I did it. I read this book. It was a journey, and I believe I'm better off for it. I'm glad to have read this book, but I would have a hard time recommending this to others. The phrase "needlessly complex" comes to mind. But if anyone is entitled to writing needlessly complicated works of speculative fiction: it's the author of Cryptonomicon and Reamde. Keep doing what you're doing, Neal. It's ok if this one didn't a hit home run with this particular reader. I'll keep reading anything you write, because you are really good at writing books that I like to read.
