A story about "Cryptonomicon" — 7 years ago
I love this book. First time I read it I couldn’t pick up any new book for almost a month afterwords, needed to recover from it. I finished it about 6 months ago, and have started it again recently, half way through again and enjoying it just as much as before. It is slow at times and I’ve known a few people who couldn’t get through it, but I haven’t had that problem. All the characters as so deep and interesting and they are the reason this book is great, the story is just icing on the cake.
