Really interesting book, like every by Stephenson
loved it, I was enthralled for many hours listening to the Audio version of this book while driving. Full of interesting tech and predictions of an enchanting and scary future.
At first I found the readers voice to be an odd match with the subject matter, but it soon became evident the Jennifer was a perfect match for this book.
