    My favorite book

    Anathem is the best reading investment I've ever made. Anathem's world is similar to ours but with its own incredibly robust history, philosophy, religion, and science. As a result, the first 200 pages will be a bit slower going for new readers as they reference the incredibly detailed glossary of word definitions and historical events. Getting through these 200 pages and growing comfortable with the terminology is the investment readers will make in Anathem. But what an incredible payoff that investment yields. The plot is designed so that it fully takes off at almost exactly the same moment readers grow comfortable with the world building and terminology. When it takes off, it takes off at full-throttle, with a gripping, globe-trotting adventure filled with memorable characters, and twists and turns in the plot that never feel out-of-place or forced. It becomes the most intelligent can't-put-it-down thriller you've ever read. I reached the end of the book wanting more stories in this incredible world that Stephenson has built. If you put in the time needed to get to know this incredible world, I promise you will too.

    Awesome book

    Neal Stephenson has created a fascinating world and, once it gets going, a real page turning adventure. Definitely worth reading, especially if you have even a layman interest in math and philosophy.
