Review:

Decades into the future, near the ancient city of Shanghai, a brilliant nanotechnologist named John Percival Hackworth has broken the rigorous moral code of his tribe, the powerful neo-Victorians, by making an illicit copy of a state-of-the-art interactive device called "A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer". Seattle Weekly called Stephenson's Snow Crash "The most influential book since ... Neuromancer."

Review:

" İStephenson¨ has gotten even better. The Diamond Age Envisions the next century as brilliantly as snow crash did the day after tomorrow."
-"Newsweek"
" İStephenson is¨ the hottest science fiction writer in America...Snow Crash is without question the biggest SF novel of the 1990s. Neal's SF novel, The Diamond Age, promises more of the same. Together, they represent a new era in science fiction. People who plow through these mind-bogglers will walk around slack-jawed for days and reemerge with a radically redefined sense of reality."
-"Details"
" Neal Stephenson is the Quentin Tarantino of postcyberpunk science fiction....Having figured out how to entertain the hell out of a mass audience, Stephenson has likewise upped the form's ante with rambunctious glee."
-"The Village Voice"
" Snow Crash drew its manic energy from the cyberpunkish conceit that anything is possible in virtual reality; in The Diamond Age the wonders of cyberspace pale before the even more dazzling powers of nanotechnology."
-"The New York Times Book Review"
" Diamond Age establishes Neal Stephenson as a powerful voice for the cyber age....At once whimsical, satirical, and cautionary."
-"USA Today"
" Stephenson's world-building skills are extraordinary.... The Diamond Age should cement Stephenson's reputation as one of the brightest and wittiest young authors of American science fiction."
-"The San Diego Union-Tribune"
Snow Crash
" Stephenson has not stepped, he has vaulted onto the literary stage with this novel."
-"Los Angeles Reader"
" Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the 21stcentury."
-"William Gibson"
Zodiac: An Eco-Thriller
" (Stephenson) captures the nuance and the rhythm of the new world so perfectly that one almost thinks that it already here."
-"The Washington Post"
New York Times bestselling author of Cryptonomicon
