Snow CrashPosted: September 30, 2011
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This had some amazing ideas about language that tied into ancient history (Sumerians!), most of which were presented in the middle third of the book. Unfortunately, it didn’t really add up to much in the end. The whole story resolved in a fairly standard action-oriented way, unlike William Gibson’s Neuromancer, to which Snow Crash is often compared.
