    Richard Forthrast created T’Rain, a multibillion-dollar, massively multiplayer online role-playing game. But T’Rain’s success has also made it a target. Hackers have struck gold by unleashing REAMDE, a virus that encrypts all of a player’s electronic files and holds them for ransom. They have also unwittingly triggered a deadly war beyond the boundaries of the game’s virtual universe - and Richard is at ground zero.

    Story

    This book, which may seem intimidating in its length before you start, isn't long enough! No one explores the interweaving of layers of culture and realities the way that Neal Stephenson does. Nor does anyone turn the world into plot line as well as Stephenson. His attention to detail and insightful research is constantly evident in the gritty realism he manages to create as he takes us from nation to nation and sub culture to sub culture. This is an epic work of crime, gaming, espionage, terrorism, love, sex, death, and redemption that I just couldn't stop listening to.

    Stephenson also takes us from inner world to inner world beautifully, jumping from protagonist to villain to new protagonist and so forth seamlessly and with a strong sense of emotional authenticity.

    Malcolm Hillgartner is a wonderful narrator with a great range of characterizations that never get in the way of the story's flow and I never got tired of hearing.
