i’ve fallen behind on noting what books i’ve read recently (and movies i’ve seen). one of those is cryptonomicon by neal stephenson. i was a little bit apprehensive about the book, but i enjoyed it quite a bit. a common complaint of the reviews i’ve since read has been that the ending is rushed, but i can’t say that was something that bothered me. it was an engaging story with engaging characters, and you really can’t ask for a whole lot more from a book.


i went into that book with a full head of steam from _snow crash_ but ended up hating it thoroughly when i was done. it had no point, no twist, no "gotcha", nothing. just a long, drawn out story with a sputtering ending.
