Snow Crash

Neal Stephenson

Bantam Books 1992
A book review by Danny Yee © 1995
Snow Crash is a fast-paced, near-future, cyberpunk thriller. Neither its technology (with cybernetic dogs, portable nuclear-powered gatling guns, and ancient Sumerian neuro-linguistic programming), its politics (a libertarian world where the Mafia deliver pizzas and the Library of Congress has merged with the Central Intelligence Agency to form a public company), or its plot (the principal characters have a superhero-like immunity to being hit when people shoot at them) withstand close inspection. It is, however, a lot of fun, and its biggest virtue is that it doesn't take itself at all seriously.

August 1995
