yet another book

While discussing some of my HPS interests with my boss, she suggested I try reading some Stephenson, particularly his Baroque Cycle. To date, I’d only read Snow Crash, though I liked the ideas and the story, at times it seemed to read too much like a movie script for my liking. Based on my boss’s comments, as well as some quick googling, I went ahead and bought Quicksilver, the first in the series. I’m about 60 pages in, appreciating the steady pace, and looking forward to the remaining 900 odd pages of this, the first volume. I’ve barely scratched the surface but already liking the feel of it.
