Snow Crash

«Stephenson excels in marrying geekspeak with riotous action»

Guardian

"This Snow Crash thing--is it a virus, a drug, or a religion?"
Juanita shrugs. "What's the difference?"


The only relief from the sea of logos is within the well-guarded borders of the Burbclaves. Is it any wonder that most sane folks have forsaken the real world and chosen to live in the computer-generated universe of virtual reality?

In a major city, the size of a dozen Manhattans, is a domain of pleasures limited only by the imagination. But now a strange new computer virus called Snow Crash is striking down hackers everywhere, leaving an unlikely young pizza delivery man as humankind's last best hope.

The perfect cyberpunk sci-fi read, Snow Crash is an equally worthy successor to William Gibson's Neuromancer and predecessor to Ernest Cline's Ready Player One.

Anmeldelser

«Stephenson excels in marrying geekspeak with riotous action»

Guardian

«A cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon's Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole»

San Francisco Bay Guardian

«Brilliantly realized. Stephenson [is] an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow»

The New York Times

«A fantastic, slam-bang-overdrive, supersurrealistic, comic-spooky whirl through a tomorrow that is already happening. Stephenson is intelligent, perceptive, hip»

Timothy Leary

«Like a Pynchon novel with the brakes removed»

Washington Post

Medlemmers vurdering

H
Håkon – 10.03.2005

– I "Snow Crash" blir vår nokså nære fremtid tatt igjen av sivilisasjonens fjerne fortid når et virus som har eksistert i flere tusen år blir vekket til live igjen. En hacker, den moderne tids mirakelmann, må ta opp kampen mot kreftene som truer med å ta kontrollen over menneskene. Heldigvis har Hiro allerede støtt på kuréren Y.T., som med sine "skate"ferdigheter og sin skarpe tunge kan bringe de fleste maktfaktorer ut av balanse. Dette er en bok fylt med mengder av god, gammeldags action, ispedd profetiske innblikk i en digital verden som ligner på den utviklingen av cyberspace vi nå har begynt å se for alvor. En svært fascinerende bonus er de historiske trådene som trekkes til den sumeriske kulturen og Babels tårn - uten at jeg kunne skille mellom fakta og fiksjon på dette området. Mitt første møte med Neal Stephenson, men definitivt ikke det siste.
