Shallow, poorly imagined and for over 900 pages, thin soup.,

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Cryptonomicon (Gebundene Ausgabe)
This over-hyped genre piece will no doubt appeal to net heads and cyberrats, who have no knowledge of literature and it's antecedents, save Tom Clancy and his ilk, and could care less. Comparisons to Gravity's Rainbow may make good copy, but the idea is laughable and absurd. Pynchon is a serious artist and novelist. Stephenson is a word-drunk, abeit clever, pretender. True art should teach, not simply flaunt itself on the back of the latest "hot-button" techno-craze. Unfortunately, a serious waste of time and space. Relentlessly unoriginal.
