Ne of Time's best English language novels A mind altering romp through a future America so bizarre so outrageous you'll recognize it immediately Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel weaving virtual reality Sumerian myth and just about everything in between with a cool hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age In reality Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo's CosoNostra Pizza Inc but in the Metaverse he's a warrior prince Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus that's striking down hackers everywhere he races along the neon lit streets on a search and destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse Praise for Snow Crash Snow Crash is a cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon's Vineland This is no mere hyperbole The San Francisco Bay Guardian Fast forward free style mall mythology for the twenty first century William Gibson Brilliantly realized Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrowThe New York Times Book Review. I didn't love it The high octane opening seems to have fooled everybody The opening feels like a short story that was later built on to make a novel so irrelevant is it to most of the plot and even to the protagonistIt's very long and draws a lot of spurious analogies between biological and computer viruses that don't really fly mixed in with clumsy pages of information about Sumeria or somewhere which turns out later to be relevant but only as flimsy justification for a fairly boring plot deviceThere's some good action but it sure does go on a bit The whole novel does It should have been 100 pages shorter at least and not as accomplished as people seem to make out I'm really not sure why this didn't sink into the slush of post Neuromancer 90s sci fi and disappear forever Its vision of virtual reality isn't just poor in retrospect it's poor even for its time unimaginative and filled with convenient rules that serve the plot but not the world buildingBizarrely regular coders employed by corporations to do their jobs are referred to as 'hackers' That's not what a hacker is NealPoints for Strong female lead even if there's constant partial nudity and sex references; fantastic opening chapter or two; consistent writing and plenty of action if that's what floats your boat; diversityI can't say I recommend it unless you mainly read sci fi in which case it's definitely not the worst of 90s sci fi6510David BrookesAuthor of 'The Gun of Our Maker'
