Don't expect Cryptonomicon,
This review is from: Interface (Paperback)
I loved Cryptonomicon just as much as i loved The Baroque Trilogy. This is a huge disappointment beside those. I don't know what happened - whether it was the result of it being a collaborative effort maybe, but I didn't feel the least sympathy for any of the characters. We get a predictably heroic Governor, a predictably beautiful and brilliant-at-everything daughter, pop-up bad guys, and a waster who suddenly and inexplicably goes off his rocker and decides to kill the Governor.
I love Stephenson's works, and this was a good idea, but ultimately it was unbelievable and unrecommendable
