I loved Cryptonomicon so bought this immediately on seeing it.

Couldn't get past the first few pages without thinking: "contrived, pretentious nonsense".

This is the first of a series of three, the third being very recently published, however I need someone to take this substantial tome off my hands, read it, and then maybe I'd revisit based on feedback.

Take it away...

I'm finally journalling this, apologies for the delay. Don't know when I'll get to read it!

I've finally read it! It took me ages to get into it, but once I did, I loved it. It ended too suddenly though - I didn't really realise what happened Jack and I would have liked either to know more about the other, or to have a more conclusive ending. It seemed to just stop arbitrarily. Took a long time to read, but it's worth it, in my opinion.
I think I'll give this to DavidG666. He might like it too.
