Re: Any Fans of Neal Stephenson?
Cryptonomicon is very good, as is Quicksilver. However, both books seem to be much more about painting a portrait of a time in history rather than telling a coherent plot (rather like Kim Stanley Robinson's Mars Trilogy in fact, just set on Earth in the late 17th and early 18th Century). When he does have plots kicking in, they become unputdownable.
The Confusion and The System of the World are on stand-by to read. After them I'll get round to The Diamond Age and Snow Crash.
