The point of this book is that our society is no longer run by the Government we've elected. They are puppets. The puppet-masters are big business who dictate everything. Their goal is not the well-being of society but how to get richer and gain more power. Democracy, true democracy, doesn't exist anymore. Laws are being created to serve the puppet-masters and we are really slaves to the system under the guise of freedom. This could be considered a non-fiction book were it not for Daniel Suarez' character Matthew Sobol.

Sobol was a forward-thinker who was also a computer genius. In Daemon, he comes across as someone with a grudge against society. We know he had a plan but we were unaware of the end-game. Freedom(TM) shows him to be our saviour.

Daniel Suarez is brilliant. I truly believe he sees all the problems in the world today and has come up with a way to fix it all. I'd like to say this is all science fiction but I'm guessing it's really science fact. I'd also like to say this is a dystopian future but it really is an image of our dystopian now. If this story is actually a means of gauging the public interest in this becoming a reality, I'd like to be the first in line to join this revolution. Release the Daemon!!

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?

First off, read the first book (Daemon). Otherwise FreedomTM won't make much sense to you.

Pros :
- The main global idea is interesting enough. The book makes you question the current economic system without being too... pushy about it. It makes you think, which is always a good thing about books in general.
- Interesting technological concepts, but a tad too far fetched (sci-fi?).
- Main vilain (the Major) is all evil (I liked that for some reason).

Cons :
- Way too many characters ruin pacing.
- Chapters don't seem to flow from one to another. The story limps.
- Sobol is hardly spoken of, even though he made the Daemon.
- While we get to understand most protagonists, we don't feel too much empathy for them (always a bad thing).

Conclusion:
- Daemon was a page turner, this one is not. Read it if you liked the first one and want to experience the finale.

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.

While I foundation both books entertaining page turners, this one fell far short on the technology and character developments of Deamon. I found the characters lacked any new development in this second book and Suarez glazed over his cast in this book with glimmers of development, but little resolution.
