Yeah, the tempo is really fast.
This would make a great movie.

well, snow crash is not even in the game genre as hitchhikers guide.

Personally (and obviously, i guess), i think it's a brilliant book. when you're done with it, read Zodiac (it's not cyberpunk but it's funny) and Cryptonomicon (very long, but worth it).

The Diamond Age is another good one (think science fiction meets fairy tales).

So, should we re-name grapples "poons"?...hehe

Don't forget to check out Willam Gibson's stuff if you like cyberpunk.

PHAT, this is all about the second sin ending.. Lemme tell ya, it's ALOT longer then most people think, what with all the scripted scenes and the virtual city thing..
But perhaps I've said too much already.

for more lighthearted and silly, try Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency. It's pretty good.

Well, the second Dirk Gently book has a lot to do with Norse gods.
the first one has a lot to do with ghosts and transdimensional beings.

ohyeah, and a couch in a hallway.
