Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparisonâa writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is 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.
In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzoâs CosoNostra Pizza Inc., but in the Metaverse heâs a warrior prince. Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus thatâs striking down hackers everywhere, he races along the neon-lit streets on a search-and-destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse.
