Guess it's about time I learn about this cyberspace stuff...

So, now that I've read it, more than anything I was impressed by the words, the absolute speed and flash of the language, the energy in the prose. Loved how the future world was created mostly with hints, not with explanation and detail (though I do like it when, say, Neal Stephenson goes granular on everything he's created).

I did, however, feel there was always going to be a twist or double-cross coming -- maybe the whole thing would turn out to be in a meta-matrix. I'd say the ending more or less fulfilled this, though I won't say with what... too much of a spoiler.

Intrigued by the idea of AI as a demon that will destroy us all if unleashed, but not sure what to make of the philosophy of the book as a whole.
