I'm very interested in writing a paper on Little Brother. While I was reading it I was very forcibly reminded of 1984 by George Orwell. Considering the blatant reference in the title, I believe that Cory Doctorow wanted his readers to draw on the collective knowledge surrounding that work and all the implications of a highly monitored world. Therefore, I think I would like to write a topic discussing Little Brother and 1984, concentrating on the influences the latter had on Little Brother while also examining the similarities and differences of the societies (and the government's interaction and interference) in both books.
Any suggestions, ideas, criticisms?
