    Haha. I've known at least 1 person to rave about that book though.
    Your kisses, sweeter than honey. But guess what, so is my money.

    Yeah, that happened for me with Atlas Shrugged. omg was that an awful book, and I read a lot of awful books just out of boredom. But it gets rave reviews from some.

    I think Ayn Rand is one of those people who you have to read when you're an angsty teen. I really liked The Fountainhead, but I don't think I could go back and reread it.

    I'm just going to say I've read enough of Cryptonomicon. I have parts of the baroque cycle and snow crash, but I don't know enough about them. I don't have Anathem. I don't mean to knock him though.. sometimes I just need to be in the right frame of mind to kickstart an interest in a book.

    No worries, people have different tastes. I just wanted to know because I always figured that Snow Crash was the easiest read and Diamond Age next. I couldn't imagine either of them being put down halfway. The others are a different story, I could see them disagreeing more with people.

    Having read only Cryptonomicon before, and already having an interest in the subject matter, I thoroughly enjoyed it. If you're not a fan of math/cryptology perhaps Cryptonomicon is not the best book of his to start out with. His male characters are thoroughly interesting to read about, coming from a female NF perspective. His female characters are not as well-developed, unfortunately.
