Zodiac The Eco Thriller Summary ê PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free Believe it or not some readers find Zodiac even fun than Neal Stephenson's defining 1990s cyberpunk novel Snow Crash Zodiac is set in Boston and hero Sangamon Taylor S T ironically describes his hilarious exploits in the first person S T is a modern superhero a self proclaimed Toxic Spiderman With stealth spunk and the backing of GEE. Sangamon Taylor just might be the love of my life and as far as I m concerned the fact that he s an emotionally unavailable fictional character is kind of a win win By my metrics of greatness billing ST that s what all the cool kids call him as the Granola James Bond undersells him by a long shot Employed as a professional asshole his words by GEE an environmental activist group in Boston ST is a chemist by training a fan of avoiding Boston traffic by taking to its waterways in his sometimes trusty Zodiac and overall is pretty much eual parts super spy mad scientist and sardonic badass at large So what makes Sangamon Taylor so swoon worthy 1 He s great at hand to hand underwater combat which is kind of a must 2 Dude knows his way around a lab but he s a nerd of the people using six packs of beer to illustrate the difference between benzene rings and phenyls is beyond brilliant In a pinch ST would definitely know how to make use of dry ice and a fun sexy little molecule some like to call dihydrogen monoxide 3 Speaking of molecules Sangamon s Principle The simpler the molecule the better the drug comes in handy in the event that one needs to decide what kind of pick me up to employ before going into battle 4 ST knows that no grenade is a good grenade but sometimes you ve gotta lay all tinnitus concerns aside and pull the pin 5 He definitely knows how to make the best of a bad situation 6 Last but not least Sangamon Taylor understands that it s not about the size of the boatit s about the engine and knowing how to use it I could go on but I don t want to induce seizures among the gif sensitive masses I m far from being a Neal Stephenson expert but rumor has it that Zodiac is an exception to the rule for those who otherwise are not big Stephenson fans

Zodiac is the first book I ve read by Neal Stephenson an author I see mentioned fairly often often with mixed reviews My own reaction to this particular book is a little mixed The title Zodiac refers to a type of motorized raft the characters used The story is set in Boston and is told from the first person perspective of a character who tries to catch publicize and prevent corporations from dumping toxic chemicals into the Boston Harbor Naturally the big powerful corporation people aren t happy and don t take his interference lying down The book is probably better classified as a Thriller than as Science Fiction There was at least one small science fiction element but for the most part it seemed entirely based on technology and scientific knowledge from the 1980 s when the book was published There s a decent amount of science usually explained well enough for the layman to understand and I never felt like I was reading infodumps I learned some things and I liked that On the other hand the story itself just wasn t that appealing to me Since the book is story driven than character driven it was hard to be too enthusiastic about it if I wasn t enthusiastic about the story itself I liked the main character well enough but I never felt attached and I didn t feel much interest in the other characters at all As far as entertainment level this was pretty middle of the road for me There were parts when I did feel eager to learn what would happen next but mostly I didn t feel any compulsion to keep reading when I had other things to do Fortunately this was a pretty short book If it had been stretched out into a longer book I might have had trouble making it to the end
