May Meeting - The Diamond Age

The Diamond Age: Or, A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer by Neal Stephenson

Link to Goodreads page 

A post-cyberpunk novel, it is to some extent a science fiction coming-of-age story, focused on a young girl named Nell, and set in a future world in which nanotechnology affects all aspects of life. The novel deals with themes of education, social class, ethnicity, and the nature of artificial intelligence.

    If anyone is lost, just look for the row of cars parked on the right side of the road and a blue Toyota Highlander towards the front!

    Bummer about the change in venue! I was looking forward to this, but given that it's now a half hour or 45 minute bike ride (in the rain, if you believe tomorrow's forecast), I'll have to bow out. Hope everyone enjoys!

    It's probably time for me to read this again. Can't remember much about it.
