* WhiteGuyGetsTheGirl: The three female characters (one African and two Asians) in the book are strong and capable so they don't quite fit the "mellow" part of the {{Mighty Whitey and Mellow Yellow}} trope but in the end [[spoiler:they all end up with white guys]]. For the two Asian women, they feel an immediate, compelling attraction to a white guy within moments of meeting under crazy, extreme circumstances.
* WordSaladTitle: Like several of Stephenson's previous novels, the title is a made-up word found within the story. It's apparently supposed to be "README" with the letters transposed, either as a result of a typo or a lack of writing proficiency. Stephenson pronunces the titles as "REAM-duh"
