Great novel! For those that don't know, this novel inspired Google Earth, the metaverse, and is the origin of terms like "avatar". Very influential book when it comes to computers!

Edit: *popularized the term "avatar", it was coined to refer to on screen representation of characters in Ultima 4 in 1985.
Fantastic book. Highly recommend. And a much quicker, shorter read than the later Stephenson novels and series.

Thank you OP! Was looking for a digital copy of this. I've tried reading his last two novels and didn't get very far but I remember this one being amazing.

Avatar actually predates the book, but it helped popularize the term, at least according to Wikipedia.

I see this book go on sale so often, I assumed it was a recent publication. I didn't realize it was published way back in '92!

Just my $.02...I read it a few years ago, and while I recognize it's significance in predicting virtual reality etc. I didn't think it held up well for modern times, it's anti-capitalist theme was ham fisted and forced and it felt pretty juvenile overall. Add to that the pedophile sex scene... Just wasn't for me

Snow Crash is as good as Cryptonomicon is terrible . . . the only book my best friend and I ever got into a physical altercation over Big Grin


I don't know what it is about that book because he's recommended over a hundred that I liked . . . it's like cilantro I guess.


Snow Crash: the best book they should never make into a movie because they'll mess it up.

They would definitely mess it up as a movie. You know some Hollywood exec who just heard of this from the recent buzz is licking their chops for the rights.
