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.
