Makers - Cory Doctorow I found myself comparing this to William Gibson's Blue Ant series, mostly unfavorably (from me, that series netted only 3 stars). This book was rambling and long, with mostly unconnected sections. It was originally serialized on Tor's website, and perhaps it was written with that in mind. I enjoyed the character of Suzanne Church (even if she was mostly 2D) and the epilog, which was really excellent. The idea of Makers was also interesting, but didn't feel well thought out. Bringing Disney in half-way through felt very forced. I'll look for other books by Cory Doctorow, but after a break.
