Jeffrey Bluhm, July 7, 2014 (view all comments by Jeffrey Bluhm)
Can a book that clocks in at just over 1000 pages be a riveting page-turner? In this case, the answer is an emphatic "Yes!" Stephenson intertwines the sagas of several main players, all uniquely characterized, in a novel that spans the globe from the US to China. Drug smuggling, Russian mobsters, charismatic terrorists, virtual reality computer gaming, international spies, computer geeks, money-laundering - they're all there and they all combine to form this highly entertaining novel. Precise detail never detracts from the non-stop pacing of the story, and a book that at first looks to be a massive undertaking all to soon approaches an ending that is disappointing only because it means the end of this superlative accomplishement.

Ok, here I am nearing the end of another Neal Stephenson book, in this case, Reamde, and I am getting that familiar verklempt feeling of sadness that it is almost over - another Neal's wild ride! And no where I ever expected him to take me from Eritrea to Iowa, from Manila to Seattle, from Xiamen to the wilds of the BC border, I have been having so much fun, I never want it to end, not to mention learning all about gold farming and guns. For a second there, I thought it was about me (born in Seattle, raised in Iowa and back in the NW now) Thank you Neal and by the way, I'm thinking the protagonist and his two brothers are you.

Product details pages Atlantic - English 9781848874480 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 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 , "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 , "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...delivers a sprawling thriller that shows him in complete control of his story."
"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."
"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.
