    "If you like neal's stuff this one has to be like his best one. Literally can't stop reading it every time I happen to pick it up."

    "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!"

    "This is a very special fiction book, it tells an intriguing story, it many colorful characters with unique stories behind, and i can say that it is one of the best sci-fi books i have read. I am sure that every reader will remember the story of this book. "

    "Cryptonomicon is a great book. I really did love it. Mr. Stephenson is a great author. I think it's probably a top 10 science fiction book in the 21st century. If you like sci fi then this is a must read. "

    "Any sci fi fan should take a crack at this one. Yeah, it won awards and all that, but that's not what makes it a good read. Take a shot and spend some time with this great read."
