The Diamond Age - Neal Stephenson 1.5 stars

I was bored beyond any hope of deriving pleasure or even interest in this story. He is very heavy of his world-building, with copious and lenghthy descriptions of technology and the neoVictorian culture, but it is all too clearly a theme book, everything wrapped around his premise about this future society and everything plays to that, not to a story.

Also, toward the end, it feels as if he started a new plot almost, which is given no concrete conclusion.
