Michele and I went to Schuler's at lunch today and picked up Neal Stephenson's new novel Quicksilver (which I note has just been reviewed over at Christianity Today). His previous work Cryptonomicon remains one of the best novels I've read in recent years, and I'm eager to see what he does with the 17th-century setting.

I love epic, rambling books about Grand Ideas, and that seems to be something that Stephenson does very well. I'll let you know what I thought of Quicksilver once I've made my way through it (which may be a while, given the book's length).

(And Mark, now that you're finished with Snow Crash, what did you think?)


Pretty cool.
