Livre sympa qui part un peu dans tous les sens. Difficile à suivre par moment comment les personnages se rencontrent. Mais lecture sympa dans son ensemble.

A lancé le nom d'avatar pour nos représentations sur le web.

Théorie d'un virus qui nous rend susceptible d'être influencés par des commandes linguistiques.

Too quick of an ending after so many detailed "intermediary" stories / characters. Otherwise worth reading for amateurs of WWII and modern crypto beginnings

Encore un excellent livre de Neal Stephenson, qui comporte en plus sa propre suite.

Comme d’habitude, Neal Stephenson utilise le prétexte de l’histoire pour faire tourner des idées futuristes, et ancrer la science dans le quotidien. Le résultat est un très bon roman de science-fiction, avec des intrigues aussi étayées que savoureuses. Les personnages sont agréables, quoiqu’un peu « logiques », comme souvent chez cet auteur.

Ce livre est superbe, il n’y a pas grand chose d’autre à dire : si vous aimez la hard science-fiction, l’espace, la génétique, et Neal Stephenson, alors foncez les yeux fermés.… (plus d'informations)
