Review: Reamde: A Novel by Neal Stephenson

Engaging thriller. Unexpected twists for fun.

I'm thinking he wanted to comment on terrorism, and also on gold-farming, and ended up bashing them into each other for this novel. That's ok, and made for a gripping read. It's not really scifi, it's more spy novel in the end.

Some of the convergence was forced - there were some hard-to-believe chance encounters to drive everyone together at the end.
