Overview

The propulsive, shockingly plausible sequel to New York Times bestseller Daemon

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 bestseller, 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(tm), 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.

Freedom 4.4 out of 5 based on 1 ratings. 205 reviews.

I just finished reading this book. Although not as quite as exciting as its predecessor: Daemon, it holds your attention until the conclusion. I would recommend this book to be read after Daemon.

I posted a review of the first book, Daemon. Should add that both books are hard to put down. Freedom delivers some satisfactory answers to the serious issues Suarez raises. This has a fair amount of intellectual subtext but Suarez delivers in terms of blood, gore, and action. I am not sure he has correctly identified the true villains but points to multi-national corporations and does accurately portray the capture of our government's regulatory and legislative apparatus. If you liked this you might want to explore Robert Ferrigno's trilogy, Shadow of the Assasin, Prayers for the Assassin and whatever the third one is titled.

A great sequel to Daemon, the first from this author. Not as good as Daemon, but very close. If you haven't read that, then I do not recommend reading this book first. Daemon should absolutely be read first so that you can thoroughly enjoy this one. If you like technology, video games, sci-fi, super cool characters, crazy ideas, and fun, then read both of these books. Read both of these books in a span of about 5 days. Do not start before bed if you are looking for sleep. I am really excited about this author and only wish there was more out there by him.

Freedom had me breathless and late for work on more than one day. The storyline scares this IT/Webmaster with it's potential realism and I found myself needing to see what happened in the next chapter. This is pure escapism with a strong touch of what if?

Excellent book that was hard to put down, though you have to read Daemon first so you know what is going on in Freedom. I agree with some reviewers that there are more slow spots in Freedom than in Daemon, you just have to power through them. Very highly recommended. Techno-thriller that answers the questions left open at the end of Daemon (especially concerning "The Major"). Looking forward to reading new books by this author.

Not the best prose in the world (John Steinbeck) but a very good story.

I recently read Daemon and was blown away. I was very excited that it's sequel was coming out. I have to say I was disappointed. There is not as much action and I feel that the story gets blogged down at points. He story of the Daemon does get wrapped up pretty much but I think we could get another story. I word of warning-You must read Daemon before reading Freedom. If you do not you will be completely lost.

The headline says it all. Great science fiction for technology oriented readers. Deamon is the first in the series and is a must read.

Good, easy tech-thriller book to read. Read Daemon first however.
