Snow Crash

This book has been nominated to the British Science fiction awards and covers genres like history, anthropology, religion, archaeology, computer, science, politics, cryptography and more. It follows a story of the protagonist that falls into the influence of a pseudo-narcotic that makes the user fall into some kind of metaverse while they are still feeling everything on the physical aspect. While the story may be set in a virtual world or fictional world, some aspects may be real, or can become real, and that is the core of the story.

The protagonist is set to look for answers to his question about what really is Snow Crash and its mystery, only to find out that the distribution and the effects of the narcotic is somewhat designed by a anarcho-capitalist society to bring down some major systems like financial, to paralyze anything and everything. And since the protagonist is a hacker, he sets on a mission to reveal the secrets of Snow Crash, which is in fact a computer virus that infects any system, and to the sides, also affects that hackers and any machines that comes into contact with, paralyzing their ability to fight back to the effects of the narcotic.

The intensity of this book has prompted critical readers to have and give nominations about this book to prestigious awarding bodies that cover the genre of the book. And since it is mostly set in the science fiction world, many sci-fi fanatics have come to patronize the book and see to it that the book is all worth it. Some say that this book has spawned some similar type stories that have made it to the movies, but fans weren’t convinced that what the alleged movie was an indirect reference to the book by Neal Stephenson.

Mother Earth Mother Board

Is another book by the critically acclaimed Neal Stephenson that follows a story of a hacker tourist that ventures around cyberspace and by taking into account and documenting the laying of the world’s longest wire. The hacker does this by making contact like the cable nomads, ex-telegraphers of Cornwall and any other people that may be linked with this feat that is laid on earth.

This book directly portrays the common life that people have that often times stay long in cyberspace but do not understand completely what they are using in the first place. The question to what moves around the earth, is it information or we as the people are moving over it, and this is the basis of the book as to which the plot goes around. In most part of the story, people are now wondering as to how they can catch up with the information flow, all because in the olden days, information can just stop from time to time, and some information that are really needed by some people never make it on time.

The protagonist however is lightly revealing light over the truth, even then the book is set in a sci-fi universe. There is some science to what this book tells as we in the current time is living in the era where technology is part of the everyday life.
