Spoiler warning.

I really wanted to like this book. I have loved some of what I’ve read of KSR’s work, and I wanted this to be as wonderful an experience for me as others have reported it was for them. And indeed there are some cool things about this book. Unfortunately my enjoyment of them was ruined by certain aspects of the book that I frankly found appalling. But as far as I know, in the general uncritical adulation, hardly anyone has pointed out some of the things that make this a less than stellar work. So I am sticking my neck out in full anticipation of having it chopped off. Because some things need to be said.
