Read in October, 2011

Really enjoyed this one. Pretty long but never really bored me. I got sucked into the story early on and it kept me reading into the night long after I should have stopped. Rarely these days does a book grab me and make me want to read it during every spare moment, but this one did.

There were some typical Stephenson moments where he over-explains things, but I probably only think that because I know a lot about both computers and guns, so some of his info-dump attempts at 'educating the reader' during the course of the story were fairly transparent to me. Great characters, some laughs, lots of intrigue and adventure, and the crazy background of an addictive, immersive on-line multiplayer game. And the ending, while seeming slightly abrupt to me after reading a zillion pages, was satisfying. Highly recommended!
