Review: Stephenson’s Fall, Or Dodge In Hell

Fall or Dodge in Hell
Neal Stephenson

I read every Neal Stephenson book as soon as they come out. Some are amazing, some are just ok, but never do I regret the experience.

As is standard with a Neal Stephenson novel, this one is a joyous hodgepodge of adventure, science, and philosophy held together by an improbable but enjoyable plot. The basic outline? Cryogenics gets real and we’re able to replicate the human experience in a digital world. Then shit gets really weird. This starts as a near future science fiction novel and ends as a high fantasy novel. While not entirely successful, its still very enjoyable if, like me, you enjoy Stephenson’s kitchen sink approach to the novel.

Recommended for the enthusiast.
