Gold farming in MMPORG, and game building, veterans and draft-dodgers, a British writer of fantasy with exquisitely hand-crafted languages and cultures and also an American fantasist of the most prolific stripe, Seattle hipsters and Iowan wind farmers, private jets and slow boats from China: everyth...

After over 200 pages I was still not into it. He's trying to make what is happening much more interesting than it is and it's not working. Doesn't matter how you try to pimp it out to the reader the fact remains that there's someone holding data hostage for $73 and I could not care less.

"Reamde" is more than 34 hours long and I still regretted reaching the end. Malcolm Hillgartner delivers a masterful performance that kept me engaged thro ughout. The opening chapter of REAMDE reads like something from John Irving or Richard Russo. It establishes Richard Forthrast, online war game...

This was a thriller with almost no real sci-fi component (not that there's anything wrong with that). That said, I didn't love this book; the narrative was epic in scope, but not quite coherent enough to get me to believe it. Still, it's a fun read -- if you're a fan of Stephenson's writing style, w...

Enjoyable. Long. Somewhat derivative of some other works that explore the relationship between the real world and a game / virtual world, e.g. Lev Grossman's Codex. If you liked Cryptonomicon, I think you'll enjoy this, although to my mind Cryptonomicon is better. I found this much more accessible t...

Pues completamente en el estilo de Stephenson. Es muy largo y me parece que tiene cosas que son un poco de relleno y no tan importantes eso si, la acción en este libro es muy buena y abundante. Desde como por un cuarto del libro comienza y no para hasta el epílogo. Me gusto pero el final me pareció ...

Because I thought this was going to be a science fiction novel like Snow Crash (which I loved) I was all set to enter the virtual world of video games. Surprise Valz -- it's an action adventure with a whole slew of delightful protagonists. And to all those characters I say, the more the merrier! And...

Excellent book. Has it all. Terrorists, gamers and spies. Massive book as well at just over 1000 pages.

I thought I had drunk the Stephenson kool-aid years ago, but apparently not. While he's generally idea driven and heavy on info dumps, this is constructed to be character driven and heavy on info dumps. Character driven really doesn't play to his strengths as his characters tend to feel flat. Going ...
