Recensioni

letto nel 2022 - Romanzo fantascientifico dei primi anni 90, che vede la creazione di un mondo virtuale (Metaverso) non l'ho trovato scorrevole e forse visto il tempo passato, un pò scontato (ma non per l'epoca)

Ottimo romanzo! Pur essendo molto ponderoso, il libro alimenta sempre la curiosità e la voglia di continuare a leggere.

Uno scrittore pazzesco che sa TUTTO, che incanta su qualunque argomento: storia, guerra, scienze, affari, religione, sesso, orrori, comicità, natura... Ma quanti cervelli ha???

L'inizio è veloce e promette bene, ma poi col passare del tempo mi inzia a suonare sensazionalista e modaiolo come gli articoli di Wired, E io detesto Wired, il "Donna moderna" della tecnologia.

Se ci aggiungi che è stato scritto quando sembrava che il Giappone doveva dominare il mondo e gli skater erano ancora un fenomeno subculturale abbastanza nuovo, suona anche vecchio e stantio.

Sarà stato anche una pietra miliare del cyberpunk, ma è invecchiato male. Non ce l'ho fatta a finirlo.

PS Ho scoperto poi che Stephenson è effettivamente stato un autore per "Wired"
… (altro)
