Quicksilver

Am currently reading Neal Stephenson’s Quicksilver (The Baroque Cycle, Vol. 1) in between bouts of fiddling with the server. Full review coming after I’m finished with it, of course, but I just can’t wait to sing its praises.

I’m in awe. This is what Gravity’s Rainbow would have been like if Pynchon wasn’t so stoned*. Unbelievably rich, textured, and engrossing.

It’s starting to look like Stephenson is truly The Man.

*Not to in any way besmirch Gravity’s Rainbow. That would be blasphemy.

You have thoughts? I’m @niclindh on Twitter and I want to know what you think.
