I've been meaning to post something about Cory Doctorow's latest novel, Someone Comes To Town, Someone Leaves Town, which was released last week. I like Cory's conversational writing style, humor and sense of technology — nothing like the cheesy pseudo-technology so often experienced in hollywood films.
In fact, I'm about to install the e-book on my Zire 72 today and begin the story, so I can't comment yet. However, judging by Doctorow's works (which I've enjoyed very much), I think I'll enjoy this novel as well. We'll see. :-)
Update 2005-12-30: After reading Cory's latest novel, I have to say it wasn't as good for me as Down and Out, Eastern Standard Tribe or A Place So Foreign. This story was not very focused in comparison, and I had a hard time grasping the idea of family members that were mountains, washing machines and dessicated corpses. I really wanted to like the story and did enjoy Cory's writing style, but the whole of the book just felt a bit too disjointed.
