    Disclaimer Had Mr Stephenson beenskillful in his prose characterization writing in general, I would not have paid nearly as much attention to the following issues I read a lot of old dead white guy type literature, and am pretty forgiving so long as it s good If

    Pretenses are shabby things that, like papier mache houses, must be energetically maintained or they will dissolve Neal Stephenson has written an overlong novel focusing on the significance of cryptography both in the world today and the time of World War II He links the

    Cryptonomicon by Neal Stephenson, is to techno intellectuals as Bryant Denny Stadium is to redneck college football fans it is a monument According to Stephenson in this very enjoyable, but lengthy book nerds won the Second World War and are keeping global society free from tyrann

    One of the problems when reviewing Cryptonomicon is that you could easily end up writing a short novel just trying to summarize it Here s my attempt to boil the story down to its essence.During World War II, Lawrence Waterhouse is a genius mathematician who is part of the effort to break J

    Reading this book was a lot like riding in a car that steadily picks up speed and then stalls out I wanted to like it a great dealthan I ended up doing I would be trucking along, really getting into it, starting to get eager about turning the page and finding out what was going to happen next, and

    My friend Stuart s reading this and I stupidly started spoiling one of the best lines in the book it pops up as Shaftoe s motto and he was mildly irritated with me Fortunately for him, he is vastly smarter than me so while he was quite generously acting annoyed he was probably thinking to himself, Maybe one

    2015 reread In World War II, Bobby Shaftoe is a Marine, and Lawrence Waterhouse is a cryptographer In the present, Randy Waterhouse is part of a tech start up in the Phillipines How are the two threads linked, other than by the mysterious Enoch Root Okay, so this kitten squisher is a lotcomplicated that but after 1200 reviews, it s hard to come up with teasers some days.As noted above, this was not my first time reading Cryptonomicon I first read it when it was published, way back in 2015 reread In World War II, Bobby Shaftoe is a Marine, and Lawrence Waterhouse is a cryptographer In the present, Randy Waterhouse is part of a tech start up in the Phillipines How are the two threads linked, other than by the mysterious Enoch Root Okay, so this kitten squisher is a lotcomplicated that but after 1200 reviews, it s hard to come up with teasers some days.As noted above, this was not my first time reading Cryptonomicon I first read it when it was published, way back in the bygone days before the world moved on When it popped up for 1.99 on one of my cheap o emails, I snapped it up.This mammoth tome is classified as science fiction but could easily be looked at as historical fiction since the sf element is minuscule Neal Stephenson weaves together multiple plot threads, three during World War II and one in the present day, and produces a fine tapestry of a novel.On one hand, you have Randy Waterhouse, part of the Epiphyte corporation, a start up dedicated to creating a data haven in the Phillipines On the other, you have the converging tales of a Marine named Bobby Shaftoe, a cryptographer named Lawrence Waterhouse, and Goto Dengo, a Japanese engineer As diverse as the elements are, Stephen manages to bring everything together Eventually.I was an apple cheeked young lad when I first read this, back when the internet was still new to most of us Now, as a curmudgeon 15 years older, I still enjoyed reading it quite a bit Despite my usual intolerance for digressions, and this book has many, I found it hard to put down for long The bits of history, cryptography, and the proper way to eat Captain Crunch all held my attention.In the years between my first read and this one, I d forgotten how hilarious this book can be at times Lawrence Waterhouse is a bit like Sheldon Cooper of The Big Bang Theory, only less likely to have the shit kicked out of him on a regular basis if he were a real person.Funny how some things never change, though My gripes the first time through were my gripes this time While I enjoyed the journey, the writing could have been tightened up a bit I felt like Stephenson was driving around looking for a free parking space when there was already one pretty close to the door Also, a part near the ending, which I will not spoil here, came out of left field and felt tacked on, unnecessary, and kind of stupid Also, I maintain that Stephenson hasn t written a great ending since Zodiac Other than that, I thought the book was pretty great Four out of five stars

    I am FINIIIIIISHED I thought it didn t have an ending I thought Neal Stephenson kept sneaking to my house and insertingpages in the back while I was asleep I thought he would never be appeased until I begged him to stop with a deck of cards, morse code and a wide variety of pleading looks This is a massive boy book A MASSIVE

    Cryptonomicon.A 1000 page tech info dump comfort read Yes, comfort read,I think this is my fourth read of this wonderful novel and it just keeps on giving I m still picking up new subtleties, offhand comments that I missed, imagery that was lost on me on the last time through There is a reason why this is one of my favourite novels


  10. says:

    I m shocked by the critical acclaim this book received in the sci fi category but I suppose even a turd can float Two stars is really pushing it Maybe a star for the number of laughs I got per 100 pages This is the work of a technically inept egomaniac He does have some technical background he drops Unix hints and anagrams the name of a suppo
