The Diamond Age
Decades into our future, a stone's throw from the ancient city of Shanghai, a brilliant nanotechnologist named John Percival Hackworth has just broken the rigorous moral code of his tribe, the powerful neo-Victorians. He's made an illicit copy of a state-of-the-art interactive device called A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer. Commissioned by an eccentric duke for his grandchild, stolen for Hackworth's own daughter, the Primer's purpose is to educate and raise a girl capable of thinking for herself. It performs its function superbly. Unfortunately for Hackworth, his smuggled copy has fallen into the wrong hands.

One of the best books I've ever read.

I'm still confused by this book. The end finally introduced some action but that only added to my confusion. Is it an allegory? Seriously, I like the author and have read nearly every other book by him. Just never understood or enjoyed this one. Glad to be past it. Read full review
