“Stephenson has a once-in-a-generation gift: he makes complex ideas clear, and he makes them funny, heartbreaking, and thrilling.”

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.

Neal Stephenson is the author ofReamde,Anathem, and the three-volume historical epic the Baroque Cycle (Quicksilver,The Confusion, andThe System of the World), as well asCryptonomicon,The Diamond Age,Snow Crash, andZodiac. He lives in Seattle, Washington.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stephenson This is more of a straightforward thriller from Stephenson. Set in the world of MMORPGs

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would make a great summer movie ... I greatly enjoyed the storyline and idea of this book but I found the characters too cookie cutter, too romanticised. I can easily imagine this as an entertaining adventure movie, and if you accept it in that vein, then its worth a read.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Would make a great summer movie ... This was the first Neal Stephenson book I read and I was impressed. I'd label it as a hacker-spy thriller. The book is quite long but there is enough comedy, action and plot twists to get you through the 1000+ pages with ease. That being said, Stephenson does dwell on minute details (aka goes off on tangents) that usually have something to do with the plot or characters, but add little to overall story. I've read that Stephenson majored in Geography in University, which really shows in this novel; his descriptions of the places the characters find themselves in are a treat to read.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Reamde Far too many convenient occurrences to make a good story. I found myself constantly rolling my eyes at how everything happened exactly when it needed to. The T'Rain portions of the book were the only entertaining parts for me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Painfully slow in the middle The book starts of well, but becomes slow in the middle. The climax seems to go on forever. A good edit would have made this a great read.
