The Xnetters weren't happy about the stepped-up police serveillance, but they weren't gong to take it laying down.
SummaryAdd a Summary
Marcus is a likable if undeniably cocky hero — he hacks cellphones, sasses clueless authority figures and quotes the Declaration of Independence from memory. That cockiness gets scuffed a little in the disaster, and both the story and Marcus himself acquire grit and interest as a result. The fear and humiliation he experiences in interrogation are vividly detailed, and afterward Marcus takes a principled stand that leads him into an ingenious program of resistance and civil rights activism.
