Neal Stephenson defies comparison - a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. And Snow Crash is just such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age.

Within the computer field, there are classical books I still find impressive, like Snow Crash. That was really ten years ahead of its time. It kind of anticipated what’s going to happen, and I find that really interesting.
