Review: Snow Crash #Robot #Scifi

Snow CrashSnow Crash by Neal Stephenson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Very forward thinking for an early 90’s book, includes VR, AR, Seasteading and NLP. Kinda foresaw Wikipedia via the librarian.
Was overly violent but I guess that is part of the dystopic nature of this future projection.
Also it foresaw some things which may yet come to pass like micropolities, and language based mind viruses.

It didn’t have any memorable robots, though there was a type of cyborg dog that was nuclear powered and could break the sound barrier in terms of speed. All the humans seemed fairly natural, with most of the augmentation being wearable.
