A well done reading of a story worth hearing.
I'm not a huge fan of classic literature, but this story is still relevant and powerful, particularly if you know any sullen young "intellectual" men with chips on their shoulders, or happen to be one.
If you like Neal Stephenson, you should love this. While Diamond Age is my favorite of his works, I think his skills improve with each book he writes.
The only book of his I've read and been underwhelmed by was Snow Crash, and I feel like Reamde was his return to, and successful re-imagining of, the cyber-punk, MMORPG-based novel.
Thanks Neal! Keep 'em coming!
AWESOME! This guy is among the best audio book performers I've ever heard! As much as I enjoyed the book, I actually think Hillgartner's reading made it even more enjoyable than it would have been in print. His accents were fun and well-differentiated! I always knew who was talking, and it spiced up some already atomically spicy characters.
