Product description

Review

"[A] massive tour-de-force- Dense, witty, erudite, packed with fascinating characters, and gripping despite a distended length, Quicksilver is both a worthy prequel to Cryptonomicon, and an indication that Stephenson's Baroque Cycle is shaping up to be a far more impressive literary endeavour than most so-called "serious" fiction - No scholarly, and intellectually provocative, historical novel has been this much fun since The Name of the Rose." (Charles Shaar Murray Independent)

"Staggering diversity and detail ... An astonishing achievement." (Sunday Telegraph)

"A great, heaving countryside of a book...consistently funny...fluent and elusive, while retaining just the right hint of poison" (Telegraph)

"Stephenson mixes a library’s worth of ideas with compulsive derring-do … its scope and inventiveness become addictive." (Time Out)

"A breathless ride…the writing gives an immersive sense of time and place" (Face)

Book Description

The first novel in Neal Stephenson's acclaimed Baroque Cycle.
