What the community says about Cryptonomicon
- "My teenage son reads this book every so often. He really enjoys it so based off that, I would say that it's a fantastic book. I've never seen him read anything else multiple times, even books that he says he enjoys. This was recommended to him by both his math teacher and football coach. It's why he picked it up. ""My son is top of his class in math. He's just fascinated with numbers. Reading on the other hand is his low point. I picked this up to try and change that. We have been reading it together and so far he loves it. Im so happy to find a book that grabs his attention. I I am enjoying it to myself. Very well written."
- ""Cryptonomicon" represents a well above-average pick for this particular category. This work is considered engaging, imaginative, interesting and very well written by a wide variety of readers. It is very readable, and offers a glimpse into the historical issues of economics, computing and the nature and strategy of war. "
- "While I appreciate learning about various awards Mr. Stephenson has won, and doubtless he deserves accolades for his work (which is highly influential in certain circles), actually learning something about Cryptonomicon would be helpful. While I have heard of the book, I don't know anything about the plot or the characters, and I still don't after reading this comment."
- "Cryptonomicon is a Neal Stephenson classic. The author of other venerable titles such as Snow Crash, this book has a wonderfully unique cyberpunk setting. If you're like me, the old school science fiction can get kind of dry and boring - but Cryptonomicon is a fascinating and colorful tale about people, not computers or spaceships. I highly recommend this, and Snow Crash too!"
