It's a dangerous world out there

In a world wrecked by climate change, in a society owned by the ultra-rich, in a city hollowed out by industrial flight, Hubert, Etc, Seth and Natalie have nowhere else to be and nothing better to do.

Walkaway

What bloggers and reviewers are saying.....

Doctorow uses this speculative fiction world to explore sociological and economic ideas within an idealized humanist framework. 

Walkaway is awash in unrestrained nerdery, including what has to be the best description of the psychology of watching a progress bar ever put to digital paper.
