The book, a complete mythography in one package, tells nell stories that enable her to grow, to mature, and deal with the increasingly challenging situations she faces
Author neal stephenson (cryptonomicon, the baroque cycle) harnesses the power of storytelling to tell a story about the power of storytelling
As ever with stephenson, this is far more than science fiction, though he delights in the extrapolation and potential of technologies - this is myth employed as jung saw it, as revelation, as route to self-actualisation and ultimately, as princess nell leads her unstoppable army into a shanghai in flames, of paradigm cultural change
The diamond age is also a meaty, multi-layered read with startling imagery, lucid characterisation and stephenson's trademark wryly-observed wit
