really liked it

This is the book that inspired "The Matrix". I read it after seeing the movie in high school and didn't understand a word. I picked it up a few years later and it hit me hard. It's quite a heavy read, but well written and very interesting. Baudrillard's snide wit and hatred of mankind make it entertaining for the whole family.
