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.

wow - a must read
Normally, I don't write reviews - But after listening to this and Daemon (which you must listen to Daemon first) - I'm convinced, Suarez is a great writer and Gruner is a great reader. This book is good for one that likes fast paced story telling. Even if you don't get allot of the technology (which I do) you will enjoy the story. To tell you how much you will actually WANT to follow the story, I completed this book in about 3 days (normally for a book this size it takes me about a week and a half). A great read, and a good one if you've got a long trip or vacation travel ahead. (NOTE: Daemon and Freedom(TM) are not really safe for children's ears - so headphones are probably a good idea)

Couldn't wait another month
I picked up Daemon with this month's credits and as soon as I finished it I knew I wasn't going to be able to wait for until next month's credits to listen to Freedom and bought it immediately. Definitely the right call!
