I didn't like but cannot blame the author for it, because the Baroque Cycle are my first reads of Stephenson. So, like other readers mentioned earlier: you know it is one of his earlier books. Characters are mostly pale, the whole story lacks suspense and Sangamon Tayler, the 'Granola James Bond' is always and in every situation the super cool guy in a way that is getting more and more annoying. The only likeable figure is his room mate Bart and Boone, the eco terrorist. The bad guys are pale, some heavy metal guys on drugs, a yuppy CEO killer and a weird rival from university days. And coming to that Eco Thriller stuff, compared to Frank Schätzings 'The Swarm', 'Zodiac' is lame.
