Format: Mass Market Paperback
I was one of the lucky readers who came a bit late to "Daemon," which is the first half of this story. You really must read "Daemon" first, to understand what's going on in this volume, and I was able to read both with just over a month between. Author Daniel Suarez really has one big book in the two volumes; well, it would be one HUGE book but some pruning would have been possible, even advisable.

In spite of that, I enjoyed Freedom (TM) in ways that I can't quite explain. There are endless battle scenes, and even some gory torture scenes, which I usually avoid but not this time. The new social order, one character says, was "beta tested by gamers"--and I've never been a gamer. It's full of roiling action and finishes with a lot of loose ends, which isn't bothering me at all.

"Freedom(TM)," like "Daemon," pulses with futuristic technology that's both scary and exciting. Just as mind-bending is the utopian-dystopian model of society, based on regional sustainability and interdependence. The Darknet is created by a legacy of background programs created by a dead computer genius, and members take their levels and reputation rankings from the votes of other Darknet members. In the "persistent world" of the Darknet, a raw democracy prevails. Some of the most powerful figures are avatars, non-living characters; they're never presented otherwise, because for all its technological magic, this is not packaged as a work of fantasy.

The iconic quest of Darknet champion Pete Sebeck is a counterpoint to the passionate intensity of the villains. Early in the book Suarez poses the question: can good grow from evil intentions?

I would agree 500% that Daemon was one exciting read and Freedom took rite off following in this exciting computer and social networking world... You have to read Daemon first but trust me buy them both cause the second you finish the last word in Daemon your reaching over and starting Freedom. They flow together well and I totally enjoyed them... my biggest problem was I cant wait for the next book... Come on Daniel Suarez dont let this end at Freedom. Your writing and technology vision is so refreshing.

The sequel to Daemon, which isn't made clear pretty much anywhere on Amazon, this book is about the growth of the real-life civilization created by an online game, and the forces that must destroy it at all costs to ensure their own survival.

Daniel Suarez is an excellent writer and an even better story-teller. If you like techno-thrillers at all, you have to read this book!

My only complaint is that there isn't a third in the series.

Daemon was an awesome book and left the reader hanging, and I'm glad they did. Freedom managed to once again capture my interest and I found it hard to put down (I was up until 3am last night reading). This continuation was riveting and well written. Well done Daniel Suarez!
