I finally finished "Cryptonomicon" which is primarily a WWII spy novel, it is really good but 1140 pages so not for the faint of heart. Arguably it could use some pretty serious editing, but on the other hand some of the extraneous stuff is what I liked best (like the three pages on the optimal method of eating Cap'n Crunch cereal). I'm looking forward to Stephenson's next book, so far the two I have read "Snow Crash" and "Crypto" have been really good.

I am about 200 pages into Cryptonomicon and so far it is very good. He does go into math a bit heavy, but I'm a math nerd so that is ok. I just put the book down and read Redwall but I think I will be picking the book up again. (Redwall took me a day to read)

I'll keep an eye out for the Captain Crunch references.
