it was ok
bookshelves: novel
Read in January, 2007

There is no such thing as a professional rabble-rouser--how many times have radicals and anarchists had to defend themselves against the absurd charge that someone pays them to protest--but he's the main character in one of Stephenson's first books. I don't know, the mystery is pretty good--who's poisoning Boston's bay-- and the wacky protests and direct actions are fun.... The main character was just a little too out there--I mean, who fills their house with nitrous?

Anyway, the book has this going for it: Satanists with a heavy metal band who party on a toxic island of junk in the bay.
