Neal Stephenson, "the hottest science fiction writer in America", takes science fiction to dazzling new levels. The Diamond Age is a stunning tale; set in 21st-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens what a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life, and the entire future of humanity, is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.

this is a great sci-fi saga! this author really has a talent for creating worlds. the lady that reads the story is incredibly talented, sometimes having to tackle 10 different accents and characters in the same chapter. the ending really left me wanting to hear more.
