really liked it
bookshelves: geek, fiction, favorites, sci-fi
Recommended for: anyone who likes sci-fi

A really interesting novel that takes place in the future in a world where some people live in the metaverse (aka digital universe/internet) more than the real world. I don't remember it so well now but I do remember there being some really interesting tie-ins to ancient sumarian computers.

That plus any book with a protagonist named Hiro Protagonist who wields badass japanese swords is just badass.

Note: the MetaVerse is current being built now here: http://secondlife.com
