Stephenson excels in marrying geekspeak with riotous action *
A cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon's Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole * San Francisco Bay Guardian *
Brilliantly realized. Stephenson [is] an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow * The New York Times *
A fantastic, slam-bang-overdrive, supersurrealistic, comic-spooky whirl through a tomorrow that is already happening. Stephenson is intelligent, perceptive, hip * Timothy Leary *
Like a Pynchon novel with the brakes removed * Washington Post *
