Granted it's pretty funny, and actually had me laughing out loud in a couple of places. But as a story it's absolute amateurism. All that endless tedious info-dumping about Sumerian mythology with absolutely no attempt to integrate it into the narrative, and then at the end what's it all for? After waiting for about 400 pages to find out what the fuck is going in, it turns out it's nothing more than a sub-Bond villain "use mind control to take over the world" scheme which he's crudely attempted to force into some grand link with computer science and linguistics, all of which is complete nonsense. And after 400 fucking pages of trying to figure out what devious web Stephenson must be weaving that will tie together all this bullshit, it turns out it just descends into a crap cartoon action movie complete with deus ex machina resolution.

On a higher level, the whole book is just a glorified self-congratulatory handjob to all the coders and computer mega-geeks. It's all there in that whole passage where Hiro sits up in Da5id's house and Stephenson waxes lyrical about the mundanity of suburban America and how cool and exciting young hackers like Hiro are. What an edgy, badass tribe the code monkeys of 1993 truly were. Hiro Protagonist is a walking amalgamation of geek fantasy, right down to the samurai swords. He's exactly as lethal, handsome, well connected and heroic in the real world as in the Metaverse, thus rendering the latter completely irrelevant in dramatic terms. He has no weaknesses, he encounters no real setbacks, he can acquire whatever he wants and kill anyone he wants whenever the plot demands it. In a book that pokes satirical fun at every single facet of society going, Stephenson hasn't even got one word of self-deprecation for his champion geeks.

I could go on and on. Neuromancer is an actual piece of literature, and a groundbreaking and supremely stylish one at that. Snow Crash is, by comparison, mere fan service.


well admittedly i did read it as a teenager, so maybe my recollections are shit or maybe my taste is just bad . but i liked the libertarian universe and the fact that the snow crash aligned with a game i was playing at the time that used a similar concept. but thanks for your review, that's what i was after

A surgeon should not operate if he has not gone through the same pathology, astrophysicists should not talk about black-holes and other cosmological phenomena because said person has not experienced it.

why does anyone think that adding chemical substances that are made in an industrial factory and enclosed in small capsules is really a proper way or effective way of treating anything?

there are natural cures for every disease.
natural medicine has been practiced and has worked for thousands of years.
pills are used to control and they are used for money.
and pills are notorious for causing diseases, symptoms which are worse then the original disease or symptom.

studies which support pills are funded by the companies which make money off of pills.

your science is corrupt, full of assumptions, and causes vast limitations.


I won't even answer this, since it's an ancient argument which doesn't really lead anywhere.

its not an argument. its the truth. and you avoid it because it makes your modern studies, and modern practice of science look irrelevant and meaningless.

biggest problem with society?

it was built because of the ego, and it stands on the ego of all conformists.

"nature cant possibly be intelligent, only humans can be intelligent and we can only show intelligence with our 'intelligent' science."

Snow Crash was a lot of fun to read, but nothing more. I enjoyed The Diamond Age much more, though. Did you get around to that one, Jack?

SO TAs I didn't want to make another thread.

But the pharmaceuticals are making Paulino stalk the TA thread scaring the shit out of potentially new members. At least my threads are controversial and full political incorrectness. Everything done on purpose, world is a stage, On the other hand,

this...

Juan Paulino guy, listen man, focus on the positive, forget this chick, and move on with your life. Stop spamming and trolling the fucking forums or i'll publish your internet browser history.

Concerned, TA. (Thanks for clicking.)
