Quick Summary: The book takes place in a dystopian future and follows a group of teens on their adventures through a virtual reality world (you see, there was a theme when I was reading Snow Crash). A gazillionaire dies and leaves his fortune to the person who can complete his crazy VR puzzle involving 80s games and other fun nerd-culture references. The young mighty fat VR-addicted hero takes on a big corporation to win the prize.
To quote the Almanac: “People who live in glass houses should shut the fuck up.”
I’m not crazy about reality, but it’s still the only place to get a decent meal.
No one in the world ever gets what they want and that is beautiful.
