Synopsis

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  cyber-sensibility to bring us the gigantic thriller of the  information age. In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers  pizza for Uncle Enzo's Cosa Nostra Inc., but it  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. Snow Crash  is a mind-altering romp through a future America  so bizarre, so outrageous... you'll recognize it  immediately.

    Fast slow fast fast done

    Great character book, but I still can't really picture the setting. I really like the idea of the metaverse / physical virtual reality set up the way it is.

    Reads like a movie

    This book reads exceptionally quick. It is packed with action throughout. When you consider the date it was published, the author really has insight into technology because much of what he predicts is close to real life.

    A fun read

    Faster paced than Cryptonomicon, but with his amazing attention to detail, this is a fun read!
