I’m about an eighth of the way through “Cryptonomicon” by Neal Stephenson. He gets me. He understands. He doesn’t write as an outsider, describing us. He has to have thought this way, internally, himself.

@fifonetworks yes.

Also, the way he explains stuff, so that no matter whether you knew it before or not, it's fun to read, is just amazing.

@fifonetworks His other books have similar quantity, especially Anathem and Seveneves.
