Snow Crash is one of those books that I've had recommended to me over and over again and I just haven't gotten to them. Trying not to overwhelm myself with scifi/fantasy now that I've started into both The Dark Tower (Currently finished up Wizard & Glass) and Game of Thrones (only read the first book thus far). Onto a book called Flauberts Parrot on recommendation from a friend. Never read Madame Bovary and have no background of Flaubert himself, though it's mostly unneeded and the book is really insightful and succinct at 190 pages. might move back into Game of Thrones after I'm done now that I've helped my girlfriend cultivate a love/hate relationship with the tv series.
