How about creating a plausible plot. I'm not even talking about the sci-fi aspect of a human-computer interface. I'm talking about the incredibly stupid series of events that results in a bag lady becoming a vice presidential candidate. This is just moronic. And I'm not sure which one of them is responsible for excess of ridiculous similes, but I could do without those too. Are they being paid by the metaphor?
The narrator was fine.
Neal Stephenson usually has the capacity to create a compelling read around some feature of new technology or hook. That was the interface. The problem is it was applied to the most ridiculous political thriller ever.
Uggh. Disappointing. Worse I didn't return it in time to get my credit back.
