A truly kick-ass quote  
"Do you need transportation? Tools? Stuff?"

"Our opponent is an alien starship packed with atomic bombs," I said. "We have a protractor."


Anathem may be the best Neal Stephenson novel since Snow Crash.

And then Cord offers to find string! LOVE THAT.

I agree with you. There'll always be a special place in my heart for The Baroque Cycle and Cryptonomicon is an island unto itself, but wow. Anathem is a roller coaster of amaze-matic wonderosity.

I'm so glad you're digging it!

I'm totally loving it. So glad to be reading it.

I actually got it from a girlfriend who couldn't get past the first chapter. Her loss, my gain, I suppose!
