Fiction review: Attack Surface

Title: Attack Surface

Author: Cory Doctorow

After reading this book, I am now officially wary of my phone, my thermostat, my Kindle and various other devices in my possession.

The book centers on Masha, who makes a living analyzing and using the results of surveillance software. She’s a good person, with good intentions, and we all know where that leads.

The events of this book also touch on events that happened in two of Doctorow’s earlier books.

I greatly enjoyed this book. Masha is an interesting character who lives in much more of a moral gray zone than the main character of the two other books (Little Brother and Homeland.) I did find myself wanting to go back and reread those other two, since now I have another perspective on the events.
