Good world building. Respectable character building. A ton of highly unlikely scenarios. Action that I wish had drawn me in more but I was having a hard time making it through. With such interesting characters I for some reason or another just didn't care about what was happening to them very much. This book felt like a very long season of "24" with a variation on a typical terrorist abduction plot. I had great hopes for this book since I had heard good things about the author. I assume his other novels are better.

Jenny (Reading Envy) If you don't end up liking Snow Crash, I wouldn't try again.
