This book is a fantastic look at both sides of the 'big brother' conversation. I loved this book. With each new technology introduced, by heart rate rose. What's even better is that I honestly didn't know whose side I was on. I kept waffling back and forth. I could see both sides. I didn't 'love' the ending, and I was very frustrated with Mae, but it was a realistic look at how easy it is to suck people into almost any way of thinking. Would demoxie really be a bad thing? Past Perfect sounds like a fun thing to try. The health monitors in the book seemed like a perfect way to see what's going on with your body. I found myself nodding along with almost all the announcements. I'm a little scared that I would be one of the masses if any of these got released. It's not that I don't understand the warnings of this book. Of course I see the dangers of total control of all information. However, isn't it possible to have some of these technologies without total control? Maybe I'm naive. At any rate, it's a GREAT read and will start a conversation with yourself that I feel everyone should have, at least with themselves!
