Intro to Lit Study--EL 150
Stephenson, The Diamond Age
I really, really would love this book better if I understood it. Nevertheless, I think I got the basic groundwork for what is happening. In this whole portion, so many characters and terms in this science fiction make this choice the most difficult to read. Just imagine the world like the one in the book. The end of Democracy as we know it, machines in some point are extremely more advanced than humans, and deliquent loans are answered by a trip to a camp and possible execution. The world is changing, but do you want the world as strange and dangerous as Diamond Age? (I'm not making this up) There is a plan implementing to have a 'credit' system without using card by using fingerprints. Trust me when I say the future is closer than you think.
