Poop Man Bob

Neal Stephenson

Recommended Posts

Although I've only read Snow Crash and The Diamond Age , both fucking blew me away. The detail that Stephenson enters into is amazing ... I wholeheartedly recommend either of these books to anyone looking for a good read. They are neither short nor an easy read, but the time you invest in reading is well worth how you feel when you finish.

 

Personally, I enjoyed The Diamond Age more than Snow Crash . It seemed as though his writing had matured a great deal, resulting in a thoroughly engrossing plot. One of the quotes on the back of the book says it best - "People who plow through these mind-bogglers will walk around slack-jawed for days and reemerge with a radically redefined sense of reality."

 

Go read!

i tried to get a friend to read it... they still have my copy of it.. along with a copy of neuromancer...

 

 

youre speaking to the long converted.

 

 

also if youre interested in.. gibson, sterling or stephensons ideas on design, economics, computers and society... there are papers you can find on the net... and published.. which.. can be pretty interesting.

 

 

wired released an article recently on gibsonsn views of japan and his reflections from his past writting to his current writting on the future of tech.. and such.
