5.0 out of 5 stars Don't judge a book by its cover, March 6 2012
I picked this up in spite of the cover and blurb (which are far too Twilight, mooning over the handsome prince for my taste) because it had gotten good reviews on, and I needed something to read on the plane - it was well worth it, there's a solid sci-fi tale in here, with interesting, well-rounded characters, and far less mooning over the charming prince than I would have expected. I'd recommend it highly, this isn't just your kid sister's sci-fi.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but not Stephenson, Sept. 24 2011
This review is from: Reamde: A Novel (Paperback)
This is a decent (if long) page-turner, but lacking in both cool uses of advanced tech and Stephenson's usual long diversions on subjects philosophical/technological/etc, and leaving a rather bog-standard story about terrorists that has a surplus of "just so" coincidences and abandoned story subarcs. Not the author's best work.
