Reviews

"There's a lot going on here--stylistic flourishes, comedic pratfalls, romance and science--but it's handled deftly. Those familiar with Stephenson will recognize his humor and ideas." --Washington Post on The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.
"Neal Stephenson's Fall explores higher consciousness, the internet's future, and virtual worldbuilding in one mind-blowing adventure." --Slate
"A one-of-a-kind synthesis of daring and originality, unafraid to venture into wild and unmapped conceptual territory."--New York Times Book Review on Fall; or, Dodge in Hell
"Stephenson isn't just playing with words, he's playing with ideas, and he isn't joking either. He is sci-fi's great contrarian, and Fall deserves to be rated as one of the great novels of our time, prophetically and philosophically."--Wall Street Journal on Fall; or, Dodge in Hell
"Fall is at once science fiction and fantasy, with quantum computing enabling what amounts to magic, and while Stephenson spins out a pleasingly plausible vision of our near future, he carves out his most comfortable position in the uncertain nexus where that future becomes past and we rewrite our own apocrypha. Vintage Stephenson, which is to say it's like nothing he's ever written." --Wired
"Stephenson devotees with a taste for Tolkienesque fantasy will revel in the author's imaginative world building . . . . Still, there are enough futuristic, envelope-pushing ideas here, especially related to AI and digital consciousness, to keep even nonfans and science buffs intrigued."--Booklist [starred review] on Fall; or, Dodge in Hell
This book is the rare climate thriller that's realistic about political stonewalling in the face of disaster yet unafraid to imagine a possible future where people might actually come together and try to save civilization. The kind of climate-change fiction we all need.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"The novel is classic Stephenson: fiercely intelligent, weird, darkly witty, and boldly speculative. . . . Stephenson has become one of the most revered science fiction writers of his time." --Publishers Weekly
An enthralling and thought-provoking read.--Buzzfeed
