Editorial Review - Kirkus - Jane Doe

After terminally cute campus high-jinks (The Big U) and a smug but attention-grabbing eco-thriller (Zodiac), Stephenson leaps into near-future Gibsonian cyberpunk—with predictably mixed results.

So much I don't remember from the first time I read it (in high school). So incredible. I'm really glad I went through it a second time. This is something I rarely do and don't often have time for. It ... Read full review
