a long time ago snowcrash took me off the planet of the banal and announced we were going to land in a new place, excitement and the innards of the future. the trip has not ended yet. this installment from the mind of the prophet continues to respect the reader and lead us into the perils of the next moment of this digital portal. no excuses, no strangers and no end to the twists and turns of a two track path into the unknown but familiar neighborhood under the binary covers of the black and white boundaries of imagination and the people next door.

This is an excellent thriller by Stephenson, not super scary but with lots of action spanning the globe and a kick-ass female protagonist. Expect computer games and viruses and terrorists and dope smugglers and the Russian mafia, all masterfully woven together in this epic tale. Perfect for a long winter spent reading snuggled under the covers, at 1000 pages you don't have to worry about burning through it too quickly (although there were sections I read far past my bedtime because I couldn't put it down.) Enjoy!

True to form for Stephenson this global romp is almost impossible to put down, even at over 1000 pages. As always, Stephenson combines likable, heroic characters in fascinating situations with a literary flair that distances him from not only other "cyberpunk" novelists, but most fiction writing today. This is peak intrigue served up in healthy, tasty portions. Stephenson at his ever-evolving best.

Product details 1056 pages William Morrow & Company - English 9780062191496 Reviews:
"Review" by , "Reamde is an entertainment, an enormous, giddily complex one. There's no telling what Stephenson might be planning for his next novel, but now's the time to dive into a first-rate intellectual thriller without fear of being overwhelmed by its virtuosity."
"Review" by , "Reamde is...one big, carefully choreographed, jet-set square-dance of mayhem."
"Review" by , "It's hard to sum up a 1,000 page tome in a short review, so if you don't feel like reading this rather long one, I'll boil it down to three words: I loved it."
"Review" by , "After a decade of novels set in 18th century Europe and in alternate universes, Neal Stephenson triumphantly returns as a bestselling author to contemporary America."
"Review" by , "Expertly crafted and often gorgeously written."
"Review" by , "Sometimes when you're reading Neal Stephenson, he doesn't just seem like one of the best novelists writing in English right now; he seems like the only one."
"Review" by , "Stephenson, best-known for his genre-hopping novels, tackles tech-terrorism in Reamde."
"Review" by , "Reamde combines meticulous observation of the stranger socioeconomic effects wrought by technology with rousing fusillades of adventure."
"Review" by , "In less masterful hands, this pile-up of implausible coincidences, madcap romance, technological mayhem and nail-biting suspense might have been a train wreck, but Stephenson pulls it off. Reamde has one of the most satisfyingly over-the-top endings of anything I've read in years. "
"Review" by , "There's an intellectual pill buried deep in Mr. Stephenson's narrative candy, one powerful enough that he deserves to be classified as a major national and international resource."
"Review" by , "[Stephenson] makes reading so much fun it feels like a deadly sin."
"Review" by , "Stephenson...delivers a sprawling thriller that shows him in complete control of his story."
"Review" by , "A story that, despite its gargantuan heft, speeds along like a bullet train....The depth of the story, the attention to detail, the interlocking narratives and fine characterizations mark Reamde as an immersive literary experience."
"Review" by , "Neal Stephenson has guts, a killer story, and — for the first time since Cryptonomicon — a thriller I can thoroughly recommend to any reader....With Reamde we have a very smart page-turner — a global chess game expertly played."
"Review" by , "Nobody else writes like Stephenson"
"Review" by , "Even at a thousand pages, Reamde is sprightly enough to jump between 9 or 10 plot threads without getting tangled up in itself, and, refreshingly, it does so without employing the annoying modern thriller trend of rat-a-tat sprays of two-page chapters."
"Review" by , "[Reamde] is, without a doubt, one of the smartest, fastest-moving, and most consistently enjoyable novels of the year, a book with the rare distinction of being one this reviewer wishes he had written."
"Review" by , "Stephenson somehow makes his crazy setup entirely plausible and tons of fun."
"Review" by , "[A] rip-roaring race through computer hacking and guns, China and North America, virtual reality and terrorism. "
"Review" by , "Stephenson has a once-in-a-generation gift: he makes complex ideas clear, and he makes them funny, heartbreaking, and thrilling."
"Synopsis" by , The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Anathem, Neal Stephenson is continually rocking the literary world with his brazen and brilliant fictional creations — whether he’s reimagining the past (The Baroque Cycle), inventing the future (Snow Crash), or both (Cryptonomicon). With Reamde, this visionary author whose mind-stretching fiction has been enthusiastically compared to the work of Thomas Pynchon, Don DeLillo, Kurt Vonnegut, and David Foster Wallace — not to mention William Gibson and Michael Crichton — once again blazes new ground with a high-stakes thriller that will enthrall his loyal audience, science and science fiction, and espionage fiction fans equally. The breathtaking tale of a wealthy tech entrepreneur caught in the very real crossfire of his own online fantasy war game, Reamde is a new high — and a new world — for the remarkable Neal Stephenson.
