Reamde is a speculative fiction novel by Neal Stephenson, published in 2011. The story, set in the present day, centers on the plight of a hostage and the ensuing efforts of family and new acquaintances, many of them associated with a fictional MMORPG, to rescue her as her various captors drag her about the globe. Topics covered range from online activities including gold farming and social networking to the criminal methods of the Russian Mafia and Islamic terrorists. ([Source][1])

Review of 'Reamde' on 'Goodreads'

4 stars

I find myself questioning how much my appetite for romanticized violence fuels my Neal Stephenson addiction. Does this story really lay it on any thicker than the others? Probably not. What's unusual is the proximity of some of the crazy plot to my everyday life, so perhaps I should thank him for bringing up these questions in addition to entertaining the hell out of me.
