Not too long ago, I blogged about a Book called Daemon. Freedom is the sequel to Daemon.
I enjoyed reading this book. The story continues from Daemon, but in a largely different direction. I like the direction the book took, for the most part. I was hoping that there would be more tech talk and not so much of the sci-fi tek. I liked the sci-fi tek, I just thought it would have been more down to earth to keep it closer to reality.
Daemon was scarily real. The exploits were real, the danger seemed real. In Freedom, I felt it made a big reach. When looking at both books together though, it seems like a natural progression.
I like the plot. The story culminates with a confrontation at a compound in Texas. I really thought that the confrontation was a huge let-down. I really expected more conflict at that point. Everything was mounting to that, but the ultimate goal was to demonstrate that the group of people from the darknet still could think for themselves.
In the end, it was a good story. I would like to have some of the technology. I must also admit that Freedom was harder to put down than Daemon for me. I found myself rooting in favor of the Daemon. I started rooting for the Daemon at the end of the first book.
