i suspect a few might question the relevance of this post... but WG undoubtedly enjoys his fair share of influence on "hacker culture" therefore, here goes anyway:
I was wondering if anyone read the book and what you think of it. I just got it yesterday. Well, obviously I'm not done yet, but I gotta say that if you enjoy WG's tight prose you'll be very happy... I enjoy reading it completly... I haven't read anyone who has as much control over the writting style as him. The book is plays itself out in the present so the gun-ho plots of his previous works is done w/(this for those who are turned off by the Sci-Fi).
If anyone's interested I'll post a breif review when I'm finish w/ the book, but first please let me know your immpressins, if you have any.
