The Baroque Cycle. Finished. ‘Nuff said.
But now I have to go back and read Cryptonomicon just to try to find out all of the ways in which the two book sare connected to each other. I do recommend all of the Baroque Cycle, especially if you have any kind of interest in historical novels (which I do). At times it’s quite hard to read and requires concentration, e.g. when Waterhouse and Newton ramble about various philiosophikal matters, but other parts just fly by.
