Science fiction is Stephenson's hands is a lense to understand some of our own situation.
Jennifer Wiltsie's narration is sublime and of top caliber.
I would only complain of the ending because I wanted to stay with the characters and story myself. I feel, though, that the conclusion had been found. Stephenson's endings are reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's, and just as PKD's have their magic, both create a space in the reader that lives on.
A great book read wonderfully. Well recommended.
I suggest sampling the reading before purchasing. The narrator's reading style lacks connection to the text's natural rhythm and is really quite annoying.
