Enter the Metaverse - cyberspace home to avatars and software daemons, where anything and just about everything goes. Newly available on the Street - the Metaverse's main drag - is Snow Crash, a cyberdrug. Trouble is Snow Crash is also a computer virus - and something more. Because once taken it infects the person behind the avatar. Snow Crash bleeds into reality. Which is really bad news for Hiro - freelance hacker and the Metaverse's best swordfighter (he wrote the code) - and Y.T. - skateboard kourier, street imp and mouthy teenage girl - because reality was shitty enough before someone started messing with it ...Exploring linguistics, religion, computer science, politics, philosophy, cryptography and the future of pizza delivery, "Snow Crash" is a riveting, brake-neck adventure into the fast-approaching future.Hide synopsis

You simply must like an author who names his hero 'Hiro'...that's 'Hiro Protagonist' to be precise, just in case you were wondering who to pull for. The premise, the virtual world, the action, the Mafia as a major corporation and the use of Reason are all reasons you simply must read this book. It's ...
This book is the beginning and the send for the future of Virtual Worlds. This is where the inspiration comes from.
You simply MUST read this book. And then you'll be back. I have personally purchased this book at least 6 times as I've lost/loaned copies over the years.
