it was amazing

This is the most fun I've had reading a Neal Stephenson novel since SNOWCRASH. Co-author Nicole Galland brings a nice light touch to the proceedings so that it doesn't delve too much into technobabble. Witches, time-travel, and governmental bureaucracy all combine to deliver a thrilling read that I finished over a single weekend. GOOD STUFF!

Morgannah Hi Joe! I hope you don't mind me asking but how did you get your ARC? I have been trying to get one in all the usual places but am not having any luck.
Thank you! (great review by the way!)

I'm a buyer at a book store and I get ARCs through my job.


Morgannah Thank you Joe, you can send it my way now that you are finished if you are feeling generous....I'm just saying. ;)

Dreadalus That's high praise, Joe. Stephenson certainly has been heavy slogging for a while now. Mostly enjoy Anathem, but skipped almost all of the Baroque Cycle. Seems like commercial success breeds some kind of editorial hands-off policy just when it's most needed to give the authors a good thrashing.

Eloise Flood I loved the Baroque Cycle but agree, you've got to be in the right mood, for the most part, to read a Neal Stephenson novel. This was a lot more of a page turner than they often are.
