The #1 New York Times bestselling author of Seveneves, Anathem, Reamde, and Cryptonomicon returns with a wildly inventive and entertaining science fiction thriller--Paradise Lost by way of Philip K. Dick--that unfolds in the near future, in parallel worlds. In his youth, Richard "Dodge" Forthrast founded Corporation 9592, a gaming company that made him a multibillionaire. Now in his middle years, Dodge appreciates his comfortable, unencumbered life, managing his myriad business interests, and spending time with his beloved niece Zula and her young daughter, Sophia. One beautiful autumn day, while he undergoes a routine medical procedure, something goes irrevocably wrong. Dodge is pronounced brain dead and put on life support, leaving his stunned family and close friends with difficult decisions. Long ago, when a much younger Dodge drew up his will, he directed that his body be given to a cryonics company now owned by enigmatic tech entrepreneur Elmo Shepherd. Legally bound to follow the directive despite their misgivings, Dodge's family has his brain scanned and its data structures uploaded and stored in the cloud, until it can eventually be revived. In the coming years, technology allows Dodge's brain to be turned back on. It is an achievement that is nothing less than the disruption of death itself. An eternal afterlife--the Bitworld--is created, in which humans continue to exist as digital souls. But this brave new immortal world is not the Utopia it might first seem . . . Fall, or Dodge in Hell is pure, unadulterated fun: a grand drama of analog and digital, man and machine, angels and demons, gods and followers, the finite and the eternal. In this exhilarating epic, Neal Stephenson raises profound existential questions and touches on the revolutionary breakthroughs that are transforming our future. Combining the technological, philosophical, and spiritual in one grand myth, he delivers a mind-blowing speculative literary saga for the modern age.… (mehr)

    D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths von Ingri d'Aulaire (themulhern)
    themulhern: Remarkable coincidence: the day after I returned D'Aulaire's "Norse Gods and Giants" to the library, after having checked it out on a whim and found myself remembering how much I loved it as a child I started listening to the audio version of "Fall". And less than half an hour into the book there is an extraordinary discussion about the D'Aulaire's two books of myths, Greek and Norse, with a focus on the Norse, which I always thought was by far the better. How many literate people of my or Stephenson's age didn't fall in love with that extraordinary book?… (mehr)

    Diamond Age. Die Grenzwelt. von Neal Stephenson (g33kgrrl)
    g33kgrrl: Normally I find it silly to recommend books by the same author, but The Diamond Age is a deep cut by now. While completely different stories, I find the parallel of the virtual quest/actual reality intriguing.

Ugh, I hate not giving five stars to Stephenson. He's one of my favorite authors, but this book only starts out very well, drags you into the story on both worlds, Meatspace and Bitworld.

But the end is not great. Not great at all.

Even if we finally figure out a bit more about Enoch Root. ( )
