The Diamond Age, or: A Young Lady’s Illustrated Primer



A pretty entertaining adventure story with interesting ideas about education, information economics, and futurism, but there’s no ending! There’s this huge buildup that sets characters and gigantic forces in action, and then the book ends right as things are getting significant. Sometimes the journey is more important, but I think a story should have a destination anyway.
