Review: The Diamond Age by Neil Stephenson

Stephenson explores a future where basic needs are met for everyone and ideologies create enclaves and nations of like-minded individuals for their own protection and betterment. This world is populated with a variety of characters, but the story focuses mostly on those who are affected by the creation of a special book, developed for a wealthy man’s granddaughter, to be used to foster subversion and independent thought. While the book has several interesting ideas, the writing felt flat, along with most of the characters. Also, it has a distinctly (and not entirely pleasant) Western tone in its portrayal of the new Victorians and the second Chinese Cultural Revolution.
