Snow Crash

by Neal Stephenson

Snow Crash starts out with a pizza delivery and goes downhill from there. I mean, it's a good book--a complete world where America has been fragmented by corporations and the real world coexists with a cybernetic world known as the Metaverse. The story--wherein pizza driver and computer hacker Hiro Protagonist and a fifteen year old skateboard courier named Y.T. face the Mafia, an Aleutian assassin, the mystery of organized religion, and a plot to release an ancient virus upon humanity--is fascinating. But at the end, I was wishing that Hiro could have delivered another pizza. It was way cool. Brainless, but way cool. Still, this book is definitely worth your while to peruse and enjoy. It's the next best thing to a real Metaverse.
