The future is nano . . .And who could be smaller or more insignificant than poor Little Nell - an orphan girl alone and adrift in a world of Confucian Law, Neo-Victorian values and warring nano-technology?Well, not quite alone. Because Nell has a friend, of sorts. A guide, a teacher, an armed and unarmed combat instructor, a book and a computer: the Young Lady's Illustrated Primer is all these and much much more. It is illicit, magical, dangerous.And it isn't Nell's. It was stolen. And now some very powerful people want to get their hands on this highly desirable object. Nell is about to discover that the world can feel very small indeed . . .

Mehr über den Autor

Neal Stephenson ist in erster Linie Romanautor. Seine spekulativen Werke wurden mit mehreren Preisen ausgezeichnet. Zu seinen bekanntesten Büchern zählen Snow Crash, Diamond Age - Die Grenzwelt, Cryptonomicon, Der Barock-Zyklus und Anathem.


John Percival Hackworth is a nanotech engineer on the rise when he steals a copy of "A Young Lady's Illustrated Primer" for his daughter Fiona. The primer is actually a super computer built with nanotechnology that was designed to educate Lord Finkle-McGraw's daughter and to teach her how to think for herself in the stifling neo-Victorian society. But Hackworth loses the primer before he can give it to Fiona, and now the "book" has fallen into the hands of young Nell, an underprivileged girl whose life is about to change. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Beyond visionary, although a difficult read. 25. Oktober 1999
Von Ein Kunde
The Diamond Age by Neal Stephenson was one of the most insightful an original books I've read in a long time. After a brief absence from the world of science fiction, I picked this book up, almost entirely because of my love for his earlier novel, Snow Crash. In Snow Crash, Stephenson gave us a view of a future not all that far away. The technology of the Diamond Age takes us into the very distant future.
On the Earth of the Diamond Age, mankind has developed and perfected the concept of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is based around the concept of using microscopic computers to allow people to literally make anything possible. Often times, the tricky part of designing an object is making it heavier than air so it won't float away. Matter compilers can create any object with the proper program, and a pair of wooden chopsticks has flashing advertisements running up and down their sides. As backlash to this technological heaven, the elite members of society borrow their culture from the British during the Victorian era. These Victorians -or Vicky's, as some derogatorily refer to them- place value in items that are hand made, and pay exorbitant amounts of money for such items.
This novel varies from many typical science fiction novels, in that its focus is not on the technology or the rich, but rather on a single girl from a dysfunctional family in one of the poorest parts of the world. Nell, comes across one of three copies of the Young Lady's Illustrated Primer, a book of sorts intended to educate a young girl. This book, while itself not a technological marvel, displays a true ingenuity in its content, as any good book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating and Lovely 16. Juli 2000
A great cyberpunk fairy tale. Neal Stephenson is the twisted love child of Frances Hodgson Burnett and William Gibson. In the future, due to advances in nano-technology it is possible to grow just about anything out of constituent atoms. Humanity's basic needs are thus pretty much cared for, but there are still privileged sections of society and not so privileged sections. Someone in one of the privileged sections decides that his children were brought up a bit too mundanely and so commissions a "Young Girl's Primer" for his granddaughter. This interactive, artificially intelligent book falls into the hands of a little girl from a not so privileged section of society and stuff happens. It's cool. Read it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Very rich, but with a disappointing end. 8. Juni 2002
The novel spawns very interesting ideas and invites the reader to a miraculous journey to the landscapes and philosophy of Asia, as well to vague predictions of future society and its changes caused by Nanotechnology. The real greatness of the novel is the combination with a Wizard of Oz-esque story within the story.
Sadly, the story lacks aim in the last chapters, with a quite unsatisfying ending.

4.0 von 5 Sternen a cool book 28. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde
I think a lot of the biggest good and bad points of the book are mentioned in everybody elses reviews, but there is one element that nobody else seems to think is important. Neal manages to creat a wonderafly believable Libertarian Utopia, which is something I've never seen done anywhere else.
Perhaps Utopia is a little strong, the world has a lot of imperfections and couldn't be believable if it didn't, but on the whole it is very much a place where I would like to live.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Absorbing though not quite coherent 29. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
I found the world of this novel very engaging and vivid. The nanotech is a plausible extrapolation of today's fumbling attempts at atom manipulation, and Stephenson draws out some of the fascinating consequences of this technology (some of which are very disturbing, such as nanotechnological parasites, or "nanosites"). The cultural speculations are also rich and interesting: neo-Victorians, neo-Confucians, and a world organized not by nation-states, but by "phyles." I thought the characterization was a little simplistic, but I didn't mind. I did get a bit annoyed by the leaps in logic in the plot. If you try to figure out the connections, you're going to fail. In Stephenson's defense, I guess he is experimenting with connections that operate on the level of the collective unconscious. This is what's going on in the most bizarre parts of the novel, the scenes set among "the Drummers" -- a phyle that lives in undersea caverns, in a continual state of zombie-like sexual ritual, their minds linked by nanosites. The nanosites carry out computations, exchanging information with every fornication, in what Stephenson dubs "the wet net." A creepy idea.

Von J. Sovern
I came to this book after Cryptonomicon which I enjoyed, in fact read it over just a few days as i couldn't put it down. This depite some slow passages, lapses and absurd coincidences in plot, and a certain shallowness. It is however engaging and pulls you in. Diamond Age shares the same qualities and flaws as well as a ridiculously slapdash ending. THe flaws in fact are much more pronounced. The treatment of nanotech is glitzy and shallow, the MTV vision of nanotech. Additionally if you're the kind of reader who can't stand laughable illogic in the story and setting this book is perhaps not for you. However if you can look beyond the occassionally stunted tress the view of the forest is worth it. The ending is both too neat and incomplete and in thus unsastifying, though I must say the mental pictures it inspires are vivid, epic and incredible. This book would make wonderful anime. My advice read it, option the rights.
