David sez, "Yahoo Group's Hard SF group chose Little Brother as the book to read and discuss in December. I could not read the 'dead tree' edition, as I'm visually impaired. I took advantage of your Creative Commons license, and generated MP3 files from the .txt file. The synthetic voice is one of the better ones, however to limit the file sizes I created them at 64Kbs. At that rate the voice is on the flat side, but not 'computer sounding'. I posted the files to archive.org."
Fantastic! And just a reminder, there's a remixable, DRM-free audiobook from Random House Audio available here.

“I can talk about Little Brother in terms of its bravura political speculation or its brilliant uses of technology — each of which make this book a must-read — but, at the end of it all, I’m haunted by the universality of Marcus’s rite-of-passage and struggle, an experience any teen today is going to grasp: the moment when you choose what your life will mean and how to achieve it.
