Description


In Snow Crash, Neal Stephenson took science fiction to dazzling new levels. Now, in The Diamond Age, he delivers another stunning tale. Set in twenty-first-century Shanghai, it is the story of what happens when a state-of-the-art interactive device falls into the hands of a street urchin named Nell. Her life -- and the entire future of humanity -- is about to be decoded and reprogrammed.... "NEAL STEPHENSON IS THE QUENTIN TARANTINO OF POSTCYBERPUNK SCIENCE FICTION....HAVING FIGURED OUT HOW TO ENTERTAIN THE HELL OUT OF A MASS AUDIENCE, STEPHENSON HAS LIKEWISE UPPED THE FORM'S ANTE WITH RAMBUNCTIOUS GLEE." -- Village Voice "SNOW CRASH DREW ITS MANIC ENERGY FROM THE CYBERPUNKISH CONCEIT THAT ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IN VIRTUAL REALITY; IN THE DIAMOND AGE THE WONDERS OF CYBERSPACE PALE BEFORE THE EVEN MORE DAZZLING POWERS OF NANOTECHNOLOGY." -- New York Times Book Review "THE DIAMOND AGE ESTABLISHES NEAL STEPHENSON AS A POWERFUL VOICE FOR THE CYBER AGE...AT ONCE WHIMSICAL, SATIRICAL, AND CAUTIONARY." -- USA Today "STEPHENSON'S WORLD-BUILDING SKILLS ARE EXTRAORDINARY....THE DIAMOND AGE SHOULD CEMENT STEPHENSON'S REPUTATION AS ONE OF THE BRIGHTEST AND WITTIEST YOUNG AUTHORS OF AMERICAN SCIENCE FICTION." -- San Diego Union-Tribune.
