Description

Review “Stephenson has not stepped, he has vaulted onto the literary stage
with this novel.”—Los Angeles Reader“[Snow Crash is] a cross between
Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon’s Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole.”—The San
Francisco Bay Guardian   “Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the
twenty-first century.”—William Gibson   “Brilliantly realized . . . Stephenson
turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow.”—The New York
Times Book Review Read more From the Inside Flap 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. 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. Read more
