Snow Crash is a great book. I'ld like to recommend Diamond Age as well. Cryptonomicon and following parts need no mention I suppose...


Another nice piece I read around the same time as Snow Crash was William Gibson's "Pattern Recognition". I really liked the idea that somebody has to puke when he/she hears the name of a certain brand xD
