In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive. It has been programmed as a predator. It is evolving swiftly, becoming more deadly with each passing hour. Every attempt to destroy it has failed. And we are the prey.

I would rather have read Snowcrash a second time

This book had a great concept but moved very slowly. It was painful to watch the main character miss all the clues. He finally put everything together at the very end when most readers probably already figured it out. I really could have spent my time better listening to SnowCrash a second time then waste it with this book.
