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.

P.S. Read Reason’s interview with Neal Stephenson (via kottke.org).
