I don't often comment on reviews, but I thought that this missed an important point: Little Brother is a story about kids who discover that no amount of hacking and direct action is a substitute for civic participation, the rule of law and genuine, open mass movements. I also wondered at "glorious American consistency" given that I'm a Canadian who lives in London.

Say what you will, but I LOVE Love Hotels. Alice and I always try one when we're in Tokyo. The theming, the elaborate Toto toilets, the bizarre softcore porn on the TV (why not hardcore?) the whole *experience* -- it's brilliant. As a visitor to Tokyo, I often find that by 3PM I'm awfully pooped and ready to collapse. Nothing better for it, really, than an hour in a Love Hotel, enjoying the amenities and one another, then maybe a 30-minute foot massage at a Shiatsu place, at which point I'm ready to climb Tokyo Tower.
