Review: Reamde by Neal Stephenson


What a terrific read!  I’d classify it as a techno-thriller rather than sci fi, and it wasn’t at all what I expected from this author but wow! 

It begins with a virus that infects users of a video game and takes so many twists and turns from there you won’t be able to predict where the heck it is going.

The characters are all memorable and I adored Sokolov.  The women are not your sit at home and worry types, let me tell you…  There are a ton of details that make the entire adventure so realistic you can picture yourself traipsing across the world in search of the ‘little shit’ who wrote the virus along with, well, everyone else including the Russian mob, MI6, the CIA and a few civilians who get caught up in the action.
