  •  Reamde is a thumping good tale, (7+ / 0-)

    but damn, does he stretch out the climax too long. By a hundred f'ing pages.

    I live under the bridge to the 21st Century.

    •  Interesting that 3 different books about video- (5+ / 0-)

      gaming came out practically on top of each other: Reamde (N Stephenson of course), 2011; Ready Player One (Ernest Cline), 2011 & For the Win (Cory Doctorow), 2010 -- well, two of those are really well-known guys, and the third one may be building...

      They're each really interesting in their own ways, and LOTS of fun to read! Well, For the Win is a little slower going, as it's tackling some heavier themes, but I'm still a BIG C.D. fan!

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...
