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.
