    "The pizza-delivery-man hero also leads another existence in the 'metaverse,' a virtual reality where he must use his hacker skills to fight a deadly new computer virus. Stephenson's first SF novel (he had previously written a couple of environmentalist thrillers), and something of a trendy cult book." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition (1995), p. 332. "The action, and there's a lot of noisy action, is powered by a conspiracy involving a Secret History of the last 4000 years, the Tower of Babel, a cult predating the Babylonians, and mush else ... Knowing and acerbic, a dazzling hyperkinetic dance down the mean streets of cyberspace and back up again into the sunlight." - Paul McAuley, Interzone. Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-1077. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009.
