Neal Stephenson’s Snow Crash is one of Time’s 100 best English-language novels. It is a mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous, you will recognize it immediately.
Only once in a great while does an author come along who defies comparison—an author so original he redefines the way we look at the world.
Neal Stephenson is such an author, and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cyber-sensibility to bring us the giga thriller of the information age.
