  1. I recommend The Baroque Cycle in the strongest possible terms. Yes, it seems intimidatingly long but didn’t Cryptonomicon seem that way at first, too? Its intellectualism is more subtle than what you came across in Anathem, at least until the final book, but that is sometimes a good thing.Report

      Thanks for the recommendation — after reading Anathem, I’m pretty sure I’ll be picking up the Baroque Cycle at some point. I was only lukewarm on Snow Crash, but I think I’d put Anathem up there with Ender’s Game.Report
