    Bad feminist de Roxane Gay (themulhern)
    themulhern: There has been some talk about Stephenson's female characters and some assertion that he is anti-feminist. My feeling is that he is, perhaps, writing his female characters as "bad feminists" in the sense that Roxane Gay uses that term in this collection of essays.… (mais)

3.5/5. Jack Reacher by way of Neal Stephenson. ( )
  autoclave | Oct 4, 2021 |
I like Neal Stephenson's Science Fiction. This book was not Science Fiction. It was something of a thriller with an unlikely cast of characters. It reminded me mostly of Snow Crash but set in the modern day world. Like Snow Crash there are rich billionaires, hackers, trained killers, kidnapped young women, pursuit through strange locations and unlikely alliances. It is a little madcap but really should not have been over 1000 pages long. I liked his previous book Anathem. It was more Science Fiction and had more unusual ideas in it. The most novel idea in this story was a MMRPG built with gold farming in mind and based on geological simulation. That was explained in the first hundred pages and everything after that is just characters running around, meeting, talking and shooting. The characters were well realized with interesting and diverse backgrounds. The plotting and coordination of their movements was well thought out and there were no Deus Ex Mechina thrown in to get the author out of a tight spot. Many events were unlikely but you could see them coming miles down the road. There were no surprises. That could be considered a good thing or a bad thing.

I would not ever read this again. I would read Snow Crash, Diamond Age, Anathem and even Zodiac again. The Baroque Cycle was interesting and fun to read but shared a rambling nature with Reamde. I do not think I would ever re-read that one either. ( )

In Cal Newport’s book, Deep Work, he writes about Neal Stephenson’s work ritual—which is to stay off social media and email. The theory is that it is a distraction from writing books, which is what he needs to spend his time on. Reamde is huge—I guess it proves the point that if you cull all distractions you can produce a huge tome of a thousand pages. I enjoyed this book, but man, I had to dedicate some time to it, which I find hard because I haven’t let go of social media and email. But that is fine. Some reviewers have complained about details, but also having just finished reading Melville’s Moby-Dick as part of a book club at Folio, I say, bring on the details. Those details can capture so much about a specific time and place. If you want a quick thriller, you have plenty of other options, but if you want a thoughtful action thriller that also explains the gaming world, game development, corporations, economics, international intrigue, the Pacific Northwest, world geography—then this is your book. I enjoyed it as a book lover, a game player, a former tech worker, and the wife of a gaming software engineer. I can’t recall a better book that wraps all of these modern details with appropriate character depth. I like that the cast was international—the hero a tech billionaire with a very American past, his niece, an adopted Eritrean orphan with survival skills, her dumb American hacker boyfriend who sets the wheels turning, and all the characters who are pulled in as the plot advances. I could imagine this book being turned into a series on one of the streaming services—there is enough character and plot to go around. Maybe even two seasons.

I found this quote from the book very apropos, "This was part of Corporation 9592'sstrategy; they hired psychologists, invested millions in a project to sabotage movies--yes, the entire medium of cinema--to get their customers/players/addicts into a state of mind where they simply couldn't focus on a two-hour-long chunk of filmed entertainment without alarm bells going off in their medullas telling them that they needed to log on to T'Rain and see what they are missing."

Overall, I recommend this if you like Neal Stephenson, you like thrillers, but are willing to invest the time to read it. ( )

loved it. love neal steaphenson. computers, terrorists, good guys win.

Basically it's a huge chase involving Russian Mafia, hackers, Islamic Jihadists and gamers, spread over China, Malaysia, Canada and the US. Entertaining enough to keep me reading through 1000-odd pages, but the last 80 or so were a dull slog of chases and shoot-outs through scree-slopes and forests, with a fetishistic relish for guns - didn't care for that bit, and all-in-all I prefer his science fiction.

All of Stephenson's fiction has thrilling moments (and as his novels tend to be big, those moments can go on for many, many pages), but this is the first of his books that is nothing but a thriller, one that will sit comfortably on shelves weighed down by, say, the complete works of Robert Ludlum.

"Like Stephenson's most critically acclaimed novel, Cryptonomicon, Reamde combines meticulous observation of the stranger socioeconomic effects wrought by technology with rousing fusillades of adventure."

Sci-fi geeks flock to the master's wildly complex novels -- but his latest, "Reamde," is maddeningly conventional

"Stephenson’s control of these multifarious plotlines is remarkable, as is his evocation of settings as disparate as a 21st-century boomtown in southern China, a remote island in the Philippines, a survivalist compound in Idaho and Wal-Mart."
adicionado por bookfitz | editarThe Washington Post, Elizabeth Hand (Sep 15, 2011)
 
REAMDE, Stephenson's latest novel [...] is a book that represents a new kind of equilibrium in Stephenson's literary canon: a book that is simultaneously as baroque as System of the World and as cleanly and crisply finished as Anathem. It is, in other words, a triumph, all 980 pages of it
