    Painfully slow in the middle

    The book starts of well, but becomes slow in the middle. The climax seems to go on forever. A good edit would have made this a great read.

    Would make a great summer movie ...

    I greatly enjoyed the storyline and idea of this book but I found the characters too cookie cutter, too romanticised. I can easily imagine this as an entertaining adventure movie, and if you accept it in that vein, then its worth a read.

    Reamde

    Far too many convenient occurrences to make a good story. I found myself constantly rolling my eyes at how everything happened exactly when it needed to. The T'Rain portions of the book were the only entertaining parts for me.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    This was the first Neal Stephenson book I read and I was impressed. I'd label it as a hacker-spy thriller. The book is quite long but there is enough comedy, action and plot twists to get you through the 1000+ pages with ease. That being said, Stephenson does dwell on minute details (aka goes off on tangents) that usually have something to do with the plot or characters, but add little to overall story. I've read that Stephenson majored in Geography in University, which really shows in this novel; his descriptions of the places the characters find themselves in are a treat to read.
