What did you make of Cryptonomicon, DW?

I loved his Snow Crash and Diamond Age.

I found it really interesting, I studied Modern History for my second degree, and did a lot of reading about the Second World War. I loved the parallel storyline in the novel between the enigma code cracking story and Bletchley Park and the modern cryptographic storylines. If you liked Snow Crash, you'll like Cryptonomicon I think.

Oh, I have read it!


Loved it. I gather that there should be a sequel in the works, but that was a while ago, now. I may have even been completed.

Ahhh cool :) I also love The Diamond Age, but that was more poststeampunk stuff than his other works....

Currently reading World War Hulk and Marvel 1602.

I've also heard Sandman is pretty solid, so it looks like that's next.

I just finished "Alice in Wonderland," and now I'm about a third of the way through "At the Mountains of Madness." Next up are "Neuromancer" and "Atlas Shrugged."

I was reading Phillip Pullman's His Dark Materials (book 1 is otherwise known as 'The Golden Compass'/'Northern Lights'), and before that I polished off Jim Butcher's Codex Alera series (it's not done yet, but I've read up the the most current book).

Jim Butcher, btw, is a fantastic writer. His other series, The Dresden Files, is wholeheartedly kickass. The sci-fi network rendition of the novels did them zero justice. Dresden files is a fantasy/urban fiction/detective cross genre piece, but Codex Alera is straight up epic fantasy at it's finest.

What sucks is that in between each book is the mind numbing span of about a year. Totally worth the wait, though.

I finished "At the Mountains of Madness" today. Good, but slightly over-rated, in my opinion.

I followed this by reading the first 80-odd pages of "Atlas Shrugged" in one sitting. That one is truly a masterpiece and I can't wait to keep reading.

I am on book 4 of Sin City, I can't remember the name of it, but I'm going by publication order.

I just finished The Big Fat Kill, it was really good.

Once you've worked your way through that series, give The Filth a shot (if you haven't already).
