Fall or, Dodge in Hell


Just finished reading this book by Neal Stephenson and thoroughly enjoyed it. Its tag is "what if we could live forever, what if we did?" and is about a virtual digital heaven (my words).
It has also introduced me to the connectome and other ideas and technology I didn't know existed.

Re: Fall or, Dodge in Hell


That sounds like my kind of book! I read through the introduction on Amazon and it does sound as if Dodge sort of gets a bit more than he bargained for, but then again, once one is dead it kind of takes away one's decision making abilities doesn't it?!  Wink

As soon as things settle down a bit, I think I'll go for it!

Hey Snowy, did you "take" your name from one of Neal Stephenson's books (Snow Crash)?

I just found it interesting that you liked and recommended one of his books until I read through a few of his other publications and thought it a casual coincidence.

No...I know...you went four-wheeling in the wintertime and well, the rest is history...or not...just having a poke.

Best to you!

It is totally from the book. I put it as one word and the book is two words. No quad driving in snow here.

I believe it was his first book and may not be the best written SciFi book but I love the concept of code/computer virus/bio virus/religion/drug all designed to crash the human brain, called... Snow (as in un-tuned TV) Crash (what computers do).
The deliverator driven by Hiro Protagonist is good too. Even if the character name is a little hmmm.
