Have you ever read a book that was written in such a way that you felt it was contemporary, although it may have been written and published long before? Along the same lines: Did you ever read a contemporary book that was written in a way that made it nearly impossible to tell what era it was set in?
For me, I found Snow Crash, by Neal Stephenson to have incredible foresight. It was written between 1989 and 1992, but the description of the "metaverse" is EERILY prophetic. There were a few little hints here and that would have hinted to the actual time the book was written in, but it was a fun challenge to catch them.
Mary McGarry Morris' A Dangerous Woman seemed nearly impossible to figure out. It could have been set anywhere from the late 70s to the late 90s. Anyone ever read it?
