I loved Snow Crash but gave up on Anathem after about 100 pages. For those of you who've read Cryptonomicon, is it more accessible than Anathem?
Anathem is a terrible slog at first, but well worth the read! Give it another go! Cryptonomicon was the first of Stephenson's books I read, and it is more approachable than Anathem or the Baroque Cycle.
I also slogged thru the first hundred or so pages of Anathem and eventually put it down. I've read some great long books that started really slow, but I just couldn't finish that one.
Haha, last night I bailed on Anathem. Decided to read Quicksilver instead. At least I don't have to try and understand the concept of the Hundreders, thousanders, decaders, and whatnot anymore. Maybe I'll come back to it... bizarre concept, unique, just wasn't sure I really cared where it was going!
My favorite book. Made me so hard my wife started to complain. It is a long read but I wished it would have not ended as quickly anyway.
Snow Crash is a real easy read, good to get into other Stephenson books. Diamond Age is sort of in between Snow Crash and Cryptonomicon, real good read too. Chewing through Quicksilver at the moment...
