5.0 out of 5 stars Stephenson's best, 3 Dec 2009
This review is from: Anathem (Paperback)
Having read everything by Neal Stephenson, I can honestly say that this is his very best. He balanced all his familiar themes - scholarship, technology, philosophy, mysticism (is there such a thing as scientific mysticism) and politics beautifully. Although long, it didn't leave me exhausted like The Baroque Cycle - in fact it finished too soon.

My only criticism is a small one - his women. They are all too perfect. Not that women aren't indeed, lovely, intelligent, well organized and constant in general, but it becomes predictable after a while.

Blimey - I loved this book. I think I might start again from the beginning now.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing special, 31 May 2008
= Fun:3.0 out of 5 stars 
My 6yo daughter got this game as a treat - she wasn't very impressed. Fairly repetitive for a 6 year old. It may be better for an older child.

The graphics are not particularly special.
