Reamde

Neal Stephenson
“Boys want to know two things: who’s in charge, and what are the rules.” –some guy, Reamde

THE RULES:
If you are a man, you are either a manchild, a professional murderer, an Idaho isolationist or Hungarian. (Note: if you are Hungarian, extra man points may be obtained by sincere attempts to murder people.)

If you are a woman, you are a strong character and may possibly have an inner life. Congratulations! You also get to be handcuffed to a toilet for about the whole novel.

Also: guns. Guns guns guns. There was something about an MMPORG which was getting kind of interesting but OMG GUNS GUNS GUNS.

  1. Haven’t read it yet but I imagine you’ve left out some seriously lyrical waxing about the free market.
