Review: Snow Crash

User Review  - Corey - Goodreads

After talking to a guy at work who went off about how this was his favorite book ever, read it multiple times, yada yada... I decided to give it a try, since it had been on my reading list for awhile ... Read full review

Review: Snow Crash

User Review  - Paul Rustand - Goodreads

I think this book is highly rated because it was written before the internet (as we know it) existed, and the author's vision of it is pretty remarkable. The book fell flat for me as it seemed like quite a bit more could've been developed with the plot. Good set up, no punchline so to speak. Read full review

User Review  - Gup - Goodreads

I was really excited when I started reading this because the writing & world & hacker aesthetic were immediately so over-the-top and too-silly. Yet somehow the whole Snow Crash plot never got me that ... Read full review

User Review  - Adam Mathews - Goodreads

Stephenson introduces a lot of big ideas that I think he didn't quite fulfill in their conclusions. That's kind of a theme for Stephonson's endings, really; Diamond Age also had a bit of a weak ending, although I liked its ending better than Snow Crash's. Read full review

User Review  - James - Goodreads

Had some strong moments, but alternated between the style of an action movie and that of a wikipedia article. Got less pleasant, and more astonishing in its hack-and-slash approach to historical and linguistic facts about Sumerian society and culture, as it went along. Read full review

Didn't finish this. I didn't like the way the narrative kept switching between tenses and the concepts seemed too clichéd for me. I guess it was just not for me. Read full review

User Review  - Matthew Kimball - Goodreads

This book is super slow not sure why so many people recommended it to me. Hiro is a pizza delivery guy who plays in the metaverse. That sums it up I read a 100 pages and it never picks up. Author uses computer science terminology & symbolism. Read full review

User Review  - Andrew Anderson - Goodreads

If you're 12, then maybe you'll enjoy this book, however mature adults should avoid it at all costs. Stephenson seems to revel in overly bombastic lingo and faux shock, much to the detriment of what could have been a cool story. Read full review

User Review  - Roberto Teixeira - Goodreads

*sigh* I should have liked this book. I know most of my friends did. I love world building and I mostly enjoyed other works by the author. And yet, I can't explain why but reading this felt like work ... Read full review
