Zoner en fuego!

Cryptonomicon

I finally got around to reading this book - I started on my flight out to Vegas, read it while I was there, and finished it on the flight home.

It rocked. I really loved it. Not many books make me laugh out loud and this one got me several times, a couple of times I about laughed myself sick. I think one of the reasons I liked it so much is that Randy, the main character, is close to my idealized image of myself. Rather like the Undocumented Features: Future Imperfect version of me. So I ended up seeing Randy that way, and Avi as portrayed by the UF:FI version of z_gryphon and the character interaction was just perfect.
