did not like it

** spoiler alert ** my god this was horrible. and i mean, HORRIBLE. i read this on recommendation from a friend (and because i loved _Snowcrash_). said friend now owes me big for actually finishing it. it was 500 pages of trying too hard to be political. i'm not real keen on political books anyway, but this was a nightmare to follow. and the ending? it was a joke. i couldn't follow the book well enough to figure out what just happened. so my advice is to read _Snowcrash_ and avoid this one like the plague.
