If not for the voice of Sangamon Taylor Neal Stephenson s Zodiac would have been a relatively okay eco thriller but the book isn t just the voice of Sangamon Taylor it IS Sangamon Taylor and once again Stephenson s ability to create compelling leading men think Hiro Protagonist in Snow Crash makes one of his books superior to the pulp it was inspired bySangamon Taylor is Boston Harbor s very own Toxic Avenger Working for GEE a thinly veiled fictional Greenpeace ST spends his days testing the waters in his Zodiac so that he can trace the waste dumping of Boston s big bad corporations He s already got two corporation kills on the side of his boat and he s going for the kill that will make him an ace ST declares himself to be an asshole I do it for a living and he is to some extent He hangs up on a cranky old cancer victim he strings along Debbie the girl he loves and runs away from any chance of commitment with assiduity he regularly partakes of any drug that doesn t break Sangamon s Principle of Simple Compounds and even a few that do he s foul mouthed cynical and egotistical But the very fact that he knows he s an asshole and is the one to admit all of these flaws to his audience suggests that he really isn t and that little twist makes all the bad bits of ST enjoyable than they should be and all of the good bits positively entertaining Or maybe there s just so much of me in the slightly overweight Big Mac munching bike riding drugged up hypocritical invirinmentalist that I have no alternative but to like him Whatever the motivation ST is likable and that likability allows Stephenson to do one important thing with Zodiac that other eco thriller writers cannot make the issues secondary Eco thrillers tend to be terminally preachy particularly those written in the last twenty or thirty years You open to page one see the soapbox and spend the rest of the book reading a never ending speechifying guilt trip But Zodiac lets entertainment be the thing and if you develop an increased sense of moral outrage at real world toxic dumping corporations then so be itFinally here s one warning to those who may be fooled by Stephenson s body of work Zodiac is at best Sci Fi lite But it isn t really even that If you re looking for his Sci Fi work look elsewhere If you are looking for Stephenson having fun however and writing so that you can have fun Zodiac is the book for you
