內容簡介


世界上最偉大的駭客在落魄中,
機靈的十五歲滑板快遞拯救了他,
從此搭檔的二人,捲入幽暗的險惡事端。
伊拉克南邊小城埃利都挖掘出的蘇美古物,
暗藏某種讓美國聯邦暗地裡與宗教團體勾結的神秘力量。
「魅他域」與現實世界的刀光劍影,潛伏著毀滅世界的危機。

「潰雪」的出現,暗示著所有瑣碎的線索,將一步步拼湊起一幅完整的陰謀拼圖,迫使駭客與智勇快遞、黑手黨首領、越南軍事專家、香港企業家,不得不開始追查真相,最後展開空前合作,阻止一場屠殺人類心智的腥風血雨。

這是一本橫跨現實與虛擬、蘇美古文明與電腦時代的超激鉅作。作者詭譎複雜的佈局,令人拍案叫絕;透過叛逆、刁鑽的兩個主角,整本小說充滿囂張的活力和痛快的節奏。作者用犀利筆調,諷刺而幽默地描繪出郊區中產心態、軟體工程師文化、僵化官僚、各類型偏見,淋漓快感自始至終貫穿全書,讓人欲罷不能一路奔讀到底,以求一探究竟。

網路虛擬科幻代表作家尼爾.史蒂芬森預示明日危機力作「潰雪」,橫跨了神話、宗教、歷史、文明、神經學、語言學、和電腦世界的界域,將一切元素包含進故事的發展與敘述中,企圖解開人類自遠古至今,真實世界與虛擬世界兩個世界的創世秘密。經由作者縝密的思考與描述,這浩大工程,沒有遺漏或輕忽任一環節,不但故事說來令人信服,同時也展現作者對歷史的鍾情與深刻研究,在在成為他成就一個偉大故事的動力。

One of Time’s 100 best English-language novels • A mind-altering romp through a future America so bizarre, so outrageous—you’ll recognize it immediately

Only once in a great while does a writer come along who defies comparison—a writer so original he redefines the way we look at the world. Neal Stephenson is such a writer and Snow Crash is such a novel, weaving virtual reality, Sumerian myth, and just about everything in between with a cool, hip cybersensibility to bring us the gigathriller of the information age.

In reality, Hiro Protagonist delivers pizza for Uncle Enzo’s CosoNostra Pizza Inc., but in the Metaverse he’s a warrior prince. Plunging headlong into the enigma of a new computer virus that’s striking down hackers everywhere, he races along the neon-lit streets on a search-and-destroy mission for the shadowy virtual villain threatening to bring about infocalypse.

Praise for Snow Crash

“[Snow Crash is] a cross between Neuromancer and Thomas Pynchon’s Vineland. This is no mere hyperbole.”—The San Francisco Bay Guardian

“Fast-forward free-style mall mythology for the twenty-first century.”—William Gibson

“Brilliantly realized . . . Stephenson turns out to be an engaging guide to an onrushing tomorrow.”—The New York Times Book Review
