Me, evil??? hehehehedwndrgn said:Shux, now I'm going to have to find this book. Master, you really are evil
If I remember Snow Crash was going to be a game but coding/tek wasn't advanced enough to do what NS wanted so it ended up as a book instead. That might explain some of the heavier info dumps. Brilliant book though. So's Cryptonomicon but in a much less cyberpunky way.A great book - for its time really far sighted, lots of emergent cyberpunk themes - and it doesn't really date that much now. Some of it a bit heavy - all the Sumerian mythology and stuff, but some of the concepts it handles are really intriguing - the franchising, the burbclaves, the Metaverse.
Yes it is cyberpunk, quite punky. Worth reading if you like this sort. I liked the first half better. Summary without spoilers:What kind of story is it? Is it cyberpunk?
Many people have recommend this to me and i have decided to try it.
Anyone can give a short summary of the story?
I usually check wiki for that but sometimes i read too far and see spoilers...
