by: Neal Stephenson

Publisher: William Morrow (2011)


This is 1000 pages of pure thriller. You will not want to set it down. While it lacks some of the depth found in his other works (Cryptonomicon, The Baroque Cycle, etc.) the craft behind such a blitzkrieg of plot and language is absurdly great.
