion.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Jeff Gurner?

Yes.

Did Freedom (TM) inspire you to do anything?

No.

I liked it more than the first book in the series!

Not only did I like it more than the first book in the series it gave me a higher appreciation for it as well.

It will be a while before I listen to it again (if I ever do) but I have to say I enjoyed it.

Surprisingly loved it!

I like to save my 5 stars for the really epic books that move me...The Help, Memoirs of a Geisha, etc. but I felt like I was doing it an injustice I surprisingly really liked this book, couldn't stop listening and felt I was getting a bit of an education in technology. It's sci-fi I think , not my usual choice but I took a chance because of its high rating. It didn't disappoint. I am only sorry there is not another book in the series.
