    "This is an interesting one for me. I've read a handful of Stephenson's later books (I still need to hit earlier ones like Snow Crash), and the one thing they all had in common was some over-arching, Really Big Idea that blew your mind, or was deceptively simple but the details and consequences of it blew your mind. Reamde seems to break from that mold in that it is basically just a modern day thriller. But ho boy, this is one damn good thriller."

    "The Boroque Cycle has some of Neal Stephenson's best books. To get to those, you have to read Quicksilver. Unfortunately this is not his best one, but it still has a story that will get you interested, and it's a gateway to the true beauty that shines in books two and beyond."

    " This book deals about two key frictional figures (Jack and Eliza) in the turbulent religious, intellectual, and social world of England and, to a lesser extent France in the late 17th and early 18th centuries,which is irresistible.we can read this for the pleasure of getting to know Isaac Newton, Louis 14th, and other historical persons.it is a nice book to read."
