Inhaltsangabe

The Difference Engine is an alternate history novel by William Gibson and Bruce Sterling. It is a prime example of the steampunk sub-genre; It posits a Victorian Britain in which great technological and social change has occurred after entrepreneurial inventor Charles Babbage succeeded in his ambition to build a mechanical computer called Engines.

The fierce summer heat and pollution have driven the ruling class out of London and the resulting anarchy allows technology-hating Luddites to challenge the intellectual elite.

A set of perforated punch cards come into the hands of the daughter of an executed Luddite leader who sets out to keep them safe and discover what secrets they contain.

What a complete waste of time

I bought this book because I was very impressed by William Gibson's short stories. The writing style here is nothing likein Burning Chrome for example. The story is ridiculously primitive although I must admit I didn't make it very far, because the two characters appearing first don't manage to become interesting at all within the first 45 minutes of listening. This is a complete waste of time end can't stand listening to this any more.
