Neal Stephenson is a blazing new force on the sci-fi scene. With the groundbreaking cyberpunk novel Snow Crash, he has "vaulted onto the literary stage." It weaves virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility - in short, it is the gigathriller of the information age.

A very clever book.

Overall
4 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 01-16-03

Snow Crash is not only very entertaining, it has a series of clever twists and a strong back story that set it aside from many science fiction stories.

Comedy and drama are well entwined throughout, neither detracting from the overall mood and pace of the book and the protagonists are well drawn.

I can highly recommend the excellent audio recording, which is a great format for this novel.
