One book too many, 22. Juli 2000
This is the title that closes the chapter on Stephenson for me. I'd enjoyed Snow Crash enough to overlook the accumulating cuteness that gooed up the end, and I found sufficient merit in Diamond Age to offset the even larger splashes of the same defect marring that volume. However, despite its ambitious conception, Cryptonomicon is a showcase of sloppy writing and errors of fact. Even more damning, though, is the tone throughout of cleverness so precious it made me gag. I read to the end out of a sense of responsibility to the friend who placed the book in my hands, but do yourself a favor and spend your book dollars on something worth the effort.
