In the future the only relief from the sea of logos is the computer-generated universe of virtual reality. Now a strange computer virus, called Snow Crash, is striking down hackers, leaving an unlikely young man as humankind's last hope.

    Ready Player One de Ernest Cline (davesmind, jbgryphon, fulner)
    davesmind: Although Snow Crash is a classic of cyberpunk, I think Ready Player One has a more captivating story - especially if you played video games in the 80's
    jbgryphon: RPO's OASIS owes it's existence as much to Neil Stephenson's Metaverse as to the miriad of geek universes that are included in it.
    fulner: Ready player one is what Snow crash should have been. A story focused primarily on the inter-personal-relationships of others "online" in a futuristic version of the internet in which we live in a 3-D world as the real world around us crashes and burns. The biggest difference is Ready Player One Doesn't Suck. Still somewhat heretical, but its heresy can be easily dismissed on that the protagonist is an atheist.… (més)

    Noisy: Anarchy viewed from both sides of the fence. 'Snow Crash' offers the capitalist view and 'The Star Fraction' offers the socialist counterpart.

    Omnitopia Dawn de Diane Duane (pammab)
    pammab: To explore the possibilities of virtual reality in the near future. Duane's is much more traditional and pro-corporate fantasy; Stephenson's is more humor-based anti-corporate cyberpunk.

Weird (but fun) cyberpunk story. The world that Stephenson built & the characters within were all interesting. The plot itself was enjoyable, & I enjoyed the connections with linguistics & religion. I personally enjoyed the humor in this book, but I feel it wouldn't work for everyone. There were times where the prose was written such that I had some difficulties telling what was happening. However, I overall enjoyed this book ( )

I can see why people like it. An engaging pro-hacker set in an interesting world. Although it wraps up rather suddenly. ( )

Not for all tastes. Dystopian cyberspace novel with ancient myths, and the two main characters are a hacker with a samurai-like avatar and a skateboarding delivery girl. Very strange but sort of fun. Hard to finish it. ( )

I probably would have rated this book higher if I hadn't read [b: Vellum: The Book of All Hours|490966|Vellum (The Book of All Hours, #1)|Hal Duncan|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1388280313s/490966.jpg|1214913] first, which deals with a lot of the same ideas in a very different way. They're both awesome books, though. ( )

I've heard that Snow Crash is better enjoyed with a knowledge of other Sci-Fi books, since it's a parody. I still found it enjoyable though, even with my non-existing experience with the genre.
The plot is a stretch, it doesn't really make any sense. The author attempts to draw parallels from computers and technology with ancient sumerian theology, but to me it sounded forced, and yes, I get that viruses are connected with blah blah blah in this and that way but please do get back to the sword fights and skateboarding.
The two main characters are a katana wielding guy with dreadlocks--he also happens to be a hacker and helps the mafia deliver pizzas. The other is Y.T., a fifteen year old skater punk, serving as a Kourier. These two make for an interesting duo.
I think it makes up for its incomprehensible plot by being bizarre, surreal, and kitsch. It uses a lot of slang, some of which I had to search up.
The book was published in 1992, which is astounding because much of its content refers to modern concepts. In 1992, computers were bulky, clunky, dumb yellow-white boxes with very limited computing power. Of course, some of its predictions are awkward, but such is to be expected for a book produced three decades ago. It made up the terms "metaverse" and "avatar," and I've heard influenced a lot of important people, like the creators of Google Earth.
The ending wasn't bad. It was abrupt and unexpected. There's no epilogue, we don't get to see the aftermath, it just slides into the author's acknowledgements and about page. ( )

Hiro Protagonist (who has chosen his own name, of course) turns out to be entertaining company, and Mr. Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow that is as farcical as it is horrific.
 
Stephenson has not stepped, he has vaulted onto the literary stage with this novel.

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