Remind me never to read reviews written by my most ardent "fans."This book is great, but it appears Team Stephenson was expecting the opening of the Ark of the fucking Covenant.If you want a smart, contemporary, geeky, international action thriller written by someone who just spent 10 years writing an epic about the connections between the tech of the 17th century and the tech of the 21st—in longhand, on, like, parchment, with a fountain pen, the showboating bastard—then read this.It's fun. And funny. And damned good.If you want something else, put this down, walk away, and go on witcha bad self. Don't hurt nuffin, neiva—there's bound to be a new Patterson out by Tuesday.That is all.
