Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson

Snow Crash - Neal Stephenson

Neuromancer was the first cyberpunk novel I read, but my favourite is Snow Crash.  It takes a humourous twist on a cpunk story that I found refreshing, right down to the main character of the story, Hiro Protagonist.  Creative and whimsical, this is not a dark tale like most.  He also creates some unusual characters.  A great story for anyone to read.
