Little Brother is a dystopian cyberpunk story which deals with subject matters of privacy, terrorism and police state. It had been described as "a rousing tale of techno-geek rebellion."
I know this is a sensitive issue now more than ever, but I am NOT interested in discussing any political matter at hand; I just want to analyse the storyform because I believe this story holds up really well.
My attempt at storyform breakdown is down below. I am working to illustrate each points with specific examples. I will post all the illustration examples of appreciations here once I'm finished. I would appreciate any feedback if anyone read the book.
The author even provides with free digital copy of the novel if anyone is interested with critiquing my analysis. http://craphound.com/littlebrother/download/
