Normal humans are not capable of writing this great. Stephenson never fails to make my brain hurt (so good). Sure he overwrites (900 pages in book 1 alone - and it took me soooo long to read) but everything is pure gold. This may not be the best book of the author's to cut your teeth on (maybe read Anathem first to get his unique style) but this story has everything possible in it from calculus to ribald adventure. MUST READ!

A marvellous book and an amazing adventure. Worth taking the time to read this and the other 2 in the trilogy.
