    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    This is a great story that keeps you hooked from the beginning all the way to an exciting conclusion. I've been an Audible member for over a couple of years and normally don't take the time to write a review. However, this book was one of my favorites I have listened to over the past couple of years. I felt compelled to let anyone know that is searching for a great story -- I believe you will be very happy with this choice.

    Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

    A. Tuck says: "Classic Stephenson"
    "Don't bother"
    Overall

    I've never given up on a book before, but after 5 hours of listening and hoping the story becomes more interesting, I admit defeat. This is a terrible book. Don't waste your time (as I already have).
