  "In one of the most perceivable dystopian futures that I can imagine, Hiro is everything.

Honestly, I'm not looking for the money. I am registering an amount because your own review of this book captures the fine points so well. Neal Stevenson's writing in Snow Crash is so visceral and complex, that you have no choice but to become immersed in the world he creates. It fires your brain for weeks after the read, if not longer. It takes time to wrap one's head around his world and language, and his execution is flawless.

This book is at pleat as important as Stranger in a Strange Land.

10/10 Worth the read"
