Description

Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison a writer so original, he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age.

"Snow Crash"

In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo s CosaNostra Pizza, Inc., but in the Metaverse he s a warrior prince. Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus that s striking down hackers everywhere, he races along the neon-lit streets on a search-and-destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse. Snow Crash is a mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous you ll recognize it immediately.

Brilliantly realized Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow. "New York Times Book Review"
