    Ready Player One por Ernest Cline (davesmind, jbgryphon, fulner)
    davesmind: Although Snow Crash is a classic of cyberpunk, I think Ready Player One has a more captivating story - especially if you played video games in the 80's
    jbgryphon: RPO's OASIS owes it's existence as much to Neil Stephenson's Metaverse as to the miriad of geek universes that are included in it.
    fulner: Ready player one is what Snow crash should have been. A story focused primarily on the inter-personal-relationships of others "online" in a futuristic version of the internet in which we live in a 3-D world as the real world around us crashes and burns. The biggest difference is Ready Player One Doesn't Suck. Still somewhat heretical, but its heresy can be easily dismissed on that the protagonist is an atheist.… (mais)

Starts off meh but gets really nice afterwards ( )

Ludicrous premise, absurd plot, but prescient in some striking ways (although I suppose if your novel has 1000 ideas, some of them are bound to be right). Glad to have read it, but not the SF heavyweight I expected. ( )

This book got my nerd on a lot less than I was expecting, but I enjoyed the hell out of it. I think that in 1992, when this book was published, it was probably a lot more impressive on the technical, internet side. The fact that a lot of the ideas in the story are not that impressive nowadays is all the more impressive. Also, Stephenson has a kind of humor that isn't super-obvious until you're already in the middle of the joke. Finally, the union of cyber, punk, history, linguistics, pop culture, etc. was ultimately a bit much for my taste, but I'll definitely be reading more of Neal Stephenson. ( )

Pretty great when I read it many years ago. ( )

This book is set in a future world different to, but not indistinguishable from, our own. Huge swathes of society have become commercialised as for-profit organisations, many owned by openly criminal gangs, with the government acting more as an (ineffective) cross between an evil corporation and a secret society. Identitarianism has move on apace resulting in almost everyone living in some community enclave focused on their ethnicity, class status or other aspect of who they are. The internet has become a giant virtual reality representation of the world with many people living their lives online.

Into this world comes a computer virus, Snow Crash, that not only destroys the computer host it arrives at, but enslaves the user creating a sort-of zombie army.

The story revolves around plucky heroes initially trying to grab some personal advantage from the virus’ impact, but later working to defeat the masterminds trying to enslave the planet.

This is a book chock full of ideas and predictions that takes a hard look at impacts and consequences, good and bad. Stephenson has a knack for seeing beyond what a technology can do into what it means when that technology has become a ubiquitous part of everyday life. Even though it is 30 years old, this book has a lot to say and show us about how the technologies we rely on today are affecting how society works and where that could lead.

The book does not have the sophistication of Stephenson’s later work and relies too much on crash-bang action, but is nevertheless an important work in the science fiction field, and a good read as well. ( )

Hiro Protagonist (who has chosen his own name, of course) turns out to be entertaining company, and Mr. Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow that is as farcical as it is horrific.
 
Stephenson has not stepped, he has vaulted onto the literary stage with this novel.

A cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon's Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole.
