Amusing read... but not Doctorow's best.

4 stars

I was entertained by this highly speculative fiction, although it had its lengthy moments. I must give Doctorow credit for spinning the tale to its most logical end, and being very stringent in his world-building. However, I like his writing best when he's contemporary and political.
