Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson
4.0 out of 5 stars Neal gets it right., April 30 2002
I read both "Snow Crash" and "The Diamond Age" and had the same feelings about both: amazingly interesting concepts, good execution for the first 75%, and then a complete and total collapse in the final chapters. With "Cryptonomicon", Neal Stephenson finally gets it right. This book is an absorbing read from cover to cover and combines fiction with history and technical details in an extremely entertaining way.
Now if only he'd go back and re-write the endings of his other two books...
