Review of Snow Crash (1992)


Neal Stephenson (writer).

A glib, less credible and less interesting William Gibson novel. Stephenson was clearly more interested in Aleut seamanship and reinterpreting the silly fable of the Tower of Babel than he was in the future, but it’s quick enough, and there are good moments.
