not like you're directly quoting someone who said the [n word] in real life for literary significance, so I'm wondering if some phrases were only added to get a reaction out of readers. Y.T.'s character is a bit over the top
I can't argue against that the book is super influential in computing, etc., because it is, but I'm not sure if I want to re-read it anymore. I think it's okay to retire an old favorite book.
18 year old Tyrel and 31 year old Tyrel have different opinions on Snow Crash now. The Plot is still amazing, one of my favorite books, but damn, some of the writing hasn't aged that well, so I'm not sure how I want to feel about it these days.
Previous times reading/listening to it, I never realized how often words like "[n word]", "retarded", etc. etc. pop up. It was written in 1992 which I guess "retarded" was still one of those words you tossed around, but it's fiction so it's
