Juvenile nerd power fantasy in a nutshellI m a big fanboy of the cyberpunk genre I should have liked this book Instead I can honestly say that hate this book and I also feel bad saying that about someone s work because it s almost like saying you hate someone s baby Maybe it was all the hype I was exposed to before reading itbut I just could not shake a deep feeling of annoyance throughout 90% of this book I found myself rolling my eyes a lot And when I wasn t doing that I was asking myself things like Do people really think this is the Cyberpunk cream of the crop How many pages to goThe first obvious problem was the prose Apparently some people s funny bones get tickled by similes comparing military bases to boils on someone s ass metaphors about valleys and geological cunnilingus and clever wordplay like calling refugees Refus Refuse har har har get it To an elitist douchebag like me it just sounds juvenile and unimaginative Combine all that with clunky corny writing and it s just downright lame I could have also done without the Unix In A Nutshell like explanations of EVERYTHING that drag down the flow of the book even The other big problem was that I did not care about any of the characters Hiro was annoying as hell because it s obvious that he s just a nerd s fantasy of what he wishes he could do YT also got on my nerves She could have disappeared in the middle of the book and I would not have missed her There was nothing likeable or interesting about either of them Ironically among all the cartoony shallow characters the only ones that had some sense of deeper humanity were Ng and Raven Another letdown was that the book s ideas were not that great which did not help the plot I just did not buy the whole neurolinguistic hacking angle as it was used People becoming brainless zombies from watching some binary code on a screen or listening to some Sumerian namshub That is so far removed from the fields of NeuroLinguistic Programming and memetics that this might as well have been a Dungeons Dragons novel I get it Brains are just like computers so they can get viruses binary code 0 s and 1 s blah blah blah Seriously I can suspend disbelief but you can only take a metaphor so far before it starts to look stupid Finally for a book that s supposed to be a belly busting satire the humor in this book is rather lame and nerdy I read people talking about how this book made them howl with laughter but almost everything fell pretty flat for me The only section that got a half assed heh from me was the government policy on the use of toilet paper but by the second page the joke had already become stale All in all I doubt that I will buy another book from this author Judging from what little I ve read in Cryptonomicon and Diamond Age there is little that has changed for me to warrant another look Guide de généalogie en Anjou et Poitou-Charentes-Vendée exposed to before reading itbut I just could not shake a deep feeling of annoyance throughout
