Down and Out

leave a comment »

Just finished reading Cory Doctorow‘s novel Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom. (Doctorow is a co-editor of Boing Boing, which Technorati has consistently rated as the most popular blog on the internet for some time.) Thought it was pretty decent, fun to read, well-imagined. It’s a sci-fi story set in the fairly impending future, but definitely not a space-opera type deal. It’s just a story about a guy who lives and works at Disney World, and about his life getting crapped up, and him trying to redeem himself. The story was good, definintely worth the time. Don’t know that I’d pay money for it, but fortunately, you don’t have to.
